USA: 'We'll wait and see' - Pique fuels Neymar and Coutinho rumours

United States, Miami
August 7, 2019 at 10:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique spoke candidly about the possible return of PSG star Neymar to the Camp Nou, while giving a press conference from Miami's Hard Rock Stadium on Tuesday.

"We talk to him here but they are private conversations and I think it is not appropriate to say what we are talking about. In the end he is the one who would have to leave," Pique said. "The years we were with him, [we know] he is a 'crack' on and off the pitch. We'll wait and see what happens."

He also expressed his wish for Philippe Coutinho to remain at the club, as rumours swirl that Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is looking to offload the Brazilian midfielder.

The Catalan giants will play Napoli in Miami on Wednesday night, the first of a double-header between the two sides. Their mini-tour of the US continues in Michigan on Saturday, something which Pique criticised.

Talisman Lionel Messi has already been ruled out of both games with a calf strain in his right leg.

New signings Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong, both pictured at training, are likely to feature.
