Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar has been linked with a return to Barcelona despite leaving the Camp Nou for a world record fee of £198million in 2017.

It is understood that the 27-year-old felt he was under the shadow of Barca's star man Lionel Messi and wants a shot at the Ballon d'Or.

And the French club offered him the opportunity to reign supreme and fulfill his footballing ambitions at Parc Des Princes.

But the arrival of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco has seemingly changed the outlook, as the Frenchman has gone from strength to strength becoming the club's talisman in Neymar's place.

And after just two seasons the Brazilian has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, Barcelona and possibly Manchester United.

Neymar was in action for the Selecao in their international friendly against Uruguay and scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot.

And after the match, the ex-Santos striker was asked about his possible return to his former club by Spanish media outfit Marca.

He allegedly smiled at the journalist without uttering a word and reports adds that Barcelona sporting director Pep Segura has refused to rule out a move for the forward in two recent interviews.
