Neymar Transfer to Barcelona: PSG demand two Barcelona superstars- Philippe Coutinho and Nelson Semedo with €50 million cash.
Neymar is speculated to leave PSG this summer after falling out with the hierarchy at PSG, the Brazilian International has shown interest in going back to his former club Barcelona, and the Catalan giants have shown interest in hiring him back.
However, the purchase of Neymar will be a costly affair for Barcelona, as the Catalan giants have already hired Antoine Griezmann this summer, and the French giants are not lured by the cash.
Thus, according to a report by the Goal, Les Parisiens have asked for two Barcelona superstar in addition to €50 million cash to hire the services of Neymar. The two reported superstars are Philippe Coutinho and Nelson Semedo.
It might be a tricky situation for Barcelona over here, as Semedo is a crucial player for the Blaugranas in defence. On the other hand, Barcelona and Coutinho are ready to part ways, and this seems the right valuation for the former Liverpool midfielder.
Now, Barcelona have to decide on Semedo, who has gained prominence in Ernesto Valverde’s side. PSG don’t have many options on the right side of the defence after the departure of Thomas Meunier. Hence, the Portuguese International will certainly improve Les Parisiens’ defence.
Although, it would be in the best of interests of Barcelona if they avoid hiring Neymar, as their staggering wage bill might add further financial burden.
Additionally, even Real Madrid have made a formal approach for Neymar, and have offered a lucrative deal to the Brazilian forward. To which, a response by Neymar is still awaited.
But reports suggest that Neymar is interested in Barcelona, but his urge of leaving the French capital can compel him to join Los Blancos this summer.
