Barcelona’s latest bid for Neymar has been turned down by Paris Saint-Germain, according to the latest report.
RMC Sport reckon that despite “two days of intense negotiations” the answer from the French champions to Barcelona remains no.
The offer was believed to include Ousmane Dembele, but his agent made it clear on Wednesday that the forward has no interest in leaving the Camp Nou.
The latest report suggests that Barcelona are now left with only one choice, pay what PSG want (believed to be around €170m) or give up on Neymar altogether.
Barcelona director Javier Bordas said on Tuesday the club were getting “closer” to a deal for Neymar but that optimism now seems misplaced.
Of course this is unlikely to be the last we hear of this transfer saga, but time to complete a deal is rapidly running out.
