Catalans want the Brazilian to take the initiative and push for a return to Camp Nou, while he will also have to straighten the bridges with the fans
Barcelona set up its Operation Neymar to re-sign the Brazilian striker, who is ready to call a career time at Paris Saint-Germain.
Goal understands that the Catalans were in contact with Neymar camp to start the process of his return to Camp Nou.
Neymar, who moved to PSG in 2017 for a world record of 222m euros (£ 260m), is unhappy with the Park de Princes, and is looking for an exit, despite only a year in France, trophies.
The star team was in contact with several Barca executives who responded with detailed instructions on how the deal that was quite impossible a few months ago could become a reality.
Above all, Barsa insist that, following the recent public comments by director Pep Segura about the possibility of returning to Brazil, the next step must come from the player himself.
The club board is aware that Neymar's way of leaving him left much of the fanaticism disappointed with his behavior, that he hurried from his departure and did not refer to the way of setting up the famous club.
As a gesture of goodwill, Neymar could make a public statement, assuming that his tension would go in such a way, a move that calmed the cautious supporters.
It may be necessary to reduce wages. Neymar takes home nearly 40 million euros with PSG, a figure within reach of Barca, given their current problems to keep wages under control.
The Blaugrana Board believes that such a reduction is essential for a prosperity deal, while the goal understands that Neymar would also like to negotiate lower terms.
"If the war continues on the lawsuits, it will be impossible for Neymar to return," said the director of the Catalan club for Goal in connection with several court squads that continue to oversee the player and the club in Spain.
"The DIS case" that dates back to its first days in Barca after the end of the controversial transfer from Santos is still heard, while Neymar's letter for alleged 26 million euros for unpaid post salaries and a counter-suit from Barça over 30 million euros bonuses from its renewal are also outstanding.
If both sides are serious about his return, they must bury the ax and repair the lawyers.
PSG will also need to be compensated after receiving relatively little return to date for their huge investment. After Neymar meets the conditions set out in Barça's road map detailing above, the club will then turn their concerns to League 1 giants.
In order to avoid hostilities, or to open up or to fill the surface in the coming years, Barca believes Neymar must force this issue, making publicly admit he is not happy in PSG and wants a change in the scenery.
