Barcelona Launch New Neymar Bid Which Includes Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona Launch New Neymar Bid Which Includes Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona are reportedly preparing a new bid for Paris Saint-Germain winger Neymar and it will include Ousmane Dembele going to the French champions.


However it will only include the 22 year-old moving to Thomas Tuchel's side on loan.

Tuchel will know Dembele well as the duo worked together at Borussia Dortmund.

Including Dembele in a potential deal is being considered as a 'new formula' to get Neymar back to the Nou Camp.

He departed Barca in 2017 for a world record €222 million fee.

However his time in Paris has been marred with controversy and he is looking for a way out of the Ligue 1 champions.

Tuchel has said that the winger will not play for PSG until his future is resolved.

He has also suffered due to the emergence of Kylian Mbappe who has arguably taken over as being PSG's most important player on the pitch.

Speaking ahead of their game against Toulouse, the German coach said per AS:

"He has trained well, has worked to recover from his discomfort and is physically fit to play, but the club has been clear.

"If the situation is not resolved, he won't play (against Toulouse)."

Barcelona have already added an expensive forward to their attack this summer with the €120 million signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

But with the loan departure of Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich, Ernesto Valverde remains keen to add another attacker to his front line despite the money spent on Griezmann.

A slew of players have been offered to PSG over the last few months to tempt them into letting the former Brazil captain go.

Some of those have included defender Samuel Umtiti, midfielder Ivan Rakitic as well as the now Bayern loanee Coutinho.

But the Parisians are standing firm and will not let Neymar go unless they get what they want.

Barca will be hoping Dembele is the player suitable to bring Neymar back for a second stint.

Do you think Neymar will be a Barcelona player by the end of the transfer window? Let us know in the comments below.
