Neymar regrets leaving Barcelona and has told club executives about it
The Brazilian wanted a return, but the club doesn't consider the possibility
The Neymar Saga ended long ago, but one just might think it will last a few more years after reports like this. Mundo Deportivo claims Neymar's constant visits to Barcelona and meetings with the club's players aren't a coincidence, and that he regrets leaving for Paris Saint Germain after the stunts made to persuade him by his own father and the agent Wagner Ribeiro.
MD goes even further, saying Neymar has secretly told a Barcelona official that he would like to return and even talked to intermediaries that hold a good relationship with the club's hierarchy to gauge the interest on his signing. He left many friends at the club and given the hardships at Paris since departing, he's unhappy and even cried when talking about it.
The club itself doesn't consider bringing him back, the signings made with the transfer fee have yielded many benefits, and the player still is suing Barcelona for a signing bonus he didn't receive after renewing his contract. His flirting with Real Madrid doesn't help his cause either.
