Neymar's representatives have played down reports linking the Paris Saint-Germain forward with a return to Barcelona this summer.

Speculation has been rife over a potential reunion with Barca for the 28-year-old, who amassed 105 goals in 186 appearances for La Blaugrana between 2013 and 2017.

However, recent reports have suggested that PSG are expecting the attacker to stay in the French capital, and a member of Neymar's entourage has since confirmed that no talks have taken place regarding the Brazilian's future.

In quotes attributed to The Sun, the representative said: "We have never spoken about [a return to Barcelona]. For the moment, our only concern is with the coronavirus.

"We think the summer will be calm. Honestly, we are not talking about [a move] at this moment. Neither an extension with PSG, nor moving elsewhere."

Neymar has contributed 13 goals and six assists in 15 Ligue 1 appearances for Thomas Tuchel's side this season, and will see his current deal with PSG expire in 2022.
