Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is reportedly set to open legal proceedings as he looks to force a move back to Barcelona.
The Brazilian was heavily linked with a move to the Catalan giants last summer but a deal failed to materialise and he subsequently had to stay with the French club who bought him in 2017.
Sport now reports that Neymar has instructed his legal team to investigate potential exit routes from the club that would allow him to move back to Barcelona in the summer.
The former Santos man will reach the end of his 'protected period' with PSG at the end of this season, enabling him to open talks with other clubs as he is effectively in a position to buy himself out of his current contract.
Since making the switch to the Parc des Prince, Neymar has scored 60 goals in 70 appearances across all competitions for the Parisians.
