PARIS – Neymar is ready to cut his salary by €12 million to leave Paris Saint-Germain as part of a “verbal agreement” reached between the Brazilian and Barcelona, according to reports in the Spanish press.
PSG are yet to sanction the sale of their star striker, who they paid a world record €222 million to sign from Barca only two years ago.
But Neymar is reportedly eager to return to Spain, and Barcelona are prepared to take him back, with Spanish sports newspaper Diario Sport claiming a five-year contract has been agreed.
The newspaper says the terms include Neymar reducing his salary from around €36 million at PSG to the €24m he received at Barca in 2017, while also dropping his €26m court case against the Catalan club.
Neymar claims he was due the amount before leaving as a loyalty bonus.
