Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum has been linked with a move to Barcelona for most of the last year.
Ronald Koeman requested the La Liga side sign the Reds midfielder and Lyon forward Memphis Depay last summer, but they failed to get either of them.
The Netherlands duo’s contracts expire at the end of this season and Barca retain an opportunity to take them on a free transfer.
For the past few days, there’s been rumours of Neymar stalling contract talks with Paris Saint-Germain as he wants to return to the Catalan club.
A ‘Top Secret’ report from Mundo Deportivo provides insight into what the current crop of players at Barcelona prefer; whether to bring the Brazil international back to the club or sign the Dutch duo in the summer.
It’s claimed the Spanish club’s dressing room is ‘still waiting’ and ‘dreaming’ for Neymar to return to Barcelona.
Although there are ‘subgroups’ within the Barca dressing room, there’s ‘unanimity’ among Koeman’s men as they prefer the club to sign Neymar over the Liverpool player and Depay.
Within the squad, they believe the arrival of their former star would be of ‘great help’ in their goal of winning the Champions League.
Mundo adds the option for Neymar to return to his old club ‘may be real’ and for this reason, his renewal talks with PSG have stalled. The Camp Nou side don’t rule out approaching the Ligue 1 side to test the possibility of landing the South American.
The next window will be the Paris club’s last opportunity to cash in on Neymar’s sale as his contract with them expires in 2022.
PSG are interested in Ousmane Dembélé and Mundo believe they ‘would welcome’ an exchange deal involving the Frenchman and Neymar.
The ‘Top Secret’ report from Mundo provides the Barca dressing room’s stance on their club signing Neymar, Jürgen Klopp’s man and Depay.
