PSG star Neymar admits he wanted to leave in 2019 and return to Barcelona.

Neymar concedes he was struggling to adapt in Paris at the time.

He said in a documentary on his career: "When I made the decision to leave PSG, it wasn't because of a fan or a club. It's because I saw that I felt better elsewhere. I never had anything against the PSG fans, nor against the club itself. It was never that. On the contrary. I am very grateful, we are on the same side, we defend the same shirt. I am here to help."

Neymar's father also recalled: "He wanted to leave PSG to return to Barça. I didn't want him to leave PSG, but who do I work for? We tried to leave PSG amicably but it didn't work out."
