PSG sporting director Leonardo has given an update on Neymar’s future and says Barcelona have not come up with an offer that has met his club’s demands.

Rumors this week have suggested that Barcelona offered cash plus Ivan Rakitic and Ousmane Dembele on loan but saw the deal rejected by PSG.

Leonardo says they have had an offer from the Spanish champions but have yet to agree a deal for the Brazilian.

“The first time we received a proposal from Barcelona for Neymar was on August 27. They have not yet given us an offer which has met our demands,” Leonardo said.

“PSG’s position on Neymar has always been clear: if a satisfactory offer arrives then he could leave but that is not the case. The negotiations have not broken down but there’s no agreement for now because our demands have not been met.”

Time is rapidly running out in the transfer window which means a deal is starting to look increasingly unlikely. Leonardo also said Neymar’s made it clear he wants to leave but “if an offer doesn’t arrive which we think is worth it, he will stay.”
