While rumors claiming Neymar yearns for a return to Barcelona aren't new, a recent report claims to know the extent he has gone to in order to play for the Blaugrana once more.
The Brazilian has denied these rumors before, labeling them as "fake news" while insisting he is happy at PSG. Nonetheless, it hasn't stopped, with the latest accusing the Selecao ace of calling the Spanish Primera Division champion numerous times in an attempt to seal a return.
Neymar has reportedly called the Camp Nou side five times seeking a second spell alongside Messi and Co. Furthermore, El Mundo (via Marca) claims that the player's father has made direct contact with Josep Maria Bartomeu, pleading with the Barcelona president to end his misery in Paris.

It is believed that the 26-year-old regrets moving to Ligue 1. The former Santos ace's switch to France has not gone according to plan despite winning the domestic treble in his debut season, as he wasn't able to win the Champions League and fell further behind in his search for his first Ballon d'Or triumph.
However, returning to Barcelona won't be easy. There have been reports suggesting the Blaugrana is ready to cash in on the struggling Philippe Coutinho so as to raise funds for a Neymar bid, but whether PSG would sell one of their best players before achieving European success remains doubtful.
The club's FFP troubles might force Les Parisiens to sell the Brazilian, which could pave the way for an MSN reunion. However, should the Selecao ace become available, Barcelona would likely face competition from Real Madrid.
