The Blaugrana have finally admitted that Neymar wants to come to the club after growing tired of life at PSG.

Neymar is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer after growing frustrated at the club. In what has been one of the biggest bombshells of the summer transfer window so far, the Brazilian has already told the club’s management that he wants to leave Paris.

Neymar misses Barcelona and wants to be reunited at the club this summer. Barcelona for their part, are open to signing their former player who left the club on a rather sour note. However, Neymar is willing to make amends and will drop the legal charges he made against the Spaniards.

And the club’s vice president, Jordi Cardoner has publicly addressed Neymar’s wish to join Camp Nou this summer.

When asked by the media according to Foot Mercato, Cardoner pointed out that it won’t be the first time a player returns to Barcelona after spending some time away from it.

“I’m not surprised that Neymar wants to come back. There are a few clubs like Barcelona. Some leave and came back like Cesc and Pique…Neymar like many other players, wants to return to Barcelona.”

However, Cardoner admits that the club hasn’t forgotten how acrimonious Neymar’s departure was.

“There are a lot of things that I did not like when he left, these things have to be fixed. Neymar is a great player but we must also take into account the circumstances of his departure, if one day the possibility of his return presents itself.”

Quite clearly, Barcelona have done Neymar a huge favour by going public with their openness to bring him back. While the Spanish champions wanted the Brazilian to say something like this on his own, the club is also desperate to sign him. And it appears that they have set the wheels for the transfer in motion.
