SUPERSTAR Neymar has been offered back to Barcelona for a cut-price fee but a secret clause in his contract at Paris Saint-Germain could scupper plans for a reunion, according to reports.

PSG are said to be open to selling the Brazilian trickster, and have offered him back to former club Barcelona for just £43million.

Despite the club’s financial problems which see’s them in debts of half a BILLION Euros, the prospect of bringing back one of their former superstars could be too tantalising a proposition to refuse.

This being said, the 30-year-old’s contract at PSG contains a secret clause which could render any potential deal dead in the water.

According to El Chiringuito TV, the attackers contract at PSG has a clause which means his contract can be automatically renewed for an additional year on July 1.

This extension means his contract with the Parisians will run until 2027 if it is fulfilled.

Another hinderance to any deal taking place is Barcelona prioritising a deal for Bayern Munich talisman Robert Lewandowksi.

Barcelona are looking to recruit on the cheap this summer and with Lewandowski expressing a desire to leave along with a contract which expires next summer, the Catalan club are treating his acquisition as a priority.

PSG agreed a contract extension with Neymar last year, an agreement which sees him net £600,000 every week.

Following the agreement of a new bumper deal for Kylian Mbappe which kept him out of the clutches of Real Madrid, the French club would be happy to drop Neymar’s wages from their books.

PSG have offered Neymar out to a number of clubs, with reports indicating Premier League side Newcastle United among the teams in for him.

New sporting director Luis Campos is ringing the changes around the Parc des Princes, and looks set to appoint Christophe Galtier ahead of Zinedine Zidane as Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement.

He is also set to bring in Manchester United linked Vitinha and Lille’s Renato Sanches to revamp the midfield and build the team around Mbappe in a bid to win the elusive Champions League they want.

Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also hinted at Neymar’s exit.

Speaking to Le Parisian, he said: “I expected all of the players to do more than last season. Much more.

“We have to become humble again. We have to change to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls which can change games.

“We have to discipline ourselves, both on and off the pitch. […] Those who want to stay in their comfort zone will stay to one side.

“Some will come and others will go, but these are private negotiations.”

Neymar’s agent Wagner Ribiero refuted claims his client would be leaving: “Despite rumours on his departure, Neymar is only focused on PSG and he wants to win Champions League there.”

The £200million star’s private jet was forced into an emergency landing as he headed back to his native Brazil from Barbados earlier this week.
