Could Neymar really return to Barcelona this summer? Well, reports surrounding the Brazilian leaving PSG have not just grown in recent days, they’ve gone into overdrive.

The Brazilian is on the front page of Mundo Deportivo on Wednesday, and the Catalan newspaper reckon he’s told PSG he wants out.

Neymar’s message to PSG is: “I don’t want to continue here, I want to go home, where I should never have left!” and is splattered all over their front page.

Sport have also gone big on Neymar with a picture of the Brazilian next to a giant ‘Si’ which doesn’t need much translation.

They report that the Barcelona dressing room have said Yes to Neymar coming back to the Camp Nou, while they are not so keen on Antoine Griezmann joining the club.

Marca also report that the Barcelona dressing room “would welcome back the Brazilian with open arms” and “would actively prefer him” to Griezmann.

Over at El Mundo there’s talk of a very confusing deal. They reckon Barcelona will bring in Neymar and send Antoine Griezmann, who they have already agreed a deal with, to PSG. The report also claims that Lionel Messi has asked Barcelona to bring Neymar back.

It doesn’t end there either. TV channel GOL report that Neymar is already house hunting in Barcelona and has been in touch with the owner of the home he lived in previously in the city.

Could this move really happen?
