Barcelona should ignore what happened with Neymar in the past as they potentially look to sign the Paris Saint-Germain forward, according to Carles Puyol.
“Neymar can leave PSG, if there is an offer that suits everyone,” Leonardo told Le Parisien.
“But to date, we do not know if anyone wants to buy him or at what price. All this is not done in a day, that’s for sure.”
“In the end, you have to value the present, not so much the past,” Puyol said on Monday, via Spanish media.
“If the player is on the market and you need him, you don’t have to be thinking about what happened a few years ago.”
Neymar has still starred in two seasons with PSG, but both campaigns have been hampered by injuries.
However, Puyol believes the star forward can still deliver plenty for Barcelona.
“Neymar is a great player who can make a difference,” he said.
“He’s not been able to play his best football [at PSG] because of injuries, but he still has a lot to give to football.”
