Madrid-based newspaper AS reports Neymar's father has met with Real Madrid, who is ready to pay 400 million euros to sign the striker.

Some reports even claim the Brazil global - who is now sidelined with a foot and ankle injury - wants to return to La Liga next season, with his former club Barca and European and Spanish champions Real Madrid having been mentioned as possible destinations.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi will travel to Brazil in the next few days to meet Neymar and discuss his future, amid claims he could be allowed to return to La Liga this summer.

The Brazilian has not settled in Paris and with his team knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid this week, he is as unhappy as ever.

He is believed to have told former team-mates that he was wrong in wanting to step out from Lionel Messi's shadow and lacks the understanding he had with his former colleagues.

Serena And Venus Williams Meet After 14-Year Tournament Boycott
Venus last beat Serena in the semifinals of the Rogers Cup in 2014, in a two-hour, three-set match. After that, she's lost all three matches to Serena - including last year's Australian Open final.

"He has not told me anything, but if it's up to me, I would open the door right now", Rakitic was quoted as saying by reporters after FC Barcelona's routine 2-0 win over Malaga in La Liga.

"I'm not going to talk about a player that is not mine. I would always put Ney on my team", he added.

After Neymar left Barca for PSG in the summer, the Calatan giants bought Ousmane Dembele in August before signing Coutinho in January as they sought to replace the influential forward.

"With Neymar, that's life, but I have the same feelings as Rakitic", Coutinho said, as quoted by Marca.

A serious back injury saw him miss the infamous 7-1 demolition job by Germany in the semi-finals - but he sees World Cup success as his priority for 2018.
