The Ligue 1 club and the Brazilian star have an agreement in place that would allow the player to rejoin his Camp Nou former teammates for the start of the 2020/21 season.
Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly agreed to let Neymar return to Barcelona, while Borussia Dortmund have set their asking price for Jadon Sancho. Neymar, 28, has regularly been linked with a return to Camp Nou, and that could be getting a step closer.
Neymar and PSG pact to facilitate return to Barcelona
The Brazilian star has reached an agreement with PSG to facilitate his departure and return to Barça ahead of next season, if, of course, the Catalan club can find the means to make it happen. The pact between Neymar and the Parisians was reached after the attempt last summer by Barça to sign him failed. In return for him staying and giving maximum commitment and involvement until the end of the season, the agreement to leave was made. As it stands, with the return of the Champions League awaited and Ligue 1 already concluded, Neymar has played 22 games, scored 18 goals and provided 10 assists.
Neymar starred across four seasons at the LaLiga club before joining PSG in a world-record €222million ($247m) move in 2017.The Brazilian was recently ordered to repay the Catalan club $7.5million following a dispute over bonuses.
Neymar’s claim that he was owed $49million in bonuses by his old team was dismissed by judge.Neymar has made 22 appearances for PSG this season, scoring 18 goals and providing 10 assists.
