Barcelona are reportedly planning to re-sign Neymar as a replacement for Lionel Messi if the Argentine star departs the club in the near future.

Neymar was linked with a move back to Nou Camp during his conflict with current club Paris Saint-Germain last year. But the cash-strapped Barcelona couldn’t make the offer.

However, PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has since confirmed that talks are ongoing to sign the Brazil forward whose contract at the French side expires in 2022.

However, according to Sport, PSG will still consider selling Neymar for the right price if they cannot agree a new deal with the 28-year-old, and the former Barcelona man is tempted to move back to Catalonia.

Should PSG and Neymar fail to come to an agreement over an extension, the report claims that the French giants will entertain offers of €100m (£89.8m) for the Brazil international, who has amassed 72 goals in 89 games for PSG since his record-breaking €222m (£199.2m) move to the French capital.

As for Messi, the Argentine’s future reportedly hinges on Barca’s new president and the plans going forward at Camp Nou, with talk of a transfer to Manchester City heating up once more.
