Barcelona are yet to agree a deal with PSG for Neymar but have reportedly come up with a new plan to get the transfer over the line.

According to Sport, the Spanish champions are now willing to offer Ivan Rakitic, Ousmane Dembele on loan and €125 million for the Brazilian.

The report reckons that the inclusion of the Croatia international may be enough to finally seal a deal, and it is expected that he would be willing to move to the French capital.

Barcelona still have their work cut out convincing Dembele to leave for a season but including the two players works for both clubs.

For Barcelona it means significantly reducing their wage bill which is needed if Neymar is to arrive and having to pay a smaller lump sum for the Brazilian.

Meanwhile, the deal could finally be enough to tempt PSG into allowing the Brazilian to leave the club two years after joining from Barcelona for €222 million.
