The Brazil international joined the Catalan giants in 2013 and has played alongside Lionel Messi, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner who is regarded as one of the greatest players in the world.
According to a sensational report in AS, the Brazilian has asked his dad to personally convey his desire to leave Camp Nou to Nasser Al-Khelaifi and is already talking about packing his bags for Paris with his close group of friends. We try to improve within the confines of what is possible.
Signing a player like Neymar from Barcelona will not be easy because the investment would have to be stratospheric, but then don't forget the case of Mbappe, a winger who when it comes to achievements is still a nobody in European football - and they are talking about figures of 130 million euros for him.
Dani Alves' decision to move to PSG has also played a part, with the winger keen to be reunited with his friend and compatriot after a year apart, with Barca surprisingly allowing the right-back to join Juventus on a free transfer last summer. The Brazilian was one of the icons at the Rakuten presentation with Barcelona in Tokyo and afterwards has returned to training with apparent normality.
If true, then the biggest obstacle in all of this will presumably be his release clause. "Manchester? Yes... or Eibar". Any deal that sees Neymar leave Barca would also, in all likelihood, make him both the most expensive and the highest-paid player in history.
The 33-year-old midfielder - who made just 13 starts in LaLiga last season - has regularly indicated he wants to retire at Barca, but Valverde is not concerned that Iniesta is now in the last year of his contract. Barcelona must be alert.
