"He's not in the plans for January," president Josep Maria Bartomeu said Friday, according to Marca. "Barcelona couldn't meet PSG's demands (this summer)."
Barcelona reportedly made several attempts to sign Neymar and even apparently tried to convince PSG to agree to a loan deal.
"We did everything possible to sign him," Bartomeu added.
Bartomeu said the opportunity to re-sign Neymar - who joined PSG in 2017 for a world-record €222 million - came up late in the summer window and that it was the player himself who requested a move back to the Camp Nou.
