Neymar pushes for PSG divorce but Barcelona ready to wait on transfer

Neymar is desperate to quit Paris Saint-Germain after growing tired of the club’s failures in the Champions League – and has no intention of returning to France this summer.

The Brazilian superstar left Barcelona for the French giants back in 2017, in a world record-breaking £189million switch, but wants a return to Spain.

Despite winning back-to-back league titles in France, the 27-year-old forward is unhappy at PSG and has made clear his desire to seek pastures new.

And a detailed report by Sport on Tuesday has claimed just how desperate Neymar is to quit the club ahead of next season.

The front cover of Tuesday’s edition of the Spanish daily claims that the former Brazil captain has told the club that he is not ‘comfortable’ there and is ‘fed up’ in the French capital.

It is claimed that Neymar told club chiefs last month of his desire to see through his ‘divorce’ with the club and he is hopeful that they will meet his demands.

The former Santos star wanted to quit after just one season last summer but the club refused to part ways with the most expensive player in history.

However Neymar’s mood in Paris hasn’t improved after another European disappointment. The French club were knocked out by Manchester United in the last-16 of the Champions League last season.

It is also reported that Neymar regrets leaving Barcelona, having won two league titles and the Champions League in four seasons at the Nou Camp.

Barca are seriously considering a swoop for their former star but do not want to upset PSG, and will only make a move once they know it would be welcome in Paris.

They are holding off for now but remain in the hunt for the forward as they prepare for a squad overhaul following a similarly disappointing showing in Europe.

Another damning claim suggests that Neymar is ‘absolutely unmotivated’ to begin the season with PSG and, despite the club willing to offer him an improved contract, his mind is made up.
