Neymar's Lawyers Spotted Entering Barcelona's Offices This Morning

Neymar's lawyers have been spotted entering Barcelona's offices this morning amid intense transfer speculation.

Juan de Dios Crespo, who completed the transaction for Neymar on behalf of PSG in 2017, has been pictured entering the club's offices for a meeting with Barcelona officials per Spanish outlet SPORT.

Crespo, however, has denied any involvement with Neymar in today's talks.

"For another client, and it has nothing to do with PSG," he said.

Esport3 have provided another possible reason as to why Crespo could be at Barcelona's HQ.

"The Valencian lawyer is a great eminence in sports law and is a regular adviser both in player transfers and in international litigation issues with FIFA, UEFA and TAS.

"In fact, he was hired by FC Barcelona as a result of the penalty imposed on FIFA in 2014 with regard to signings of minors which were considered illegal."

Neymar's future remains the subject of intense transfer speculation with Barcelona and Real Madrid strongly linked with the Brazilian superstar.

The 27-year-old was left out of Thomas Tuchel's squad for Paris Saint-Germain's opening league fixture on the weekend, but he was targeted by the club's own fans.

PSG ultras unfurled banners with some clear messages prior to their game against Nimes.

"Neymar f*** off," one banner read while supporters were chanting "son of a b***h".
