Barcelona willing to meet Neymar's €220m release clause

Neymar wants Barcelona return because of Kylian Mbappe, report claims

The Brazilian has made an impressive start to the season, scoring a hat-trick in PSG's 6-1 thrashing of Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League earlier this month.

It has been claimed that Brazil superstar Neymar, who controversially quit FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, would be open to returning to the Catalan giants.

Mundo Deportivo on Wednesday reported that the Paris Saint-Germain forward is keen on making a return to his former club in Spain.

Neymar has spent plenty of time with his former teammates since leaving past year and maintains strong relationships with the likes of Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique. Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic were also some of Neymar's close acquaintances and he still considers Barcelona as "his club".

A separate Mundo Deportivo cover story this week claimed that a Barca return for Neymar was "not impossible" and Spanish radio added that president Josep Maria Bartomeu has sounded out the club's hierarchy about a sensational move.

Barcelona have reportedly indicated that they are ready to secure a reunion with Neymar in the summer.

The Brazilian only completed his world record switch to the French champions from Barcelona just over a year ago but is now said to be eyeing a move back to the Nou Camp.

Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco weeks after Neymar's arrival.

Real Madrid are believed to still want to sign the forward, although his PSG teammate, Kylian Mbappe, is also said to be on their radar.
