FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez has played down Gerard Pique's comments regarding the club's pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.

Neymar was involved in the biggest transfer saga in the last window after the Ligue 1 giants revealed he wanted to leave the club, with a return to Barcelona on the cards.

Pique revealed last month some of the players would change their contracts due to the Financial Fair Play issue should they sign the Brazilian.

However, Suarez insists the players had no say when it came to the pursuit of their former star, who registered 105 goals and 76 assists in 186 appearances.

"Sometimes you have to take what Geri says with a pinch of salt," Suarez told Sport.

"He has the gift of the gab and a lot of experience in making comments. In this case, he knows and is completely aware that the players were completely removed from the Ney case.

"We were ready to welcome him - him or any other player that wants to come - but always distanced from what was going on."
