Brazil star Neymar has regretted moving to French side Paris Saint-Germain and is nursing a dream of returning to Barcelona.
Neymar had reportedly made moves to rejoin the Camp Nou team but that had been staled by the near-impossibility of a big-money switch.
According to reports in Spain, Neymar, 26, wants to reunite with Argentine star Lionel Messi at the Spanish side.
He is said not to be motivated by playing in the French Ligue 1 with PSG already eight points clear at the zenith of the league log.
Also, the growing influence of teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe has put the Brazilian at the “shadows” in France, a development which has left the Olympic Gold medalist unease.
On the other hand, Barcelona are weighing the option of bringing Neymar back to Spain if gaffer Ernesto Valverde sanctions the move.
