Paris Saint Germain (PSG) forward Neymar is reportedly interested in a move back to Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.

This is according to Spanish news outlet Sport which claimed that the Brazilian international star wants to return to Barcelona after just two years in France.

Neymar became a Barcelona player in 2013 after joining the club from Brazilian Serie A club Santos and he spent four years at the Nou Camp before moving to French champions PSG.

He scored 68 goals in 123 Spanish La Liga games for Barcelona during his four-year spell at the club.

While he was at Barcelona, Neymar formed a potent attacking trio at the club with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

The attacking trident was known as MSN before the Brazilian joined PSG in a world-record deal.

PSG activated the £198m (€220m) release clause in his Barcelona contract to secure his signing at the start of last season.

Neymar has not had the best of two years at PSG amidst suggestions that he could leave the club this summer.

Premier League giants Manchester United have always been long-term admirers of Neymar as well as rivals Chelsea but Barcelona and reigning European champions Real Madrid are the front-runners for his signature.
