A “superagent” who crafted Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain is now preparing an exit and a return to La Liga for the Brazilian star, according to L’Equipe.

Pini Zahavi has close ties to the forward’s family and is gearing up for another megatransfer, making “concrete maneuvers” to help the player move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid, according to the report.

Madrid is a possibility, but the place Zahavi is working on “especially” is Camp Nou. The player’s successful spell at Barça, plus his familiarity with the city and club, and friendships within the locker room, make it an ideal landing spot.

The negotiations so far have not bore fruit but they are still ongoing, says L’Equipe. One possibility mentioned is the idea of including players in the operation to clear out space both in terms of salaries and in the starting XI.

PSG are willing to let the player leave if a giant offer comes through for him, according to the report.
