- Neymar is still bent on joining Barcelona despite failed attempts last summer
- The PSG striker has reportedly told teammates he wants to rejoin his former club
- PSG are one of the favourites to win this season's Champions League tournament
Neymar has revealed to his teammates that he wants to leave and rejoin Barcelona this summer, reports in Spain claim.
The Paris Saint-Germain star who left the Camp Nou for a world record fee of £197million in 2017 is seeking for a return to his former club.
Barcelona made attempts to re-sign the Brazilian attacker last summer despite adding Ivan Rakitic, Jean-Clair Todibo and Ousmane Dembele plus £100m, but it did not materialize.
But according to Spanish news media out Mundo Deportivo, Neymar and Barca are bent on reuniting at the Camp Nou at all cost.
It is understood the former Santos star is open to a move back to La Liga after telling his teammates he believes the deal would go over the line this summer.
The 28-year-old has consistently been in close contact with strike partner Kylian Mbappe during the lockdown.
PSG wanted £180m in cash for Neymar last summer but reports claim the French would accept an offer close to £135m before his contract expires in 2022.
Reports claim Neymar wants to leave Parc des Princes on a clean note and has his sights on winning the Champions League before joining Lionel Messi in Barcelona.
It is understood that Neymar wants to sign off by helping the Parisians win their first European competition which would help his move back to Spain smooth.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Neymar's name was mistakenly added to low-paid workers aiming to get funds from the government amid the global pandemic, UOL reports.
The case has now been identified as identity theft where the Paris Saint-Germain's star's name, date of birth and his personal identification number was included among 600 workers aiming to get welfare payment from the federal government.
These workers are those whose jobs and income have been put on hold for the past three months during the lockdown period.
