Neymar could be set to depart from Paris Saint-Germain just two years after his world record move from Barcelona, after reports claim that he has reached an agreement with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to leave the club in the summer.

Eight US soldiers and three other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation service members have died in Afghanistan so far this year. For the first time since a US -led invasion forced the Taliban from power in 2001, elections won't be held across Afghanistan.

He left in July 2017 after the PSG exercised his release clause - paying a world record fee of £198m - but Barcelona have ruled out a return for Neymar.

One of the key factors mentioned in the press reports, behind Neymar's requests is his friendship with Lionel Messi and other Barcelona players including Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez.

Spanish media outlet Sport claims that the agreement was made with the Ligue One club's president, Nasser Al Khelaifi, but that the Brazil global must remain at the club until 2020 - three seasons after he joined for a record fee of €220m.

But the emergence of Kylian Mbappe as a global icon has handed him the same problem at PSG and Neymar has reportedly decided he'd be happier back at Barcelona.

It is believed the Brazilian would consider a move back to the Catalan giants, with Real Madrid also said to be interested in his services.

It is unlikely that Paris Saint-Germain will give up on the Brazilian star quite so easily but should the move materialize, it would be the most shocking football return of 2019.
