Some transfer rumours never get old and they are brought up during every transfer window. Neymar's return to Barcelona is one of those. Since Neymar left Barca in 2017, the Catalans have failed to find his perfect replacement. PSG dug deep in their pockets to sign the winger. Barcelona used it to buy a bunch of global superstars - Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann to be precise. However, none of these talented players were successful in filling the Brazilian's shoes.

As reported by SPORT and Mundo Deportivo, Neymar remains Barcelona's top priority. Neymar was very close to reuniting with his former side last summer. However, PSG halted the move.

Neymar, in a post-match interview, stated, "It’s hard not to play for four games. Unfortunately, it was not my choice, it came from the club, the doctors. They’re the ones who made the decision, one that I did not like. We’ve had a lot of discussions on that. I wanted to play, I was feeling well but the club were afraid, and in the end, I’m the one suffering.” It now looks as if Neymar has got the perfect reason to leave PSG and join Barcelona again.
