MD claims that Neymar feels he has made a mistake in making a decision he thought would help him grow as a player, while he is said to be surprised that the quality in Ligue 1 is quite so inferior to La Liga.

The idea that the world record signing would be welcomed back with open arms appears unlikely should he secure a move away from Paris Saint-Germain.

"In April we will have time to look ahead and focus on the Champions League".

The Brazilian's frustrations appear to stem from the fact he misses his former team-mates and admits he was stubborn in trying to come out from Lionel Messi's shadow.

In the first leg of the tie, Paris at least created a number of opportunities against hosts Real Madrid.

The Brazil international broke the world transfer record when he switched to Parc des Princes last summer.

Neymar had to be stretchered off in his team's win against Marseille last month after he sprained his ankle and fractured his metatarsal.

On Thursday, UEFA, the governing body of European football, said it was opening an enquiry into the events at the match in which PSG was eliminated from Europe.

Real are currently third in the league, a whopping 15 points behind leaders Barcelona and their title challenge is all but over.

The report suggests that the 26-year-old will spend one more year in Paris before attempting to engineer a move back to Spain in 2019. There is also still a pending court case over outstanding bonus payments between the two parties. However, when quizzed about such reports, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has said that he isn't interested in talking about rumors. "He is not a kid and he understands the strength that the team needs so that he can shine".

Neymar essentially forced his way out of the club by handing in a transfer request, with Barca eventually letting him go after PSG activated his €222 million release clause.

According to Don Balon, Liverpool have joined the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic, a player United also have their eye on.
