Neymar has an agreement to leave Paris Saint-Germain next summer
Neymar is reportedly regretting leaving Barcelona
Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain had many questioning his ambitions as a footballer. Did he want to be part of an all-conquering team, playing alongside the best player of all time, or did he place winning the Ballon d'Or higher up his list of priorities? His decision to leave Barcelona for PSG would suggest the latter, but the Brazilian is now regretting his decision, according to reports.
Having left Barça to escape Lionel Messi's shadow, Neymar has found himself playing second fiddle to the 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappé, which has frustrated him and led him to ask for a move away from Paris.
The Ligue 1 champions have reportedly now agreed a deal with their world record signing, allowing him to leave the club next summer as long as they recoup the fee they paid for him just over a year ago.
Reports yesterday suggested that Neymar had been offering himself to Barcelona, dropping hints that he wishes to return to the Catalan giants, but Mundo Deportivo's Francesc Aguilar today reported that a return to Barça would be impossible.
He suggested that Barcelona would not be able to put together enough cash together to sign Neymar, even if they sold Ousmane Dembélé.
Viendo el dinero que tiene preparado Florentino para la 'operación Neymar', ¿de dónde sacaría el Barça esa fortuna? No basta con traspasar a Dembélé. Hoy por hoy, Neymar es imposible para el Barça. Decir lo contrario es vender mucho humo.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, have put aside money for "operation Neymar", and that the Santiago Bernabeu is a much more likely destination for Neymar.
It has felt inevitable for a while now that Neymar would end up donning the famous all white kit, but now it seems like a sensible move for all parties as well.
Madrid are struggling to adapt playing without Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in the summer after nine prolific years with Madrid. They have not scored in a month and recently appointed Julen Lopetegui is already under immense pressure.
Neymar fill the vacancy left by Ronaldo and once again be the focal point of his team's attack, which is seemingly so important to it.
