Earlier this week, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed that after travelling to Brazil to receive treatment for his injury, Neymar reportedly contacted Barcelona about a potential way to engineer a move back to the Catalan giants.
Neymar's Brazilian team-mate Marquinhos has spoken out to advise his fellow Brazil global that he should stick with Paris Saint-Germain's "project", despite the Parisians disappointing showing in the Champions League against defending champions Real Madrid.
However, it remains to be seen whether or not the Blaugrana's bosses would be prepared to forget Neymar's antics before his world record move.
The Brazilian swapped the Nou Camp for the Parc des Princes when he joined PSG in the summer for a world record transfer fee of £198m, and has settled into life in Paris well.
He now believes the Ligue 1 is inferior to La Liga.
Neymar will undoubtedly be disappointed in the nature of PSG's Champions League exit and the Parsian club will be hoping that domestic success is enough to convince Neymar to stay put, despite him complaining about a number of things since joining the club - most recently his disappointment with the way close friend Lucas Moura was "forced out" of the club.
"It is a fantasy and we are not going to speak about rumours when we know it would not end here".
In a poll by Mundo Deportivo, 67 per cent of those polled insisted that they would not play Neymar at Barcelona.
He also reckons Barca's arch-rivals, Real Madrid, are sniffing around. "On the 400 million, they paid 220 million and when they bought me they paid 72". "It may well be that in the next 10 years someone will pay 400m, or sooner, I do not know".
Neymar missed PSG's last 16 loss to Real on Tuesday after undergoing surgery on a broken foot in Brazil last week.
