Rather than whipping up interest in Saudi investment opportunities, the event risks becoming a public relations debacle because of the disappearance of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, company executives and analysts say. Saudi Arabia denies this. Financial market moves show investors are worried about the Khashoggi affair but not nearly as fearful as they were after oil prices began plunging in 2014. But even after normal business ties with the West resume, Khashoggi may cast a shadow over foreign capital flows into Saudi Arabia. The Khashoggi affair could conceivably become the catalyst for a backlash.

Neymar won two La Liga titles and the 2015 Champions League in four years with Barca and formed a lethal partnership with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, departing in July 2017 after the Paris giants exercised his release clause. "No-one on the Barca board has talked about the possibility of bringing back Neymar, right now we can't give an answer because no-one has even mentioned it," Cardoner told radio station SER Catalunya on Friday. Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo said in a front-page story on Wednesday that the player has told Barca he wants to return after becoming disillusioned with life in Paris. "He was the one who left, it would be different if we hadn't believed him and now we wanted to bring him back, but that's not the case," Cardoner added. "If we did want to sign him then the board would have to discuss it but until now no-one has talked about it."

Mohammad Abbas," the 35-year-old fast bowler said on Twitter. Paine said Australia were disappointed to have let Pakistan take control after reducing them to 57-5 in the first innings.
