Gerard Pique has said that Barcelona have to move on from the Neymar transfer melodrama that has engulfed the club all summer, while leaving the door open to another approach next year.
The Brazilian's return to Barça from Paris Saint-Germain was on-again and off-again on a daily basis throughout the transfer window, eventually being brought to a merciful end when negotiations between the clubs broke down in the days leading up to 2 September's deadline day.
However, that hasn't stopped a cavalcade of new stories suggesting that Barcelona haven't given up, and are now planning on forcing a deal through once the window reopens either in January or next summer.
Pique, however, has said that for the time being, the club need to focus on the players they currently have at their disposal and let the future take care of itself.
"It is nonsense that the market closes when three days have already been played, it should be done before. It is strange that there remain rumours and things that do not materialize.
