NEYMAR has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club – but could this affect a potential Liverpool move for Philippe Coutinho?

By announcing that he wants to leave the Parc des Princes, Neymar has now left the door open for a sensational return to Barcelona.

The world’s most expensive footballer has been linked with a move back to the Nou Camp all summer and a deal could now progress rapidly.

The Brazil international confirmed his intention to leave the French capital after talks with PSG’s sporting director Leonardo earlier on Monday, according to ESPN.

Leonardo said last week Neymar can leave PSG “if there is an offer that suits everyone”, while also confirming “superficial contact” with Barcelona.

The 27-year-old has returned to Paris having previously failed to report for pre-season training.

PSG have yet to make a formal comment but it is believed that talks with Barcelona are ongoing.

The Spanish champions want the star to return but may struggle to pay his likely huge transfer fee in one hit.

Coutinho, who has failed to settle since his £142m move from Liverpool last January, has been spoken about as a potential makeweight in any deal.

PSG are thought to be interested in bringing in the Brazilian as part of the Neymar package.

This news would not be welcomed by Liverpool, who have been linked with bringing the midfielder back to Anfield.

Boss Jurgen Klopp is still on the hunt for a creative midfield player to help out the front three with goals and assists.

The team has struggled to create from midfield ever since Coutinho moved on.

Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian spoke out over the weekend however and insists his client wants to stay and fight for his place.

Whether this is true or not remains to be seen, but with Neymar’s announcement and the summer transfer window closing in a couple of weeks, something has to give.

Neymar has scored 51 goals in 58 appearances since moving to PSG but his time at the club has been marred by controversies and injury.

He was brought in to help the club win the Champions League but has failed to help take the team up to the next level.
