Neymar has flown back to Barcelona to resume his pre-season training with the Catalan giants as negotiations continue over his potential move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The 25-year-old forward flew back to Spain from Dubai on Tuesday after attending a series of promotional events in China earlier this week.
Sky sources understand talks to take Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain are now at an advanced stage, with a source in Spain close to the player maintaining the Brazilian is "90%" likely to leave this summer.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi believes negotiations are going well and that a deal is likely to be agreed for the forward, who has a €222m (£196m) release clause in his contract at the Nou Camp.
Neymar took to social media on Tuesday to post a picture of himself enjoying a meal in Dubai and then another on the plane back to Catalonia after a short stopover in the United Arab Emirates.
The Brazil international is set to link up with his team-mates when they resume their pre-season training schedule on Wednesday.
Ernesto Valverde's squad recently returned from a tour of the United States, where they registered victories over Juventus, Manchester United and bitter rivals Real Madrid.
