Barcelona will reportedly return with a fresh bid to sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain next year after their approach for the Brazilian failed this summer.
Neymar, who joined PSG for a world-record £198m in 2017, has enthusiastically pushed for a return to Camp Nou after falling out with the club's hierarchy.
However, it was claimed last week that the La Liga champions had abandoned their pursuit of Neymar after concluding that striking a deal this year was impossible.
According to ESPN, Barcelona plan to return next summer with a fresh bid for Neymar, who they view as a 'strategic signing'.
The 27-year-old, who travels to Miami with the Brazil squad this week, has now reportedly accepted that a return to Catalonia will have to wait.
Neymar is said to have seriously poisoned his relations with the PSG hierarchy, reportedly entering a 'total war' with sporting director Leonardo, while PSG fans displayed X-rated banners slamming the forward last month.body check tags ::
