Neymar has scored 21 goals in 27 La Liga outings for Barcelona this season

Barcelona forward Neymar would discuss a move to Paris St-Germain if the French champions showed an interest, according to the player’s agent.

Brazil international Neymar, 24, has scored 52 goals in 86 La Liga games since joining Barca from Santos for £48.6m in June 2013.

Agent Wagner Ribeiro said that Neymar has a £154m release clause in his contract, which expires in 2018.

“If PSG show an interest in Neymar, we can discuss it,” he told L’Equipe.

Neymar has excelled as part of Barca’s ‘MSN’ strikeforce alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, with the Catalan club six points clear at the top of La Liga, through to Copa del Rey final and in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ribeiro added: “He feels good in Barcelona. He’s loved over there and he’s playing for the best team in the world.

“It’s no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.

“But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG – that’s also a dream for every player.

“We’ll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract. A contract can also be terminated provided that the release clause is paid.

“It’s huge: 193m euros. But I don’t think that would be an insurmountable problem for PSG.”
