Brazilian international star Neymar has dominated the football world in the past weeks due to his desire to return to Spanish champions Barcelona this summer.

The Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker had earlier left Barcelona for Paris two years ago in a controversial manner but the former Santos player is ready to return to the Nou Camp after coming to the realisation that he should have stayed at Barcelona.

The Spanish champions will have to fund his return to the club having already committed money to the transfer of Antoine Griezmann who’s expected to leave Atletico Madrid this summer.

According to the publication from the Daily Mail, Barcelona will have to sell former Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho to fund the transfer for Neymar.

It was revealed that Barcelona might need to sell both Coutinho and Dembele to secure the funds needed for the Neymar transfer.

Brazilian national team player Philippe Coutinho has not had the best of times at Barcelona following his big money move to the club last year.

The former Liverpool player has been attracting the interest of clubs in Europe as he might leave Barcelona this summer.

French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and the Premier League trio of Chelsea, Manchester United and former club Liverpool have all been linked with Coutinho.
