La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 25/06/2019

Barcelona have agreed on a five-year deal with Neymar as the Brazilian is edging closer to a sensational return to the Nou Camp. 

The 27-year-old forward became the world's most expensive player in 2017 when he moves from La Liga Champions to join PSG for £198million but former Santos man is desperate to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer and has reportedly told the Ligue 1 club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wants to return to Catalan.

According to Sport claims that there is a verbal agreement after Barcelona club president Josep Maria Bartomeu offer was immediately accepted by Neymar without hesitation but the report says that the Brazil international salary will be drastically reduced.

Neymar is currently out with an ankle injury that prevented his participation in the Copa America this summer spent four years at Camp Nou, winning the Champions League in 2015 and two La Liga titles and he had formed a brilliant attacking trio alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Any return for Neymar would likely require Barcelona to raise funds through sales with Antoine Griezmann is expected to join from Atletico Madrid for €120 million while Frenkie de Jong has already signed for €75 million from Ajax.
