Neymar 'has a future' at PSG, father says amid transfer rumours

Spanish media: Neymar wants Barcelona return

Al-Khelaifi said Neymar is "very happy, really motivated and enthusiastic about the idea of returning as soon as possible".

"With Neymar, that's life", Coutinho said, according to the Mail.

Neymar's father, who is also the player's agent, says the Brazilian forward has a future at Paris Saint-Germain beyond this summer despite rumours linking his son with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona, per Sebastian Vargas Rozo of Sport. "I hope he (Neymar) can return".

The La Liga leaders welcome the Premier League champions to Camp Nou on Wednesday. Coutinho, who moved to Barcelona from Liverpool during the January transfer window, added to the speculation by claiming it would be great to play with his compatriot at club level. "It would be awesome to have him back".

Brazil have improved massively and are among the favourites for Russian Federation - and Neymar knows that only victory on the global stage would see him become a true legend in his homeland. "Let's not talk about hypothetical situations". The manager was keen to remain focused ahead of his team's Champions League last 16 second-leg encounter against Chelsea on Wednesday.

In response to the reports swirling about that this could be his one and only season in Paris, the club's owners are taking drastic action this week regarding their world-record signing.

Neymar left La Liga giants Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record transfer after the Ligue 1 powerhouse activated the Brazil star's €222million buyout clause in August a year ago.

This is a worry for Brazil fans as well as those of PSG, with Neymar facing a race to be fit for the World Cup, which starts on June 14 in Russian Federation.
