Neymar's €215m Paris Saint Germain release clause revealed

Barcelona insist talk of a Neymar return is premature

Neymar joined Barcelona in 2013 scoring 105 goals and notched up 77 assists in 186 appearances before moving to PSG in the summer of 2017.

The report goes further, stating that if a move doesn't materialise, he will be allowed to leave for €200m in the summer of 2020.

Barcelona vice-president Jordi Cardoner has denied reports that the club are attempting to lure Neymar back to Catalonia after he left them for Paris Saint-Germain little over a year ago.

But the emergence of Kylian Mbappe as a global icon has handed him the same problem at PSG and Neymar has reportedly decided he'd be happier back at Barcelona.

Samuel Umtiti is still ruled out for Barcelona

Neymar won two La Liga titles and the 2015 Champions League in four years with Barca and formed a lethal partnership with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, departing in July 2017 after the Paris giants exercised his release clause.

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.

The likes of Messi were consulted on how they feel if the Brazilian were to come back at the end of the season now it's a strong possibility.

It is unlikely that Paris Saint-Germain will give up on the Brazilian star quite so easily but should the move materialize, it would be the most shocking football return of 2019.
