Barcelona offer £90m plus two players for Neymar

Barcelona have made a £90m offer plus two players for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, according to some reports.

The La Liga club have given PSG a list of six players that could be part of the deal, which includes Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, and Malcom.

The identity of the sixth player which could be involved in the deal is not yet known.

It is understood the French giants want over £200m for the 27-year-old Brazilian.

Sky Sports News claimed on Tuesday that Neymar had told PSG he wanted to leave the club, while their manager Thomas Tuchel conceded on Wednesday that he knew the Brazil international was keen on an exit before the Copa America.

PSG sporting director Leonardo also said last week that Neymar could leave PSG “if there is an offer that suits everyone”, while also confirming “superficial contact” with Barca.

It is understood that PSG tried to convince Neymar to change his mind and the forward did not reveal to his club where he would like to move to.

He was ruled out of the recent Copa America competition – which Brazil eventually won by beating Peru 3-1 in the final – because of an injury he sustained in a friendly game against Qatar.

PSG signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record fee of £200m in August 2017.

And a lot has been said of Dembele featuring as a bargaining tool in exchange for the Brazilian but this may not be feasible as PSG aren’t interested in the forward and he doesn’t have the best relationship with Tuchel.
