Neymar Linked With A Shock Return To Barca

Share

A source at Barcelona told Spanish news outlet, Mundo Deportivo, that the Brazilian global regrets his decision to leave for PSG.

The 26-year-old reportedly feels that Ligue 1 is not as competitive as LaLiga, and that PSG's recent exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid, during which Neymar missed the second leg due to injury, has shown that the French giants' project is still far from reaching the required level to become Europe's best.

Neymar has told Barcelona that he wishes to return to Camp Nou.

In late January, media reports said that Neymar would join Real if he helped PSG win the 2017/2018 Champions League.

Many concerns were raised over the summer when Barcelona was forced into a record-breaking transfer deal once the release clause of their Brazilian forward was met. Neymar departing for Paris Saint-Germain was seen as a great loss for Barcelona.

He now believes the Ligue 1 is inferior to La Liga.

Barca, however, is not the only club Neymar is reportedly targeting as a potential way out of PSG.

Sensational claims are being made in Catalonia stating that Neymar Jr has contacted Barcelona FC for a possible return this summer.

Real Madrid have been the club most persistently linked with a move for Neymar, with Zinedine Zidane talking up the striker just this week.

When quizzed about reports suggesting that Neymar is on his way back to Camp Nou, Valverde said: "It seems to be a fantasy and we do not know where it came from or where it will end".

Brazil's team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirmed the news to Brazilian media outlets with Neymar now in Brazil recovering from surgery.

The forward is now recovering from foot injury, sustained in a 3-0 league win over Marseille, in a bid to be fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.
