Neymar

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar is a top transfer target for Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona this summer.

Barcelona are keen to seal a return for the Brazilian international star two years after he left the club for PSG in a world-record deal.

The Manchester United target has already agreed on personal terms with Barcelona with a yearly salary of €24m reported to be the agreement between the player and the Spanish champions.

According to Spanish media outlet Marca, Barcelona want Neymar for two reasons.

The first reason is because of the Barcelona players who have demanded the return of the former Santos player two years after leaving in controversial circumstances.

Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi is said to have been pushing for Neymar to return to the Nou Camp this summer.

Barcelona also want another option in their attackers due to the over-reliance on the duo of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele have not been able to replace Neymar in the Barcelona attack since the Brazilian left the club in 2017.

Neymar signed for PSG two years ago after his £198m (€220m) release clause was activated by the French Ligue 1 giants.

He has scored 51 goals in 58 appearances for PSG in two seasons.
