Rumors of a Barcelona return for Neymar are hotting up once again with the latest update claiming the Spanish champions will offer €100m plus a player for the Brazilian.

Globo Esporte report that negotiations are already well underway and Neymar could be back at the Camp Nou in time for the start of the new season.

Apparently, Barcelona will hand over a big bag of cash and might also send a player or two PSG’s way. The names mentioned are Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Rakitic.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is said to be leading the talks, although the player wants the move and he’s still friendly with his former team-mates.

It still remains to be seen if Neymar will actually be on the move this summer, but there definitely seems to have been a change in stance from PSG recently.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has given an interview to France Football telling players he wants an end to their “superstar behaviour” or “the doors are open.”

Other reports have suggested Neymar is looking for a way out and does not want to renew his contract and that super agent Pini Zahavi is working on bringing him back to Spain.
