NEYMAR

Neymar has been out of action since injuring his ankle in February.

Neymar is again being linked with a move to Real Madrid as a report in CalcioMercato suggests Paris Saint-Germain could be forced to sell the Brazilian to avoid Financial Fair Play (FFP) sanctions.

The 26-year-old is apparently eager to force through a switch back to Spain but PSG will only agree to sell up should financial issues dictate.

ARTHUR

Barcelona could be about to ditch a move for Gremio’s star midfielder Arthur, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Blaugrana are looking at cheaper alternatives with their option to buy at €35million forcing a rethink from Catalan club’s hierarchy. Real Betis’s Fabian is reportedly being considered.

Asked on Friday if he’d been contacted about their U-turn, the Brazil youth international said his advisors are handling the talks.

An emotional farewell for Andres Iniesta.

While Barcelona‘s entire squad, club president, coaching staff, manager Ernesto Valverde, officials and a packed press contingent were present during club legend Andres Iniesta‘s departure announcement on Friday, two notable figures were missing – Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

The 33-year old revealed that this would be his last season at the club where he has spent more than 20 years, admitting he will be leaving Europe to pursue a new challenge.

However, many found it surprising that Messi and Suarez were not in attendance.

However, the club’s justification for the duo not being able to attend the press conference was “due to personal reasons”.

The event was confirmed at just three hours notice.

The Argentinian and the Uruguayan will though be present for Iniesta’s official farewell next month.

Andres Iniesta’s decision to leave Barcelona brings to a close one of the great careers in European club football history.

The veteran midfielder may not yet be hanging up his boots for good, as reports circulate about a potential move to the Far East, but the European game will be poorer without him.

Alongside Lionel Messi, Iniesta, now 33, has been the heart and soul of Barcelona’s outstanding side of the last generation.

A technically gifted midfielder who is equally strong on either foot, Iniesta has ravaged defences with instinctive, pinpoint passes and nimble footwork throughout his career.

He has done this at the highest level, helping Barcelona claim a wealth of trophies since breaking into the first team in 2002. He is set to leave the Nou Camp with 32 major club honours to his name.

Thirty-one of these are already secure, including eight LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues. The 32nd, a ninth La Liga crown, seems set to be delivered imminently.

Here we take a look at how Iniesta was congratulated on what has been an immensely successful journey with his boyhood club.
