As we've posted previously on Signables, it's looking more and more likely Neymar is in his last season with PSG. Now, the latest reports out of Spain are taking things to a new level. 

 

According to the outlet SPORT, the Brazilian superstar has turned down PSG's latest contract extension offer and has made it clear to his agents he's fully locked in on a return to Barcelona. 

Per SPORT, Lionel Messi is pushing for Barcelona to bring Neymar back in Catalonia. The two were teammates before for Barca, winning the Champions League title in 2015. 

 

With Messi having leverage in his contract talks, he's letting the front office know how serious he is in getting his old partner back with him on the pitch. The two working together is simply magic, no one denies that. 

 

Neymar and Barcelona were hoping to reunite last summer, but talks between PSG and Barca stalled. Neymar returned to Paris, but reportedly was all ready to go back to Spain and was disappointed things didn't get done. 

 

Now, he's doing everything he can to make sure things don't fall through this time around. While it will be a blow for Paris Saint-Germain to lose him, all signs are pointing to Neymar's exit from the Ligue 1 powers in the coming months.
