Barcelona 'make contact with PSG over sensational Neymar transfer return' as Brazilian holds contract extension talks05/01/2021
BARCELONA have reportedly made initial contact to sensationally bring Neymar back to the Camp Nou from Paris Saint-Germain.
Spanish news outlet RAC1, as cited by SPORT, claim the LaLiga giants have identified the Brazilian as their number one target over Erling Haaland.
The report adds that Neymar is desperate to return to Barca and would not put any strict financial demands on the club – who are £1billion in debt.
The 29-year-old has just one year left on his £600,000-a-week contract and is yet to agree an extension with PSG.
If he fails to agree new terms then the French champions would be forced to either cash in this summer or risk losing him on a free next season.
However, for their part, PSG have insisted that Neymar is not for sale and are reportedly confident the forward will sign a new contract.
The Brazil international has even publicly admitted himself that he is much happier in Paris and has almost committed his future in Ligue 1.
On the eve of the Champions League first-leg defeat to Manchester City, Neymar told RMC Sport: "My extension? Everything is almost settled.
"You know, we're in discussions with PSG… We're not in a hurry. I feel comfortable.
"I feel really happy here."

Neymar could also be reunited with his former MSN teammate in France with PSG credited with an interest in landing the Argentine this summer.
