Barca have now extended their winning run in the league to six matches and restore their five-point lead over Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, while Eibar remain in 13th position. In fact, the Brazil worldwide has started only one of Barca's last five fixtures and has struggled to make an impact when given the chance.

And the Standard report that Barca are stepping up efforts "behind the scenes" to bring Neymar back from Paris Saint-Germain, with that purchase funded by the offloading of Coutinho.
However, he made no mention of Neymar and any deal would nearly certainly have to wait until the summer. The La Liga leaders are looking to cash in on to fund a move for Neymar.
However, in a post on social media, Neymar Sr. has attempted to discredit the information by labelling it "fake news" twice.
A report by Radio Catalunya which is also cited by Sport, claims that the Brazilian has been in touch with Barca team-mates and that Andre Cury, an advisor to the Catalan club, met with Neymar's representatives.
