The wantaway PSG star appeared on the cusp of a return to the Spanish giants in the summer, with his feelings public on his intent to leave the French champions.

Team-mate Kylian Mbappe has usurped the winger as the team’s star man and as such, Neymar is pining for a reunion with Messi and Suarez, with whom he enjoyed plenty of success.

However, Neymar’s PSG team-mate Marco Verratti insists the winger is happy in France
Neymar is close with his fellow South Americans at Barcelona, and reports have suggested Messi is keen for the Brazilian to rejoin the club.
However, PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has insisted that his team-mate is happy in France.
‘Neymar is fine,’ Verratti told Telefoot. ‘He is certainly happier when he is on the pitch. However, he is working well. At one point, he wanted to leave. He had some difficult moments.
‘In the end, he stayed and he is training better than ever. He really wants to return as soon as possible to help the team to go far.’
