Barca to pay Neymar’s 220m release clause


Such has been the change of curcumstances that it now appears Neymar could return to former side Barcelona, something which seemed impossible just a matter of mere months ago.

The Catalan giants sold the forward to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, but the Brazil global has frequently been linked with an exit from the Ligue 1 side.

He moved to pastures new with the intention of catapulting himself onto the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but has failed to do that with a string of disappointing displays on the big stage.

Now, according to Spanish paper SPORT, Neymar's release clause has been revealed.

He suggested that Barcelona would not be able to put together enough cash together to sign Neymar, even if they sold Ousmane Dembélé.

The clause has a similar value to the price PSG paid for him (222 million euros): he can leave the club next summer for 220 million euros.

Despite the Brazilian's move been a surprising one at the time there have been signs that he misses life in Catalonia, namely his frequent visits to Barca's training ground and the fact that he misses the likes of close friend Leo Messi.

Neymar also reportedly misses the relationship he shared with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, when the three players combined to become the most risky attacking trio in Spain.

But the emergence of Kylian Mbappe as a global icon has handed him the same problem at PSG and Neymar has reportedly decided he'd be happier back at Barcelona.
