Barcelona’s negotiations to bring Neymar back from Paris Saint Germain seem to be finally underway, and a meeting has reportedly been held this Tuesday.
It’s French outlet Soccer Link who brings details, saying Eric Abidal, Javier Bordas and André Cury have met the PSG director Leonardo in Paris.
Barcelona are said to be offering an amount of €100m plus Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho in a deal for the 27-year-old.
However, due to Thomas Tuchel’s request, Leonardo proposed a different deal: he wanted Ousmane Dembele instead of Ivan Rakitic.
The problem is that the Dembele is not keen on making the move, at least according to Barcelona’s staff, so there’s not much they can do.
Soccer Link add that Philippe Coutinho’s agent is in Paris as well, and his transfer to PSG does not depend on a swap with Neymar.
However, Leonardo believes that the former Liverpool player is far from being worth the €100m which are demanded by Barcelona.
