Barcelona boss Valverde discusses Neymar pursuit/provides Lionel Messi injury update
According to sources, Barcelona legend Lionel Messi no longer wants his club to sign Neymar Jr. who is keen on a return to the La Liga side two years after leaving them to join Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Moreover, with better defence, Stegen also has a chance to be guarded throughout the match.
The Argentina international has been nursing a calf injury for the past few weeks and it ruled him out of the club's pre-season tour to the United States.
Messi was also hitting volleys and running through posts in the tricky terrain. After a slow start to the season, they proved especially strong at home, losing only twice in La Liga over the course of the entire campaign.
Valverde was then asked about the ongoing transfer saga involving Neymar, but the Spaniard refused to get into it, instead using the question as an opportunity to bemoan the fact that the window is still open at all.
Barcelona will face Athletic Bilbao in the first La Liga match of the season and Ernesto Valverde's side will visit Basque club to start their campaign.
The story surrounding the future of Brazilian superstar Neymar has dominated the European headlines for months now.
Let us know in the comments section below.
Like Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong will be turning out for Barcelona for the first time in a competitive setting, when they take on Athletic Bilbao.
"I try to do a lot of things for myself, in the gym and everything, but in preseason you always need to be a bit careful because you have to gain fitness", he said.
"We're not going to take risks with players and certainly not with him", Valverde told a news conference.

That's difficult. The most beautiful football is difficult too, but we try to be the best team with the best football and we are steadily improving.
Even Neymar is apparently chipping in on a personal level to make the move happen with the BBC reporting that Ney-Ney is willing to slum it with his salary and drop some $15 million a year down to a mere $25 million. "The pressing that they give you [on the pitch] and the one coming from the crowd".
