Neymar: Barcelona officials fly to France for talks with PSG over Neymar transfer

Neymar: Expected to return to Barca after two years at PSG

Neymar's return to Barcelona could take a step closer on Tuesday with officials from Spain travelling to France for talks with Paris Saint-Germain, according to Sky Sports.

The 27-year-old's future in Paris has been uncertain all summer but the La Liga club are stepping up their efforts with less than three weeks to go until the European transfer window shuts.

PSG are unlikely to sanction a sale unless they are able to recoup the £200m the paid Barca for Neymar in 2017.

Neymar has been agitating for a return to Spain all summer and told the Ligue 1 champions he wanted to leave in July.

PSG have tried to convince the Brazil international to stay in the French capital but did not include him in the opening-day Ligue 1 win against Nimes on Sunday.

Real Madrid have also held talks to sign him and head coach Zinedine Zidane was coy when questioned about the possibility on Sunday.

He said: "Neymar is not [in our squad] but until September 2, anything can happen."

Neymar enjoyed four trophy-laden years in Spain with Barca, winning two league titles, a Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup.

He also won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles with PSG, scoring 51 goals in 56 appearances.
