And the 29-year-old is also said to have informed his former employer Barca of his willingness to return to Spain.

The stance marks a dramatic U-turn following reports last month that Neymar was closing in on a new mega-money PSG contract.

The forward was said to be is in the final stages of agreeing terms on a new five-year deal to keep him in France until 2026.

That itself came amid stories that Neymar could be set for a stunning exit this summer with his current contract expiring in 2022.

The PSG star, who is already the top earner in Ligue 1 on £607,000-a-week, would be in line for further Champions League-related bonuses.

His new pay packet is unlikely to see him overtake Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, who are the two top earners in European football.

The latter meanwhile has reportedly issued Barcelona president Joan Laporta with a number of demands in order to sign a new deal.

Messi – who handed in a transfer request last year before agreeing to see out his contract – is set to become a free agent in the summer.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner where he would reunite with Pep Guardiola.

And Neymar’s PSG have also been credited with an interest, with the Ligue 1 side banning their squad from talking about the potential transfer.
