‘Operation Neymar’ is splashed on the front page of Mundo Deportivo as the Paris Saint-Germain star continues to be linked with a return to Barcelona.
In 2017, the Brazil international left Camp Nou and completed a switch to Parc des Princes for a world-record fee of €222m.
The forward has now offered himself to his former club, but the La Liga winners will not be able to do anything other than take note of the situation because he still has three years left on his contract, which does not have a release clause.
Ernesto Valverde’s side, just like their league rivals Real Madrid, are waiting to see if the French champions will make the 27-year-old available in the transfer market.
Should that happen, the Blaugrana are willing to offer three players as a part of the deal and this includes their two expensive signings Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, along with Ivan Rakitic.
At Camp Nou, they are aware the trio are of interest for the Ligue 1 champions and the France international is one of the brightest young talent in his country after another PSG star Kylian Mbappe.
Dembele impressed at Borussia Dortmund under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, and if the forward joins Les Parisiens, he will be reunited with his former manager.
PSG have been looking at Coutinho’s situation for the last few months and the advantage for them is the former Liverpool star’s preference to leave his current employer due to the differences with fans.
Last summer, the Paris club were interested in Rakitic and strengthening midfield is one the priorities for them in the this time around.
The Croatian continues to linked with a move away from Barca, but there is no mention if PSG are still interested in him.
Mundo’s report makes it clear that PSG have not made Neymar available as of now, and this all sounds like Catalan newspaper are trying to send out a message to PSG on Barca’s behalf more than anything else.
