Neymar has posted a video of himself in a Barcelona shirt on social media - fuelling speculation that the Paris Saint-Germain forward might return to his former club.

Injured Neymar has been in his native Brazil supporting their victory over Peru in the Copa America final, missing pre-season training with PSG.

He joined PSG from Barcelona on a five-year deal for a world-record transfer fee of E222million in 2017, but there has been recent talk of him returning to the Spanish club.

Neymar (27) prompted more speculation with a brief Instagram video showing a black-and-white image of himself in a shirt with the badge of Barcelona and a quote from the Bible.

But his PR company, in a statement last night, said, "After these events Neymar will show up normally on Monday, July 15, as PSG had been informed weeks ago."

The striker has scored 34 goals in 37 games for the French outfit.
