Barcelona’s Xavi: We won’t let Neymar’s transfer saga affect him
The Spanish midfielder says that the 22-year-old is happy and is training normally.
Each week a new chapter seems to open in the drama surrounding Neymar’s transfer from Santos to Barcelona. The Brazilian himself has largely avoided speaking about the furore, preferring instead to focus on recovering from a recent injury.
Xavi has said that the Barcelona squad do not talk about it either and that it won’t be allowed to affect the former Santos man.
“We are trying to not let it affect him. We see a content and happy Neymar that is training 100%, like the rest of the team. If we see him looking down, we pick him up,” said the Spaniard at a press conference on Wednesday.
