Brazilian Neymar’s representatives have been making ‘constant calls’ to his former club about a potential return to Nou Camp.
Neymar left Barcelona to join Paris Saint-Germain during the summer of 2017 in a world record fee for a whopping 220 million deal. He could return to his old club for the same transfer fee if the club decides to bring the Brazilian back.
But, the way he left the Spanish outfit could prove to be tricky for Neymar. He engineered a move to the reigning Ligue 1 Champions and could do the same to get his back move to Catalonia, according to AS.
The Spanish publication AS quoted that
“When he comes to Barcelona, which is usually, he always ends up visiting the dressing room.
“It’s a shame, because here he had everything, but ended up forcing his departure. We should see how the environment would react (to his return).”
The rumours might crumble up, but the move is more likely to happen in the summer than in the winter transfer window.
There were various reports that Barcelona could bring back their old man for 215 million Euros at the end of the season.
Besides, it is also believed that the Brazilian has an agreement with PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi to let him leave at the end of the season should any club match the same price.

Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo added more fire to the fuel by “praying” that the Brazilian superstar will make a sensational return to the Spanish outfit in the upcoming summer while speaking to Mundo Deportivo.
“I personally am praying for him to come because he is a superstar, it is indisputable. I think that the more great players the team has, the better.”
Arthur: I’m praying Neymar comes to Barcelona 🙏

“Personally, I’m doing a lot of work to get him back, but he has his life, he knows what he’s doing and I do not know how deep those negotiations are, if there are options for him to come or not.
“But he is a personal friend and a professional that I admire a lot and would be very happy if he could come back here.”
Paris Saint-Germain’s attackers have the same goals per game stats –
0.60: Edison Cavani (Napoli, Paris) – 33 goals in 55 games
0.60: Neymar (Barcelona, Paris) – 30 goals in 50 games
0.60: Kylian Mbappé (Monaco, Paris) – 12 goals in 20 games

Spanish publication Sport confirmed that there is a clause inserted in Neymar’s contract which will see him move to another club should anybody trigger 215 million Euros in 2020.
If Neymar wants to leave the club before that specific period of time, the interested club must negotiate in a ‘friendly manner’ with PSG, for a higher fee.
The 26-year-old also attracts interest from Barcelona’s fierce rivals Real Madrid whom they are seeing as a potential replacement to Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Neymar has his eyes set on a return to Barcelona.
