In a desperate move to sign Brazilian forward Neymar, Barcelona have made a fresh  £90m offer plus two players for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) , according to Sky Sports.

The LaLiga club have given PSG a list of six players that could be included in the deal, including Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, and Malcom.

It is understood the French club want over £200m for the 27-year-old.

Sky Sports News reported on Tuesday that Neymar had told PSG he wanted to leave, while their manager Thomas Tuchel admitted on Wednesday that he knew the Brazilian was keen on an exit before the Copa America.

PSG sporting director Leonardo said last week that Neymar could leave PSG “if there is an offer that suits everyone”, while also confirming “superficial contact” with Barcelona.

Sky sources understand PSG tried to convince Neymar to change his mind and the Brazil international did not tell his club where he would like to move to.

He was ruled out of the recent Copa America tournament – which Brazil won by beating Peru 3-1 in the final – because of an ankle injury sustained in a friendly against Qatar.

PSG signed Neymar for a world-record fee of £200m from Barcelona in August 2017.

Report in Spain says Barcelona have reached a verbal agreement with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) playmaker Neymar over his return to Camp Nou – two years after the Brazilian left for a world record fee.

Neymar is set to earn £400,000-a-week in a 5-year and for that deal to happen, Neymar will take a significant cut in salary, from €36.8 million per season (second highest in world football) to €24 million, a €12million reduction as was his contract before leaving PSG.

Sport journalist Albert Masnou also claims that due to Neymar’s desire to return, he did not even try to negotiate the amount. Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is also willing to drop all legal issues against Neymar. The club had taken their former star player to court over loyalty bonus when it became obvious Neymar was prepared to force his way out of Barcelona to PSG.

Now all that is left to do, the paper says, is for the clubs to come to an agreement on an appropriate transfer fee for the player. As previously reported by Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 side are looking to make a profit on the man they plucked away from Barça, and are demanding 300 million euros. Although in simple terms this is likely a price too high to pay, other conditions – for example including players in part exchange – could allow the two football powerhouses to find a satisfactory middle ground. If not, Sport confirm, Real Madrid would be the only other option potentially available to him.

For Neymar’s part, money has been put as a lesser priority than achieving greatness, following a period in France that did little for his reputation. If this move becomes a reality, he will have a chance to restore his name … Read More...
