Barcelona Barcelona president is not attending
Barcelona are currently in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain over the potential return of Neymar to the Camp Nou, but Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu will not meet his PSG counterpart, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, at the European Club Association (ECA) conference in Liverpool on Thursday.
Although Bartomeu had originally planned on attending the meeting, he has now prioritised being at Barcelona‘s LaLiga Santander opener away to Athletic Club on Friday night.
It had been thought that Bartomeu may use the ECA meeting as an opportunity to speak with Al-Khelaifi and to improve relations between the two sides, but if they meet, it will not be in Liverpool.
As Mundo Deportivo reported, Barcelona‘s representative will instead be Wouter Lambrecht, the club’s lawyer, and he will be responsible for defending the Blaugrana‘s position.
