Barcelona legend Rivaldo believes that young attacker Ousmane Dembele will lose his place in the squad if the Catalan giants re-sign Paris Saint Germain (PSG) star Neymar.
Ex-Barcelona star Rivaldo spoke about Dembele, Neymar and Barcelona in a chat with Betfair.
According to him, the return of Neymar will lead to limited playing time for Dembele if he decides to stay at Barcelona beyond this summer’s transfer window.
Rivaldo also said that Dembele’s fitness issues won’t let him secure a move away from Barcelona this summer.
Ousmane Dembele has been discussed as a makeweight in the deal to sign Neymar from PSG but the Frenchman is likely to stay at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona want to re-sign Neymar this summer after his two years with PSG.
The Brazilian is keen to leave PSG for Barcelona whom he left controversially in 2013.
Neymar has scored 51 goals in 58 appearances for PSG.
The 27-year-old has few days left to realise his desire of returning to Barcelona with the European transfer market scheduled to end on the 2nd of September.
Neymar has not played for PSG this season after returning to the club with the ankle injury sustained in an international friendly against Panama last month.
