Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move to bring Neymar Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar back to Camp Nou this summer
Although Neymar’s move to PSG back in 2017 cost a world record £198million, Barca bosses believe the current climate will dramatically reduce transfer fees and see more clubs trade players instead.
The Catalan giant have a host of top-class players they are prepared to use as leverage to land Neymar, including Antoine Griezmann, Samuel Umtiti and Philippe Coutinho.
Mundo Deportivo claim Neymar is eager to return and has already reached out to some players in the Barca squad who are equally keen on a reunion – but only if the 28-year-old changes his attitude dramatically.
The Brazilian was heavily criticised for the way he left Camp Nou, with PSG depositing his buyout clause, while he made a number of comments in the media that paved the way for his exit.
The Barca players with whom Neymar is still close have made it clear that similar behaviour will not be tolerated, while they also feel he needs to apologise to fans for the nature of his departure three years ago.
GoalBall understands Neymar agreed with the requests and is so desperate to not only re-join Barcelona but is even prepared to take a massive salary cut to seal the move.
