BARCELONA are ready to revive their bid to re-sign Neymar.
The Spanish giants tried to put together a deal to buy him from Paris Saint-Germain last summer but were unable to agree a price.
Barca were desperately trying to put together a package worth up to £236million to bring the Brazilian back to the Nou Camp
– but PSG decided it wasn't right for them to sell their prize asset.
Yet the club's director of football Eric Abidal insists they still want to get a deal done for the 27-year-old, hinting that they will return with another offer next year.
Abidal told Mundo Deportivo: "Neymar wanted to come. We tried. We have not given up on this.
"We will have to take decisions from a football perspective but also from a financial perspective, there will be things that we could do and other we can’t do.
"The future will tell us what it is that we can do.
"If remains he at a certain level, because the season is still long, I am not going to say that he is our #1 option but he is clearly an option.”
Neymar appears to have his heart set on returning to LaLiga having apparently grown disillusioned with life in France.
He made the move to Paris in order to get out of the shadow of Lionel Messi and try to win the Ballon d'Or.
In order to do that he would have had to help the French club win the Champions League, but he has been unable to make the difference so far in his two years there.
Real Madrid were also keen to sign him last summer and they could yet come back with a rival offer if Barca re-enter the market for him in 2020.Neymar shows off his musical skills by playing Coldplay on the piano
