Laporta is not concerned with words

Barcelona’s presidential candidate Joan Laporta declined to be drawn into commenting on Neymar’s comments that he wants to play alongside Lionel Messi again. The Brazilian caused some excitement on Wednesday, saying that the most desirable thing in his career is to reunite with the Barcelona captain, especially with Messi’s contract situation at the Camp Nou, very much in the air. “I’m not concerned with words,” Laporta told reporters. “I have things that I would like to say, but I won’t do it so that I don’t destabilize the team. The team is growing; we cannot destabilize them. I know I can do that and I will not play this game by giving names of players who might come in.”

“It’s okay for Neymar so say that. They are friends and have a relationship. Hopefully, Leo can wait and listen to the proposal made by the new Barcelona president. We have contact with Leo, and I know he respects me. We respect each other, but we haven’t discussed his renewal. He makes sure you can aspire to win everything. I want him to stay with Barcelona. In their time, together at the Camp Nou, Messi and Neymar won the treble, another LaLiga title, a Supercopa de Espana and two more Copa del Rey trophies.”
