Barcelona are set to make another move to sign Neymar this summer.

The Brazilian forward is said to be keen on returning to the Nou Camp having left for a world-record £200million in 2017.

They failed to bring him back to Barcelona last summer after they were unable to agree a fee with PSG.

But the Catalans are set to make another bid in the upcoming window, and Setien admitted on Friday that he would love to coach the 28-year-old.

He insisted that he didn't know whether Barcelona would be able to conclude a deal with PSG, but that he wants to manage the megastar.

"Of course I would like to coach Neymar one day," Setien said.

"Fortunately I have been able to fulfill one dream of coaching the best player in the world in Leo [Messi].

"What is to come next, we will wait and see. But I’m sure I would be delighted, how would I not be?"
