Neymar angrily denies reports that he is angling for a return back to Barcelona, less than two years after leaving the club to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has said that he is 'angry with the lies' that suggest he is after a return to Barcelona.

The Brazil international, who was absent from PSG's squad for Saturday's comfortable 3-0 Ligue 1 win over Amiens, has had to contend with fresh speculation regarding his future over the past couple of days.

Spanish outlet El Mundo reported on Thursday that the 26-year-old is angling for a move back to Camp Nou, less than two years after departing for the Parisians in a record £198m transfer.

Neymar is alleged to have contacted Barca officials on five occasions to discuss a reunion, which the 26-year-old's father has since described as "fake news".

The player has now echoed these thoughts, responding to the rumours by saying: "I'm looking at fake calls and fake news, when I'm angry with lies, when false friends come to talk to me and I put on the face that I do not know anything."

PSG may be forced to cash in on one of Neymar or Kylian Mbappe if they are hit with Financial Fair Play sanctions later this year.
