Neymar wants to return to Barcelona FC

Although our former Brazilian global, Neymar Jnr, only left the Camp Nou last summer, in a world record transfer move, to join Paris Saint-Germain, you get the impression his stay in French football won't be too long a one.

It was quite evident that Neymar wanted to escape Lionel Messi's shadow to make an even bigger name for himself, and thus, traded the sure-shot chance to win major trophies for a possibility to win his first Ballon d'Or. The report states that Neymar apologised to Barcelona's management.

Earlier this week, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed that after travelling to Brazil to receive treatment for his injury, Neymar reportedly contacted Barcelona about a potential way to engineer a move back to the Catalan giants.

The news that Neymar has already had a price put on his transfer and that Real Madrid are already making moves to acquire his services dropped like a bomb in Brazil.

'€400m for Neymar? When Madrid bought me for €72m, it seemed insane, ' said the Real Madrid manager.

"It is a fantasy and we are not going to speak about rumours when we know it would not end here".

The PSG board were convinced that the arrival of the Brazilian will add more to the attack when he links up with striker Edison Cavani but the relationship between the two have not been what the French side expected. As for the 400 million, they paid 220 million [for Neymar] and when they bought me they paid 72.

Now whether Barcelona would be interested in re-signing the 26-year-old remains another matter!

Marca have reported that club owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique are both going to visit Neymar, now recovering in his homeland, over the coming days.
