Posted by badgeemmybxt

Neymar and Antoine Griezmann have been strongly linked with Barcelona and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has insisted nothing has changed after their recent behaviour.

The duo failed to report to pre-season training with their respective clubs this and it is understood that negotiations for the stars are still ongoing

Both players action have increased speculation about their transfer to the Spanish champions but Bartomeu refused to give any detailed comment.

La Blaugrana president was asked to comment on claims from Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo that an enquiry had been made for the Brazilian and was also quizzed on the Frenchman.

"We're presenting Neto," he responded.

"Nothing has changed regarding PSG and Neymar since what I said last Friday."

Neymar refusal to resume training with PSG's pre-season campaign got his father angry as he went on to deny his son deliberately did not want to return to the French club.

On the other hand, Griezmann also failed to turn up for Atletico Madrid pre-season tour with his move to Barcelona looked closer than expected.

Speaking last Friday, Bartomeu said: "We know Neymar wants to leave PSG, but we also know that PSG don't want him to leave.

"We don't like talking about players from other clubs, just as we don't like other clubs talking about our players. There's no Neymar case.

"I will reveal a secret," Bartomeu said when asked about Griezmann.

"Yesterday there was a meeting in Madrid between (Barca director) Oscar Grau and Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin to start talking about that matter."
