A Barcelona and Neymar reunion tour is seemingly growing in likelihood. The former Barca player has been pretty clear about his dislike of the current PSG situation and his desire to get out and return to La Liga. Reports have been pretty clear that PSG and Barcelona have indeed started talks about a deal, Barcelona’s VP even confirmed it.

The latest news in the saga, is that PSG have started to ask for Ousmane Dembele in any deal with Barcelona that involves Neymar. At the start of the negotiations, PSG apparently told Barcelona they value Neymar at a laughable 300m euros.

Since Barcelona don’t want to fork over that much money, or anywhere close to that much money, they’ll need to include a player. The two that have been brought up, since they are valued the most, are Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele. Apparently, PSG are only interested in Demebele for the time being. Age and skill ceiling being the likely reasons.
