Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar is still optimistic, according to rumors, to secure a return to Barcelona during this summer’s transfer window.
The Brazil International was closely linked to a move to Camp Nou before the 2019-20 season, but the Spanish champions were unable to agree with the Ligue 1 giants.
In addition to the financial effects of the coronavirus outbreak, Barca’s pursuit of Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan had ended the chances of the club re-signing the attacker this summer.
Nevertheless, the 28-year-old has not given up hope of returning to the Catalan giants ahead of the 2020-21 season, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Neymar was again in excellent form for PSG following some injury issues in this term, scoring 18 times and making 10 assists in 22 appearances in all competitions.
It is said that the French champions are keen to hold on to the South American this summer but will be willing to listen to offers in the £156 m areas.
The former Santos youngster will have a contract with Thomas Tuchel ‘s side until June 2022.
