Neymar transfer news: Barcelona offer PSG £90m plus choice of players

Brazilian’s potential return to the Camp Nou could impact Premier League summer transfer window

Barcelona’s “obsession” with re-signing Neymar could have an impact on transfer business in the Premier League this summer. 

The Spanish giants have reportedly offered Paris Saint-Germain £90m and the choice of their top stars in return for the Brazilian forward.

Sky Sports reports that the La Liga club have given PSG “a list of six players that could be included in the deal”. On the list are Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, Malcom and Samuel Umtiti.

Several of those players have been linked with moves to Premier League clubs in recent months, but could now find themselves heading to Paris whether they like it or not. 

On the flip side, the likes of Dembele, Rakitic and Umtiti may be less than impressed to find themselves expendable at the Camp Nou and seek an exit even if the Neymar deal falls through or PSG overlook them.

Coutinho has been linked with his old club Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea this summer, and Dembele has emerged as another possible target for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Malcom has already attracted interest from Arsenal and Everton, while Arsenal and United have reportedly been monitoring Umtiti.

This week it was also reported by The Sun that Neymar could in fact “open the door” on a move to Old Trafford. 

Man Utd have been put on red alert after Barcelona signed Antoine Griezmann for £108m. Griezmann’s move from Atletico Madrid could effectively rule Barca out of a deal for Neymar because of the £198m transfer fee that PSG are reportedly demanding. 

However, the Daily Express added that Barca could offer PSG a loan deal to bring Neymar back to the Camp Nou. Or as stated offer the French champions a cash-plus-players deal for the 27-year-old.
