Spanish football team Barcelona will arrange a spectacular deal to get Brazilian star Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG) Neymar, 27, to return to his former club.
Barcelona are ready to pay $ 100 million and send Croatian center, 31-year-old Ivan Rakitic and Brazilian attacking midfielder Filipi Koutinju, who is Neymar, to report to PSG.
PSG initially rejected the Barcelona offer, which included a coupon and transitional fee of € 60 million. Currently the quantity is increased and Rakitich is added to the offer.
Barcelona would gladly not pay $ 100 million, but would send another player to PSG, like 22-year-old Usman Dembele or 25-year-old guard Nelson Semedo. PSG is not interested in getting Raktika, but he would love to see Koutinju and Semedo under his wing.
Neymar wants to return to Barcelona, but the Spanish media has noticed his lawyer entering the club's office on Monday.
It is reported that the "Neymar issue" may be resolved on August 15 or 16, when a meeting of the European Football Clubs Association takes place in Liverpool with the participation of both PSG and Barcelona presidents.
Neymar is the most expensive football player of all time, bought by PSG in 2017 directly from the Barcelona unit for € 222 million. The footballer has scored 51 goals in 58 games in two games for PSG in two seasons and 105 goals in 186 games for Barcelona in four seasons. Prior to that, for five seasons, Neymar represented the Brazilian unit Santos.
