Neymar has sensationally told Barcelona that he wants to return to the Nou Camp and made them aware of his desire just before Paris Saint-Germain crashed out of the Champions League to Real Madrid.
The Brazilian has been unsettled in the French capital since joining from the La Liga leaders in the summer for a staggering £198million fee.
He has now decided that a move back to Spain is what he wants and has made his former club aware of his interest in a possible return.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the Brazilian forward opted to inform them of his interest just before PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Los Blancos.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro sealed a 5-2 aggregate win for Zinedine Zidane’s side in their last-16 second leg in Paris on Tuesday.
Reports claim that Neymar misses his former team-mates and admits he was stubborn in trying to come out from Lionel Messi’s shadow. He also didn’t expect the level of Ligue 1 to be so inferior to La Liga.
