Neymar has reportedly agreed to the three terms Barcelona have laid out for him to proceed with a move back to the Nou Camp.
The Brazilian left Barca for Paris Saint-Germain in a world record £199 million deal two years ago, but he has now seemingly grown tired of life in the French capital and in Ligue 1.
Reports have claimed that the 27-year-old would be prepared to go on strike to force through a move back to the club where he won the Champions League in 2015, and that he has informed PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi of his desires.
Neymar is said to have told him: “I do not want to play more in PSG. I want to go back to my house, where I should never have left.”
This comes after Al-Khelaifi went public in a statement which appeared to criticise Neymar, who is currently injured and paid a visit to see the Brazil squad at the Copa America on Friday.
“Players will have to assume their responsibilities even more than before,” said Al-Khelaifi.
“It must be completely different. They will have to do more, work more.
“They are not there to please themselves. And if they do not agree, the doors are open. Ciao!
“I do not want to have any celebrity behaviour anymore.”
And now UOL, via Sport , claim that Neymar has agreed to three requests from Barca to kickstart the transfer.
He is said to have to take a wage cut from what he earns in Paris, drop a lawsuit against the club over an alleged unpaid bonus from when he was a Barca player and go public with his desire to move.
If he has indeed agreed to those requests, then he could soon be announced as a Barca player again.
