Barcelona's pursuit of Neymar this summer is reportedly being driven by Lionel Messi's desire to see his former teammate return to Camp Nou.
Negotiations have proven to be complicated due to PSG's £200m asking price, which Barca have so far unsuccessfully tried to navigate by offering players as part of the package.
French outlet Le Parisien claims that their persistence in the pursuit of the 27-year-old is designed to satisfy Messi, who is keen to see Neymar return to Catalunya.
The report goes on to say that Barcelona will return with a fresh bid next week but remain some way away from PSG's valuation of the Brazilian international.
Neymar spent four years at Barcelona between 2013 and 2017, scoring 105 goals in 186 games.body check tags ::
