Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has said that any club that wants to buy Neymar must break Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

The Brazilian forward has been linked with a world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 side ready to match the €222million release clause in Neymar’s contract.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Bartomeu sought to draw a line under the developing saga and warned PSG that they would be in breach of UEFA’s FFP rules, if they forced through a move for Neymar.

“He has a contract for the coming four years and, of course, we count on him,” Bartomeu said.

“He’s part of our team. He’s part of this [attacking] trident [with Messi and Luis Suarez].

“These clauses are impossible to activate if you want to comply with Financial Fair Play. If someone doesn’t want to comply, then of course it can be activated.”

Neymar has scored 105 goals in 186 games for Barcelona since joining from Santos in 2013. He only signed a new five-year contract running until 2021 last October.
