"Neymar? A fantasy transfer and nobody knows where it will end" - Valverde

Elimination from the last 16 of the Champions League is the flawless opportunity for Neymar to close the Paris Saint-Germain chapter of his career and move back to Spain with Real Madrid.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Neymar has sent his former teammates and club representatives messages claiming he would like to return to the club.

Barcelona are still embroiled in a financial dispute over a bonus due to Neymar last summer, which the club cancelled when they believe it became clear he was moving to PSG.

'€400m for Neymar? When Madrid bought me for €72m, it seemed insane, ' said the Real Madrid manager.

"It's not just because I have a good relationship with him, but because of the type of player he is. I would always put Neymar in my team".

The rumors didn't end there. "When [Real Madrid] bought me they paid €72m [a record in 2000], or I do not know how much, and I thought it was insane".

At the moment, Neymar is arguably the world's third-most recognizable player, behind veterans Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

At Doha, as the project of the Parisian club for the next season comes up, everything is considered except a departure from Neymar this summer. One concerns a return to former club Barcelona and the other details the figure that Real Madrid have been quoted to buy him.

Mundo Deportivo report that Neymar has already discussed a possible comeback with players and executives at the Camp Nou.

Some circles even suggest Neymar only joined PSG because he couldn't directly join Real from Barca.

"I don't have to convince anyone", Zidane said.

PSG appear to be losing control of the situation, leading Al-Khelaifi to take action.

Neymar would rather return to his old club, than to Real Madrid which is also very keen to have him at whatever the cost.

Neymar missed PSG's Champions League loss to Real on Tuesday after undergoing surgery on a broken foot in Brazil last week.
