Neymar's a no-go

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has dismissed reports linking Neymar with a return to the Nou Camp as "speculation" ahead of tonight's La Liga clash with in-form Sevilla.

Valverde's current problems will tempt many Barca fans to relish the potential return of the Brazilian who left the club 14 months ago for Paris St Germain in a world-record €222m deal.

While Barca go into the game without a domestic win in their last four - it is over a decade since the Catalan giants went five successive league matches without a victory - Sevilla's run of four straight triumphs has seen them clamber to the top of the table.

Valverde said: "I know that any time is a good time to think about Neymar but he is in another team and it is speculation.

"We are not in the market and it's not something you are going to see in the short term. It is a question that is good to entertain people but we don't know what will happen in the future."
