Neymar reaches verbal agreement with Barca

Report: Verbal agreement in place for Neymar to return to Barca

June 25, 2019 By Ali M.
The Brazilian is reportedly pushing for a return and has thus accepted all conditions from the Blaugrana.

According to reports out of Spain, Neymar has already agreed to personal terms with Barcelona as the Brazilian pushes for a return to Camp Nou.

Catalan newspaper Sport writes that a verbal agreement is in place for the Brazilian to rejoin the Blaugrana. The Spanish giants have three conditions and the attacker accepted all of them without hesitation. 

The biggest condition is a pay cut. Josep Maria Bartomeu and Co. are not willing to match the player's wages at PSG and the player has agreed to those terms for two reasons. Firstly, he is aware that the Liga champions will have to spend big to bring him back and thus did not push for a higher salary. Secondly, his desire to return is not for financial reasons, but for sporting reasons.

This would mean goodbye to his $42M-per-season salary as he would return to the $27.3M he was pocketing annually during his Barca days. Furthermore, he has also agreed to waive his claim for a loyalty bonus which he was owed as a result of his departure back in 2017.

If this deal goes through, the Brazilian would put pen to paper on a five-year deal which would keep him at Camp Nou until he is 32. However, pulling off that deal is easier said than done as PSG will not let the player go for cheap.

Reports claim that the president of the Ligue 1 giants is ready to let him go as he sees a lack of commitment from the world's most expensive player. Despite this, Les Parisiens broke the bank to sign him and would not sanction a deal with an astronomical offer.

As a result, the Blaugrana are exploring options to lower the asking price. One could see Coutinho move to Paris which would bring an end to his torrid time at the Camp Nou.
