Barcelona offered chance to re-sign Neymar for £43m this summer

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly offered Barcelona a chance to re-sign Neymar for £43.1million.

The former Barcelona winger completed his £198m switch to Paris five years ago and has since scored a century of goals for the club in only 144 appearances.

However, the Brazilian has yet to win the coveted Champions League crown in France and is no longer the poster boy of PSG, following the meteoric rise of Kylian Mbappe and arrival of Lionel Messi in 2021.

Neymar is not out of contract for another three years but it seems the French giants are keen to cash in on the winger this summer, reportedly offering him around to potential suitors.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, PSG have ‘repeatedly’ handed Barcelona the chance to re-sign Neymar for £43.1m.

The 30-year-old is reportedly willing to exit Paris this summer, but only if it permits him rejoining his former club.

However, with Barcelona entrenched in financial adversity and holding a long transfer wish list including Robert Lewandowski, Bernardo Silva and Raphinha, a deal for Neymar could be very hard to justify in the short-term.

The Catalan club were granted permission to offset a share of their assets last week, including 49.9% of Barcelona Licensing and Merchandising.

Whilst they would have an option to rebuy their stake at a later date, the total sale would bring in approximately €200million.

A second motion was also passed to allow the club to sell 25% of their television income across the next 25 years.
