Paris Saint Germain (PSG) forward Neymar is keen to return back to Spanish champions Barcelona during this transfer window but it could be a tricky one for the Catalan giants to seal due to the financial demands involved in a potential transfer.

According to the publication from trusted Spanish news outlet Marca, Barcelona are unlikely to meet the asking price for Neymar.

It was revealed that the deal could be worth a whopping sum of €600m over the next five years including an upfront payment of €250m.

PSG are willing to let Neymar leave since he falls into the category of players that don’t want to stay at Parc des Princes beyond this summer.

Earlier this month, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi called out disinterested players as he told them they can leave the club this summer.

Neymar is a long-term transfer target for Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea and he has been with French giants PSG for only two years following his move from Barcelona but the player is ready to return to Spain after his failed adventure in France till date.

The Barcelona to PSG transfer set the French champions back to the tune of €220m thus making him the most expensive player in the history of world football.
