Barcelona’s attempts to bring Neymar back to the Camp Nou have seen the club offer Paris Saint-Germain a deal involving Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic and €40 million.
According to L’Equipe, Barcelona verbally made the offer but PSG don’t fancy it much and if it were put in writing it would get rejected.
L’Equipe call it a ‘Very Bad Deal’ on their front page:
The report also reckons that PSG are getting a bit fed up with the whole Neymar situation and have set a deadline of the end of the month for his future to be sorted out.
That is not going to be easy to do either. Neymar has made it clear he wants out, but the two clubs look miles apart in what they want in regards a fee for the Brazilian.
PSG reportedly want a fee in the region of €200m for Neymar, while it seems Barca would rather a player-plus-cash deal.
