Andres Iniesta wants an end to the ongoing transfer speculation surrounding Barcelonateam-mate Neymar.
“I do not think 200-300 million will be more beneficial for Barcelona than having Neymar,” Iniesta told a news conference ahead of the Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Real Madrid.
“He is one of the best players in the world and I always want the best players in my team. I have no doubt that we all wish him to continue with us.
“We would like you (the press) to not keep asking (about Neymar) so much, but to end this, there is only one way: Neymar will speak.”
“We consider him a fundamental piece of the team and aside from that, for the whole situation [want] all this noise to be clarified by the player himself or from the club,” the club captain said.
“We [as players] just want peace which will benefit everyone – the players, the club and everything surrounding it.”
Neymar, whose buy-out clause at Barcelona was set at over 200 million euros ($234.96 million), cancelled a personal appearance in China next week because he was said to be “busy with transfer business”.
Iniesta also confirmed the training bust-up between Neymar and team mate Nelson Semedo on Friday but played it down, saying it only held more significance due to the recent transfer speculations.
“It’s true that there was that incident, which can be part of a training session,” Iniesta added.
“But because of the situation and what is being said about Ney, which is worldwide, it has much more significance. For those of us who are training however, it’s nothing.”
