Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar will have to take a massive pay cut for him to join Spanish champions Barcelona this summer according to popular media portal Mundo Deportivo.

It was revealed that Neymar was given an upgrade in salary upon his move from Barcelona to PSG two years ago.

Neymar was on a yearly salary of €22m at Barcelona before his move to PSG where he earns €36m on a yearly basis.

The 27-year-old signed for PSG after the French Ligue 1 giants activated the €222m release clause in his then contract with Barcelona.

The PSG transfer made him the most expensive player in the history of world football till date.

Neymar has already told senior PSG officials that he wants to leave the club for Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona this summer.

According to him, he shouldn’t have left Barcelona in the first place.

Barcelona will have to break their transfer record to re-sign Neymar who scored 105 goals in 186 appearances for the Blaugrana during his four-year spell at the club.

The record is currently held by Philippe Coutinho who joined Barcelona from newly crowned European champions Liverpool in January 2018 in a deal believed to be around £142m including add-ons.
