PSG star Neymar will have to take £26MILLION pay cut if he wants to return to Barcelona in summer transfer – The Sun

NEYMAR will have to take a £26MILLION pay cut if he wants to return to Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain.

The world’s most-expensive footballer nearly returned to the Nou Camp from the French giants last summer and remains hopeful he can still complete his dream move.

Now it seems the £198m Brazilian superstar will have to make a choice between cash and personal happiness.

Neymar currently pockets around £600,000-a-week at Parc des Princes with PSG keen to offer him a new contract worth even more, claims Mundo Deportivo.

PSG are willing to give the forward a deal worth £44m-a-season – including a £12m sponsorship from the National Bank of Qatar.

That would move him in line with the planet’s two best-paid footballers, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Neymar is believed to be desperate to seal a return to play alongside Messi at Barca.

But the La Liga powerhouses are only able to afford to offer him a deal worth £18m each season.

Neymar is in his third season at PSG following his mega-money move from Barcelona in 2017.

He has scored 18 goals and provided 10 assists so far this season but he and his team-mates have failed to challenge for the Champions League during his time at the club.

Neymar did lift that prize with Barca in 2015, a team he scored 105 times for in 186 matches during his four-year stint there.
