Neymar: PSG star returning to Barcelona hinges on two players amid Real Madrid links

Neymar could leave PSG for a stunning return to Barcelona, two years on from his controversial transfer to the Parc des Princes.

The Samba star has come to regret his decision to leave the Nou Camp in 2017 and, as a result, may be on the move this summer.

Neymar has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, with recent reports suggesting they were still mulling over a transfer.

His preference appears to be a second coming at Barcelona, however, the club he spent four years earlier in his career.

Barcelona are also aiming to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer as they seek a Champions League triumph next season.

And the Telegraph say two players are key to any potential transfer.

It is claimed that Barcelona are looking to move Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho as they seek to broker a transfer.

Neymar will certainly not come cheap. PSG want their £200million back, though could be persuaded to sell for less if a big-name star is involved.

Dembele could be shown the door by Barcelona having failed to live up to expectations during his two years as the club.

The France international’s questionable attitude has regularly seen him clash with manager Ernesto Valverde.

Barcelona were fearful earlier in the season that Dembele was too obsessed with spending time on his PlayStation and the video game Fortnite.

It was even claimed that he had missed training sessions as a result of being too-engrossed in the popular game.

And the Telegraph say Coutinho may be another fall guy.

The Barcelona star, like Dembele, has blown hot and cold ever since his arrival in January 2018.

Barcelona forked out for him because they thought he would be able to replicate the same sensational form he showed at Liverpool.

But that hasn’t been the case.

Rivaldo, meanwhile, believes Barcelona should try and bring Neymar back to Catalonia this summer, saying: “If I could choose one player to sign for Barcelona this summer it would be Neymar.

“The fans already know what he can do, he proved his value to the club last time he was there and he combines nicely with Messi and Suarez.

“He’s also a good alternative to lead the attack when Messi isn’t available.

“Griezmann is a great player but signing him would be more of a gamble, as he’s never played at Barcelona or with Messi and Suarez.”
