PSG Wants €175M From Barcelona For Neymar; Not Interested in Swap Deal

Our friends in the Spanish media still aren’t tired about talking about Neymar Jr., so let’s see what they have to say now.

According to Sport, FC Barcelona has reached out to Paris Saint-Germain about the availability of Neymar (who they claim wants to return to the Camp Nou) but were told the Brazilian will set them back €175 million.

Given Barcelona’s financial issues, that figure may as well be €1 billion. The fact is, Barcelona (and no club right now to be honest) can afford to spend that amount of money due to the coronavirus.

The report also revealed that PSG will not entertain a player swap to help lower Neymar’s transfer fee. In the words of NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, PSG wants “straight cash, homey.”

Any funds that Barcelona does have at their disposal will likely be used for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, who could cost upwards of €111 million. However, the Italian club may not be in a hurry to sell after offloading Mauro Icardi to PSG.

This could be a difficult transfer window for Barcelona. They have surrounded the aging Lionel Messi with some average players and they’re ill-equipped to make the necessary signings to replace them with.

    I like both neymar jr and Lautaro Martinez.

    It would seem that if Barça had the € 175 million and paid for Neymar, all the problems would be solved! You won’t see that!
    Again: as long as Nasser Al- Khelaifi will be the President of Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar will not get back to Barcelona! For any amount of money offered!

      I’m not so sure. I think if Barcelona could pay that price PSG would be prepared to move on.

        I have to admit that Neymar belongs to Barça style to play! As Giovanni Trapattoni says in 2013 when the Brazilian reached Nou Camp: “There are some players who sing, and some who carry the cross.” “It looks like Barcelona just hired Mick Jagger to walk the road to Calvary!”

    I believe PSG have try there best to be on the losing side, Barcelona should wakeup and take the bull from the hone , if the really need neymar the have to take the offer (€175M) I think that is best .
