Big Progress In Neymar's Potential Barca Move?

Neymar was once again the talking point over the weekend after Kylian Mbappe appeared to push him out of a Paris Saint-Germain team photo, but there has also seemingly been movement on his potential return to FC Barcelona.

The Brazilian superstar was suspended for Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 win over Rennes in the French Super Cup – also known as the Trophee des Champions – on Saturday, but joined his teammates after the final whistle for the celebrations.

However, Mbappe appeared to push Neymar out of a team photo on the pitch, as can be seen in a video that went viral on social media.

PSG and Barcelona are understood to still be negotiating a return to the Camp Nou for Neymar, and it could happen via a loan deal with an option to buy, according to Sport.

The Spanish publication has claimed that an agreement could be reached as early as this week, with Neymar's representatives growing confident a deal could be struck in this window.

Les Parisiens are said to be reluctant to let the superstar rejoin the Blaugrana, and insisted on a cash deal to recoup as much of the €222 million (R3.6 billion) world-record fee they paid for him in 2017.

They would prefer to sell the player to other clubs over Barca, but none seem interested in putting together the whopping package required to sign Neymar.

In the meantime, the Spanish giants have also upped the ante and are now reportedly negotiating directly with the French club after initial talks took place via intermediaries.

The Blaugrana bosses have apparently made it clear they are not in a position to pay huge fees in this window, and it seems the two clubs could now settle on a loan deal with an option to buy.

It has been claimed that Neymar has already agreed to a pay cut to rejoin Barcelona, and his entourage is understood to be in Paris waiting for things to progress. PSG, meanwhile, want any deal completed before 11 August, according to Sport.

Do you think PSG should force Neymar to stay instead of agreeing to an initial loan deal? Have your say in the comments section below.
