Barcelona signing Neymar 'wouldn't have helped', says Laporta

 The Blaugrana president has admitted in the past that, when he returned to office, efforts were made to bring a Brazilian superstar back to Camp Nou

Barcelona not re-signing Neymar “has been a good thing”, claims Joan Laporta, with the Blaugrana president admitting that bringing the Brazilian back to Camp Nou “wouldn’t have helped”.

Laporta revealed to Esport3 in September that a former favourite in Catalunya had expressed a desire to retrace his steps from Paris Saint-Germain once a presidential change had been made by the Liga giants.

No deal was to be done, though, and Neymar has gone on to sign a lucrative contract extension at Parc des Princes – where he has been reunited with former Barca team-mate Lionel Messi.
