Youngsters Riqui Puig and Carles Alena and Barcelona’s ongoing pursuit of Neymar are making headlines in Spain on Monday.

Mundo Deportivo have Neymar on their front page with a report that the Brazilian is apparently willing to do his utmost to secure a Camp Nou return.

The report states Neymar has turned down a tasty new renewal offer worth €100m from PSG and is so keen to play for Barcelona again he’s willing to take a 50% pay cut.

He is now willing to try and force an exit from the Ligue 1 champions but will need guarantees from Barca that they will do their best to sign him.

Over at Sport the news is about how Barca are keen to have both Carles Alena and Riqui Puig in the first team next season.

The club have decided to place more focus on their youngsters for both sporting and economic reasons which is good news for both players.

The report reckons the club have made the strategic decision to trust in the duo. They will both be part of Quique Setien’s first-team squad and will be given the chance to impress.

There has been speculation that both players could leave in the summer but Barca would only now consider selling either if they received a huge offer.
