Barcelona have reportedly taken the first steps towards re-signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain after holding talks with the Brazilian forward's camp.

Barcelona have reportedly held preliminary talks with Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar over an end-of-season return to Camp Nou.

The Brazil international swapped Barca for PSG in a world-record £198m deal in August 2017 after spending four years in Catalonia.

Speculation regarding Neymar's future has refused to go away over the past 12 months, however, with both Barcelona and bitter rivals Real Madrid supposedly holding an interest in the 26-year-old.

Catalunya Radio reports that the superstar forward's father met with Barca representative Andre Cury in Brazil during the recent winter break to discuss a move.

The two parties are also believed to have met in London two months ago, with Cury playing a crucial role in taking Neymar to the Spanish giants from Santos in 2013.

Israeli agent Pini Zahavi and Alvaro Costa, the son of Barcelona's liaison officer, are also said to be playing a part in pushing through a shock return to Camp Nou.

PSG may be forced into selling one of their prized assets in the summer due to the threat of Financial Fair Play sanctions.
