Confidants: Unhappy Neymar WILL return to Barcelona

Paris Saint Germain forward Neymar

A report by Esporte Interativo suggested that Neymar Santos Sr. and his lawyer are in Barcelona to negotiate the spectacular return of his son.

The ex-Liverpool man could play a vital role in helping Barcelona sign Neymar and he is said to be aware he has no future at the club.

Neymar, 27, has been linked with a sensational return to Spain two years after a £198m world-record move to the French capital - one former Brazil internationals Rivaldo and Edmilson have labelled a "mistake".

With Antoine Griezmann joining and Neymar also potentially returning to the Nou Camp, it is a decision that makes sense.

"PSG want Coutinho and have been weighing up [a move] for a while", sources at the Catalan club told ESPN FC.

But the La Liga giants can't afford to pay as much and are hoping to get the asking price down to £116m by including a couple of their players in the deal.

Eric Frosio, L'Equipe's Brazilian correspondent, said: "Neymar Sr met with André Curry, Barcelona's representative in Brazil, last Saturday in São Paulo". He helped the hosts beat Argentina on Tuesday to reach the final.

So far, everything has been handled by a number of intermediaries who are working on the futures of both Neymar and Coutinho.

For now, though, Neymar's entourage remains coy on giving any signs away that a Barcelona move could be on the cards. Coach Ernesto Valverde is keen to keep him at the club beyond the end of the transfer window.

However, a new angle to the transfer reveals that there will be other players involved in the deal, presumably making the swap from Barcelona to Atletico Madrid. As per reports, Ousmane Dembélé, Ivan Rakitic, Malcom, and Samuel Umtiti will also be the next names in the player sales.
