Neymar Wants A Return To Barcelona And Admits "I Do Not Want To Play More In PSG"

Neymar wants to make a sensational return to Barcelona, just two years after leaving the club to join Paris Saint-Germain.

That's according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, who report that the Brazilian has made his feelings known to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Neymar reportedly said: "I do not want to play more in PSG. I want to go back to my house, where I should never have left."

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to former club Barca in recent weeks, and this latest revelation pours more fuel on a potential transfer.

It isn't just Neymar who is keen on a move.

The Catalan giants are 'seriously looking into' bringing back the winger, according to ESPN, who report that a transfer "could be doable, but it won't be simple."

On top of that, Paris Saint-Germain are willing to sell the player "in exchange for an XXL offer", according to French publication L'Equipe.

PSG president Al-Khelaifi recently called out "celebrity behaviour" within the club, saying his players "are not here to please themselves."

"The players will have to assume their responsibilities even more than before. It must be completely different," he told France Football.

"They will have to do more, work more. They are not there to please themselves.

"And if they do not agree, the doors are open, ciao! I do not want to have any celebrity behaviour anymore."

Neymar has come under fire for his antics in a PSG shirt, both on and off the pitch.

The 27-year-old was criticised last month after he attended Rihanna's fashion party instead of watching Kylian Mbappe win his end-of-season awards.

He also had a tough time with Brazil after being stripped of the captaincy, not to mention his reaction when youth product Weverton, who plays for Cruzeiro's academy team, nutmegged him in training.

Neymar clearly wasn't impressed with his skills and proceeded to pull his shirt, flooring the defender.

Thoughts on the Paris Saint-Germain winger's future?
