Barcelona officials travelling to France for Neymar talks
Neymar’s return to Barcelona could take a step closer on Tuesday with officials from Spain travelling to France for talks with Paris Saint-Germain, according to Sky sources.
The 27-year-old’s future in Paris has been uncertain all summer but the La Liga club are stepping up their efforts with less than three weeks to go until the European transfer window shuts.
PSG are unlikely to sanction a sale unless they are able to recoup the £200m they spent on Neymar in 2017.
Neymar has been agitating for a return to Spain all summer and told the Ligue 1 champions he wanted to leave in July.
PSG have tried to convince the Brazil international to stay in the French capital but did not include him in the opening-day Ligue 1 win against Nimes on Sunday.
He also won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles with PSG, scoring 51 goals in 56 appearances.
The transfer window for Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1 closes at varying times on Monday September 2. Meanwhile, League One, League Two and Scottish clubs can also do deals until September 2.
