‘Neymar Would Be A Bomb In Barca's Locker Room’ – Stoichkov Opposes Bid To Re-Sign Player

Neymar would be “a bomb inside the locker room” if brought back to Barcelona, says Hristo Stoichkov, with a Camp Nou legend opposed to any deal for the Brazilian forward.
Efforts by Blaugrana officials to re-sign the South American from Paris Saint-Germain have been stepped up.

An entourage has been sent to France for transfer talks, with Barca hoping that an agreement can be reached despite already investing heavily in Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong this summer.

Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu is understood to be steering the transfer plans, with there a desire on his part to return to Neymar to Catalunya as a marquee addition.

Stoichkov, though, believes a big-money deal will do more harm than good, with there no obvious role for him within an already star-studded squad.

The iconic former frontman told Univision: 

Barcelona does not need Neymar.

He has no place because there are already important players. There is [Ousmane] Dembele, Griezmann, [Luis] Suarez and[Lionel] Messi.

Where is he going to play? He would be a bomb inside the locker room.

Stoichkov, who took in two goal-laden spells with Barca in his playing days, added: 

For my part, I don't want him to come back.

Sure, there is a group of players who want him to return and ask the president to make an effort, but Barca will not spend a single euro bringing back because they have no money to pay PSG.
