Champions League: Neymar pauses PSG contract talks, desperate for Barcelona return
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has put contract talks with the club on hold and is keen to return to Barcelona, ARA reports.
The 29-year-old’s current deal with the Ligue 1 champions is due to expire next June.
But it had been thought Neymar was on the verge of signing a new long-term contract in Paris.
Talk of a return to Barca has quietened in recent months, with the Catalan giants believed to be focusing on keeping Lionel Messi and bringing Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland to Camp Nou.
However, it is understood Neymar has put the brakes on renewal talks, as he wants to return to Spain to play alongside Messi.
Messi is now said to be leaning towards extending his stay at Barca rather than leaving on a free transfer amid interest from Manchester City.
