NEYMAR AGREES ON TRANSFER TO BARCELONA

Brazil’s Neymar reportedly has an agreement in place with Paris Saint-Germain regarding a potential move to Barcelona, which he left three years ago.

The Brazil international turned his back on the Catalan giants back in the summer transfer window of 2017. But, according to UK newspaper, Express, Neymar now wants to return to the Nou Camp at the end of the current campaign.

Barcelona had hoped to sign Neymar a year ago, with Lionel Messi urging the club’s hierarchy to bring the PSG star back to the Nou Camp.

Ultimately that didn’t happen, however, with the Catalan titans instead choosing to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

Now, Barcelona are hoping to secure the return of Neymar when the transfer window reopens with Griezmann struggling to settle at the Nou Camp.

And Spanish newspaper AS say the Samba star has reached an agreement with PSG regarding a potential departure at the end of the season.

It’s claimed the Brazilian reached a pact with the Ligue 1 giants after Barcelona’s failed attempt to snap him up a year ago.

And the 28-year-old has delivered, scoring 18 goals and registering 10 assists from 22 matches across all competitions.

Barcelona are likely to try and re-sign Neymar again at the end of the season but they’ll need to sell players in order to raise funds for the forward.

Philippe Coutinho is one player who could be sold, with the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea all linked with the former Liverpool star.

And Barcelona may also cut Ousmane Dembele loose, with the France international struggling ever since his move from Borussia Dortmund three years ago.

Meanwhile, former Barca president Sandro Rosell has expressed a belief that Neymar is the only player capable of Messi – and must be pursued.
