French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have confirmed the interest of Barcelona in star player Neymar.
According to Sky Sports News, Barcelona have contacted PSG over the possibility of signing Neymar this summer.
The Barcelona interest was revealed by the PSG sporting director Leonardo.
Brazilian footballer turned administrator returned to PSG this summer after six years.
He was the PSG sporting director at the start of the project at the club under the guidance of the new owners.
Leonardo was at the club for two years between 2011 and 2013.

He revealed that Barcelona have contacted the French giants over long-term Chelsea target Neymar.
PSG, however, have reservations about Barcelona and whether the Spanish champions have the funds to pull off a deal for Neymar who’s keen to leave the French capital club this summer.
Neymar has refused to return to training in an attempt to force a move away from the club this summer after two years.
He wants to return to Barcelona two years after he left the club for PSG in a controversial manner.
Neymar is the most expensive player in world football as a result of that transfer from Barcelona to PSG in 2017.
