Neymar has lambasted Barcelona president, Josep Bartomeu, labeling him a 'joke' following comments the Barca chief made over the role the player's father had in his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian became the world's most expensive player when the Parisians prised him away from the Nou Camp in an eye-watering £198million deal earlier this summer.

Bartomeu revealed to Sport that the Catalan giants had made the mistake of trusting Neymar Snr, who is also his agent, too much in the transfer negotiations.

But the 25-year-old forward offered up a riposte on Instagram, commenting on a post from Esporte Interativo which showed Bartomeu's quotes.

“This president is a joke,” Neymar commented alongside four laughing emojis.

In the wake of the transfer, Barca earmarked Philippe Coutinho as their primary target to replace the outgoing Neymar — but failed in their bid to land the Liverpool playmaker.

They did, however, add exciting prospect Ousmane Dembele, bringing in the 20-year-old Frenchman for £96million.
