Barcelona and Neymar are continuing to make headlines and the latest details of an offer for the Brazilian are splashed all over the front pages in Spain.

According to Sport, Barcelona want to bring in Neymar on loan with an option to buy for €160 million in 2020, although it’s not clear if that will be a mandatory purchase option.

The report also claims Barcelona can’t pay for Neymar this summer because they have already spent all their cash on Frenkie de Jong, Junior Firpo and Antoine Griezmann.

Over at Mundo Deportivo it’s a pretty similar story. However, their report reckons that Barcelona only want to hand over €150 million for their former star.

Their headline is ‘New Offer’ and the report suggests the deal they will offer PSG will be similar to that which has taken Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich.

Barca will pay a fee to take Neymar on loan, and the deal will include the €150m purchase option which will be non-compulsory.

Juventus also appear to have entered the race to sign Neymar in recent days but time is starting to run out for all parties with less than two weeks left in the transfer window.
