Barcelona are reportedly set to offer Paris Saint-Germain €100 million and Philippe Coutinho for Neymar.

According to Sport, the two clubs are already in talks for the Brazilian in the hope of getting a deal done this summer.

PSG initially asked for €300m for the 27-year-old but that seems unlikely given it’s more than he cost and his value has dropped during his time in the French capital.

Barcelona have therefore countered and are willing to hand over a large lump sum and Coutinho, who is liked by incoming sporting director Leonardo.

The club are keen to reduce their huge wage bill this summer and Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti and Ivan Rakitic are all players who the club are willing to part ways with.
