PSG Tell Barcelona What They Want For Neymar Transfer

PSG have told Barcelona what they want in order to sell Neymar back to them, to avoid last summer's long transfer saga that ended up going nowhere.

Neymar has been linked with a move back to the Nou Camp for the past couple of seasons and last summer Lionel Messi wanted his club to bring his former teammate back to Spain.

The saga lasted a big chunk of the summer but never happened, and Barca signed Antoine Griezmann instead, but they could be back for the Brazilian this summer.

According to Spanish outlet El Chiringuito, the French champions want €80 million and Ousmane Dembele for the 28-year-old forward.

Neymar left the Catalan giants for €222 million, a world record fee that smashed the previous record, in 2017 when the Ligue 1 side activated his release clause.

Barca replaced him with Dembele, signing the Frenchman from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million, with an extra €40 million in add ons, just a year after he moved to Germany for around €15 million.

Injuries and form have meant the move hasn't worked out for the former Rennes winger and this season he's only started three games in La Liga this season.

Griezmann has been criticised in his first season at the Nou Camp and once again the reigning La Liga champions are being linked with moves for forwards this summer.

Inter's Lautaro Martinez is their main target in the transfer window but there have been questions over if the Spanish side will pay the huge price for him.

However with Messi wanting Neymar, and the potential to get Dembele out of the squad, a move for the PSG forward might be more likely.

Barca may hope that signing Neymar will go some way to placating Messi, after claims the six time Ballon d'Or winner is ready to walk away from the club at the end of next season.

It's unlikely that they'll retain their league title this season but are still in the Champions League, but must overcome Napoli in the second leg of their last 16 tie.

Neymar and PSG are still chasing their first title in Europe, after easily defending their title in France, even with the season being curtailed.
