Neymar Transfer news: PSG want 120 mill + 2 players from Barcelona for the star player as negotiations between the two clubs continue in the ongoing transfer season.
Before the transfer season had even begun, there were a lot of rumors about who would end up where. There was De Ligt, Pogba, Lukaku, Dybala and so many players who had huge question marks on their future. By today, the mid of August, most, if not all of them have met their conclusions. However, there is still one player whose future is in a limbo.
Barcelona and PSG have been embroiled in a transfer saga that has spanned the entire duration. In the heart of this all is a certain Brazilian, who wants to go back to a club he calls home. Unfortunately, the club does not have the funds to trigger his release clause or even meet the demands placed on them.
Neymar has made it pretty clear that he does not see his future at Paris. PSG are also open to see him leave. Barcelona have been very attentive to the situation and have made a few bids before. All of which were turned down by PSG. Barcelona are open to offering cash plus players to meet PSG halfway. However, there has been no breakthrough yet.
Julien Laurens, from ESPNFC, had earlier reported that PSG and Barcelona had a meeting yesterday and it didn’t go all too well. The clubs will meet once again tomorrow.

Eduardo Fdez-Abascal, also from ESPNFC, has reported that PSG has asked for Phil Coutinho + Nelson Semedo +€120m for their wantaway star. Barcelona have instead offered them Coutinho + Ivan Rakitic +€80m. Eduardo goes on to report that Neymar wants to leave due to having two poor seasons at France. While PSG are in dire need to sell to avoid trouble with FFP.
PSG pide Coutinho + Semedo + €120 m.
Barca ofrece Coutinho + Rakitic + €80 m.
Cantidades exageradas teniendo en cuenta que PSG tiene que vender sí o sí, que Neymar quiere ir al Barca, que viene de 2 temporadas flojas y que tiene 2 años más que cuando PSG pagó €222m por él. https://t.co/7zbbPedgnQ

Neymar has scored 34 goals in 37 matches in the French Ligue and a total of 51 goals in 58. Huge numbers anywhere in the world. However, the lack of a Champions League challenge has hurt his ambitions.
