Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr has started looking for property in Barcelona ahead of a potential transfer, according to reports. The 27-year-old Brazilian has been tipped to return to Catalonia this summer following his two-year stint playing in the French Ligue 1.
After leaving the Blaugrana and Lionel Messi to curve a legacy for himself elsewhere, Neymar is believed to be homesick and is keen on returning to Spain. Having made his intentions clear to Paris Saint-Germain, the club's chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently hinted at the player's potential sale.
According to the president of the Parc des Princes outfit, his side will no more tolerate "superstar behaviour" and, as a result, is willing to part ways with any player who fancies a move away.
Now, with the prospect of a transfer on the cards, Spanish publication El Mundo claims that Lionel Messi has informed the Barcelona hierarchy to ditch the idea of recruiting Antoine Griezmann. Instead, the Argentine superstar wants the club to go all-out for Neymar Jr although the deal could be hard to broker.
In the latest development, Spanish television channel Gol stated (via Sport) on Wednesday that the PSG forward is already looking to buy a house in Barcelona. According to the report, the former Blaugrana winger hopes to end up at the same place he used to stay during his first spell.
