Transfer: Neymar wants to return to Barcelona

PSG vs Real Madrid TV channel live stream kick-off time date odds and head-to-head

Ernesto Valverde has squashed recent rumours suggesting Neymar could return to Barcelona just one year on from leaving for Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar was said to have left the Catalan giants to PSG in order to step out of the shadow cast by Lionel Messi.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not the Blaugrana's bosses would be prepared to forget Neymar's antics before his world record move.

Yesterday, Catalan sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Neymar, who is now recovering from a broken foot in Brazil, has made contact with his Barcelona teammates asking that how can he plot a move back to Camp Nou.

Neymar joined Barcelona in 2013 before PSG bought him in 2017 for a record 222 million euros.

Mundo Deportivo concedes Neymar´s courting of Barcelona may even be a tactic to justify a move to Real, given the Catalan club are likely to reject any chance to re-sign the 26-year-old. The Brazilian also didn't expect that level of Ligue 1 is so inferior to Spanish top flight. The report states that Neymar apologised to Barcelona's management.

The rumours are surfacing at a time when Neymar has been linked continuously with a move to Barcelona's fierce rivals Real Madrid who have identified the Brazilian as a flawless replacement for an ageing Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday: "Neymar could play in all the clubs because he is very good, like many players".

Neymar missed PSG's last 16 loss to Real on Tuesday after undergoing surgery on a broken foot in Brazil last week.

Neymar will undoubtedly be disappointed in the nature of PSG's Champions League exit and the Parsian club will be hoping that domestic success is enough to convince Neymar to stay put, despite him complaining about a number of things since joining the club - most recently his disappointment with the way close friend Lucas Moura was "forced out" of the club.

Neymar is now recovering from his foot injury.
