With an exit to PSG very much possible, Neymar is reportedly willing to apologize to the Catalan giants for the way he acted after he left them.

Neymar is definitely taking over as the biggest transfer market name. The Brazil international was treated like a king at Parc des Princes. Nasser Al –Khelaifi indulged his poster boy. Turns out, that was never enough. Even though he signed for Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona of his own accord, the Brazilian hasn’t been happy.

And he hasn’t been happy for a long time. Perhaps it was unhappiness that resulted in such petulant behaviour that has been discussed so much already. Now, the striker is looking to seal a sensation return to Camp Nou.

Neymar has already told the Ligue 1 giants’ president that he misses Barcelona and wants to leave. While such an early exit is going to hurt the French team, it is perhaps better that way. Neymar leaving would also ease the ever so present threat of UEFA Financial Fair Play.

But in order for everything to move forward, Neymar needs to do certain things.

Reports in Sport claim that Neymar has to apologize to Barcelona. And it is not a behind closed doors apology the Spaniards are looking for. The reigning La Liga champions want the prodigal son to apologize publicly. Indeed, such a move would serve as a vote of confidence for the club to make such an expensive deal happen.

While Barcelona are eager for a return, they do not want to leave the Brazilian with all the bargaining chips. And keeping in view all those issues that transpired in Paris, it isn’t a bad thing either.

Being heralded as a future Balon d’Or winner, Neymar carries a lot of weight. And if not taken care of, his ego can also ruin the atmosphere within the club.
