Neymar Linked With A Shock Return To Barca

Neymar Linked With A Shock Return To FC Barcelona

Brazilian superstar Neymar left FC Barcelona for a world record fee of €222 million seemingly in order to step out of Lionel Messi's shadow, but new reports suggest he wants to return to the Camp Nou.

Neymar essentially forced his way out of the club by handing in a transfer request, with Barca eventually letting him go after PSG activated his €222 million release clause.

His departure left a bitter taste in the Catalan giants' mouths, but Neymar apparently wanted to attain Messi's status at the French club, and was hoping being the main star at another club would elevate his chances of lifting the Ballon d'Or.

However, despite scoring 29 goals and assisting another 19 strikes in just 30 appearances so far this season, Mundo Deportivo has suggest that Neymar has sent messages to former teammates and club representatives saying he would be prepared to return.

The 26-year-old reportedly feels that Ligue 1 is not as competitive as LaLiga, and that PSG’s recent exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid, during which Neymar missed the second leg due to injury, has shown that the French giants' project is still far from reaching the required level to become Europe's best.

Neymar reportedly sent messages to Barca players he considers close friends stating that he could envisage a return to the Camp Nou in 2019.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not the Blaugrana's bosses would be prepared to forget Neymar's antics before his world record move. There is also still a pending court case over outstanding bonus payments between the two parties.

Another factor that could play a role is that Neymar has been linked with a move to Barca's bitter rivals Los Blancos, and his wish to return to the Blaugrana could be seen as a smokescreen along the lines of "my priority is Barca but if you don't want me, I'll join your bitter rivals".

Do you think Barca should consider re-signing Neymar? Have your say in the comments section below.

Neymar is very impatient and over jealous at a man (Messi) who try to make him great. Even quarter finals in champions league he will not play once it is PSG. As for me let him play for PSG for two more seasons then he will learn lesson.

Those who are saying that "Barça" needs Neymar, they must be high on NYAOPE. Barça is playing brilliant football in the ABSENCE OF This overrated Neymar boy. We are still unbeaten in the league because of his absence.

He will always be the 2nd or 3rd or etcetera best but not number 1. Barça(Messi), Madrid(Ronaldo), PSG (Cavani), Liverpool(Salah), Man City(Aguero and Sterling ), Chelsea (Hazard and Morata)......the list is just endless. ....

I wish Barca could reject that and he joins Madrid because I want to see what Neymar Jr think he can do!
