Andres Iniesta: Difficult To See Neymar Returning To Barcelona

The latest of which came on Thursday night.

The Spanish press seem to think that something could be put in place, though, with El Mundo claiming that Neymar is desperate for the Blaugrana to snap him up.

The Brazil star's goal - his first since the 5-1 crushing of Real Madrid in October - gave the holders reason for optimism ahead of next week's return leg, having fallen two goals behind in the opening 18 minutes at Ciutat de Valencia.

In every call, Neymar's father is said to admit that his son "was wrong to sign for the PSG" and that he is 'disappointed and very sorry'.

If the reports really are "fake news", then Neymar appears destined to remain in France for the foreseeable future.

The story also suggests that Liverpool FC could benefit financially from any deal in which Coutinho leaves Camp Nou - making a move to Old Trafford even more unlikely.

However, there have been frequent reports about Neymar being unhappy in France and according to El Mundo, the Brazil global is angling for a return to the Catalan giants.

Catalunya Radio have reported that club representative Andre Cury - who played a key role in Barca's signing of Neymar from Santos in 2013 - has met with Neymar and his team as interest around a potential return for a player who left in 2017 gathers pace.

Iniesta has revealed that he can not imagine him returning but hinted that he would like to see it happen.

"Personally, I see it hard for him to return, but in football they have seen a hundred thousand things".

"If he came back, I've always said for years that he's now one of the best players in the world".
