Neymar has sensationally told Barcelona that he wants to return to the Nou Camp – and made his club aware just before Paris Saint-Germain crashed out of the Champions League to Real Madrid.
The Brazilian has been unsettled in the French capital since joining from the La Liga leaders in the summer for a staggering £198million fee.
He has now decided that a move back to Spain is what he wants and has made his former club aware of his interest in a possible return, according to reports in Spain.
However, Mundo Deportivo report that the Brazilian forward opted to inform them of his wishes just before PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Real.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro sealed a 5-2 aggregate win for Zinedine Zidane’s side in their last-16 second leg in Paris on Tuesday.
Reports claim that Neymar misses his former team-mates and admits he was stubborn in trying to come out from Lionel Messi’s shadow. He also didn’t expect the level of Ligue 1 to be so inferior to La Liga.
Neymar continues to recover from an operation to repair a broken metatarsal in Brazil
Neymar is currently recovering from an operation on his foot in Brazil after suffering a broken metatarsal last month.
He has been out of action since picking up the injury to his right foot after finding himself on the receiving end of a bad tackle against Marseille on February 25.
Having had successful surgery in his homeland, Neymar will be assessed by PSG in six weeks to determine when he will return to training.
