Neymar enjoyed a hugely successful spell at Camp Nou between 2013 and 2017, winning eight trophies in total, including two La Liga titles and the Champions League.
The 27-year-old formed one-third of a fearsome attacking trio alongside Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at Barca, but a desire to step out of the latter’s shadow led to his eventual departure.
Abidal told Mundo Deportivo when asked about the former Santos forward: “A top player, who has a Barca philosophy and who is performing at a high level, will always be an option.
“From there, at the sports level we can make decisions, but the whole financial issue, there are things that you can reach and others that you cannot.
“The future will say. If it continues at this level, because the season is very long, I will not say that it will be option number 1 but it can be a clear option.”
