Neymar Jr., currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain, has notified the club of his intention to depart in the summer.
Sky Sports reports that the midfielder is considering a return to Barcelona, where he previously played.
Barca are now experiencing financial difficulties, making it tough for Neymar’s desire to come true.
The Brazilian’s current contract with PSG still has three years to go.
Neymar, who will be 31 next year, may not be a priority for incoming coach Luis Enrique when he assembles a roster.
PSG has been willing to move him in order to make room for younger, more hungry players.
He played with Lionel Messi at Barcelona, and Messi recently left PSG for Inter Miami.
