FC Barcelona want to ensure that the Neymar they are getting is the brilliant star they remember and not the sometimes-jaded version that played for Paris Saint-Germain last season, so they want to make his contract be based more on bonuses than before, according to Mundo Deportivo.

If Neymar returns to Barcelona, it will be a huge investment for the Catalan club, and it’s no surprise they want guarantees that he will be worth the money. According to the report, the club’s ideal contract will be based on performance bonuses to motivate Neymar to give his best.

Reports in the media continue to say that the Brazilian is privately pushing for a move out of PSG, and that the French club has shown a certain degree of openness to a potential deal. The latest rumors say Barcelona want him to take his plea from the private sphere to the public level in order to force a move. Not just that, but that Neymar himself has signaled he is willing to take that step should it be necessary.
