The next El Clásico is scheduled for the 27th of October, but Barcelona and Real Madrid seem to be in a harsh fight against each other long before that.
That’s because Neymar seems to be open to a move to either of the clubs, and it sounds like a matter of who will get to a deal with Paris Saint Germain first.
On Tuesday, we covered a couple of stories from France saying Barça have sent their officials to meet PSG. The Catalan side’s idea would be to make a swap, giving two players plus an amount of money.
Now updates from Soccer Link say PSG players are trying to convince Barcelona stars to make the move. It’s said that Kylian Mbappé is in touch with Ousmane Dembele, while Marquinhos speaks to Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho’s agents are said to be in Paris, but as said by the French press and confirmed by the Brazilian media, he may end up moving to PSG regardless of Neymar’s transfer.
Meanwhile, PSG’s intentions with Real Madrid would be pretty similar. As reported by AS today, the French side have asked for Vinícius Junior in a swap with Neymar.
But the Galacticos are said not to be interested in giving away their wonderkid, and rejected his inclusion more than once.
Now the clubs keep looking for other alternatives.
