Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has reportedly agreed a deal in principle to return to Barcelona six years after leaving the Nou Camp for a world-record transfer fee.
According to Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, Neymar has agreed a two-year deal with an option of a further year which would see the Brazilian star pocket over $14.2m net per season as well as performance-related add-ons.

Neymar keen on Barcelona return
It is certain that Neymar would love to return to the Catalan giants but it was always believed that Barca president Joan Laporta was a much bigger advocate of the idea than current head coach Xavi Hernandez- a one-time teammate of the former Brazilian wonderkid.
As reported yesterday, Neymar has received an offer on the table from an unnamed MLS club– now believed to be Los Angeles FC- with a transfer to Barcelona still a long way off completion.
As reported by Alvarez Haya, Neymar still needs to arrange the termination of his contract at PSG with the Parisians expected to hold out for a large fee whilst the Brazilian still has four years to run on his current contract at the Parc Des Princes.
