With Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar heavily tipped to return to FC Barcelona in the next transfer window, the Spanish club has reportedly made a huge call as to whether or not they will sign him.
According to Catalunya Radio, the LaLiga leaders have ruled out of the possibility of bringing the 28-year-old back to the club in the coming window.
The coronavirus crisis is set to have a huge impact on the Blaugrana's finances, which would reportedly make a move for the Brazil international difficult at this time.
While Neymar desires a return to the Camp Nou, and many of his former teammates would love to see him back in the squad, his signature could cost the Spanish champions upwards of €150 million (R3 billion).

It is suggested that cheaper alternatives are lined up for Barca, with Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, who plays alongside captain Lionel Messi for Argentina, being one of them.
It was recently claimed that PSG are prepared to sell Neymar in the upcoming window, and that the French giants would also allow his suitors to pay for his signature in instalments.
This, however, does not seem to have changed Barcelona's stance on moving for the player, who has scored 69 goals and assisted a further 39 strikes in 80 matches for the French giants since 2017.
