Is Neymar set for a mega money return to Barcelona?

Have PSG finally had enough of Neymar?

It seems that ever since Neymar made his world record move to Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017, he's been linked with a return back to his former club Barcelona.

The 27 year-olds overriding desire to win the Ballon d'Or was believed to have been the main factor behind his mega money transfer, with him wanting to get out of the shadow of Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou. He won pretty much every honour available in his four years in Spain and despite enjoying two trophy, money laden seasons in the French capital, it appears his time at PSG could now be up.

The Parisians are now in their 8th year under the Qatar Sports Investment (QSI) group, with their purchase of the club taking them to dizzying new heights. They've won everything seemingly at ease domestically but their lack of success in Europe is frustrating the fans and club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Bad luck and defeats can be accepted, but it's the unprofessionalism from a number of their stars that hasn't gone down well with him or manager Thomas Tuchel. The German has a real job on his hands managing all these egos and despite *only* guiding them to the Ligue 1 title last term, he's been given a new deal so the players need to work with him and take his coaching on board.

Al-Khelaifi is in full support of his man and recently sent out a huge warning to his wealthy stars that "celebrity behaviour" will not be tolerated at the Parc des Princes anymore, demanding big changes. There's a number of players this could refer to, namely Adrien Rabiot who looks set to depart on a free transfer this summer, but more so Neymar.

He's gone from a club full of history and traditional in Barcelona, to one that has a celebrity culture in one of Europe's most expensive, vibrant cities. He's been pictured out partying regularly, spending time in Brazil when he's *injured*, he's clashed with teammates, built up a big reputation for diving, controversially showboated and even hit out at fans - so it appears that Al-Khelaifi is definitely referring to his record signing here.

So could they finally be set to move him on? Reports suggest that a blockbuster deal could get over the line this summer..

Potential to be this summers biggest transfer

If there was any possibility of Neymar being able to depart Paris, there'd only be a handful of clubs from around Europe who'd have the finances available to sign him. Ever since leaving Barca, he's been constantly linked with Real Madrid but the rumours have dried up recently, which may suggest that they're not willing to take a chance on him due to his erratic behaviour.

This means his only realistic destination at the moment is a return back to the Camp Nou and despite Barcelona being one of the richest clubs in the world, they may really struggle to finance this deal. They've already shelled out €75m on Frenkie de Jong from Ajax and they're also looking to get deals over the line for his teammate Matthijs de Ligt & Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann - both of which will command huge transfer fees and ridiculous wages.

There's major concerns surrounding each of these potential transfers with Barca needing to get some players off the books before they can even consider a deal. So thrusting the worlds most expensive player into the mix throws in even more doubt that they can get their business over the line.

But according to Globoesporte, it appears that negotiations have began to take place between the two clubs surrounding a potential return to Barcelona...

Their reports indicate that the Catalonian's would be willing to offer €100m along with up to THREE players in Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele, which looks like a very interesting deal on paper.

All three are absolutely superb players when they're fit and firing so if this deal is true, it could prove to be a masterstroke by the French club.

We will know what a fantastic talent Neymar is but his behaviour in Paris is getting out of hand, so if they could re-coup a fair bit of cash and get three players of that magnitude in, it would be definitely be regarded as brilliant business.

Allowing Neymar to move on would show that the club really mean business in their bid to fight against the "celebrity behaviour" that's engulfed the Parc des Princes in recent seasons and despite losing arguably their best player, it could leave them in much better shape.

Bringing in Umtiti, Rakitic and Dembele would significantly strengthen the spine of their side and it seems mad that Barcelona would be willing to let them all go in exchange for a player who cast them aside just two years ago.

But on the flip side, they need to get some big earners off the books if they're to stand a chance of financing these ridiculous deals so who knows - maybe this could happen? But more still need to go out the exit door.

Headlines seem to follow Neymar everywhere and if he was to return to Barcelona, it would be the biggest transfer this summer without a doubt. It looks like we could be in for some saga...
