According to the Daily Mirror, Neymar has had an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi which allows the forward to leave the club at the end of the season for €220 million (£193 million).

He moved to pastures new with the intention of catapulting himself onto the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but has failed to do that with a string of disappointing displays on the big stage.

"I wish Real Madrid and Barcelona the best of luck in their attempt to bring Neymar away from here, ' he said after his side's 5-0 win over Amiens at the weekend".

If a club can stump up €215m then they can sign Neymar - but only in the summer of 2020 and not before.

"It's a smaller squad because we have B team players who can make the first team".

But the president of the Spanish giants, Josep Maria Bartomeu, insists a return is wide off the mark.

The paper says that the club's stars, including Lionel Messi, would welcome the Brazilian back into the fold, despite his acrimonious departure.

Neymar Jr's surprise return to Camp Nou is getting closer to materializing as Barcelona are reportedly set to meet the Brazilian's staggering €220m release clause.

PSG defender Marquinhos has dismissed LaLiga claims of tempting back Neymar.

He suggested that Barcelona would not be able to put together enough cash together to sign Neymar, even if they sold Ousmane Dembélé.
