Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, reaffirmed his desire to leave the club in a short meeting with sporting director, Leonardo, ESPN reports.
The meeting took place after the Brazil international reported for preseason training on Monday, one week after he was expected back.
Neymar and Leonardo have spoken many times over the telephone since the latter's return as sporting director earlier this month, but Monday was the first time they spoke face to face.
Although Neymar did not train with his club teammates and is not expected to feature in Tuesday's friendly against Dynamo Dresden in Germany, he did a significant amount of gym work.
The 27-year-old is expected to undergo further tests as his teammates travel to Rudolf Harbig stadium.
The ball is now in Barcelona's court and it is understood the LaLiga champions still believe a deal is possible, despite signing Antoine Griezmann for €120million last week.
