Close-to-PSG source unveils details of Barca and PSG's first official meeting
- The talks were reportedly held in a pleasant atmosphere and both parties even had time to laugh.
- However, there was a disagreement regarding PSG's demands.
- The club's coach Thomas Tuchel wishes to see Dembele as part of his squad.
- Barca have offered Coutinho and Rakitic + €100m as they see Ousmane as an important squad member.
As noticed by SoccerLink, the talks were accompanied by the parties' relaxed mood, and in general, there are now good vibes that Neymar will indeed return to his former club.
Barcelona have reportedly offered €100m and Philippe Coutinho + Ivan Rakitic in the deal. The Parisians' coach Thomas Tuchel was strongly in favour of bringing Ousmane Dembele instead of Rakitic, however, the Catalans refused to include Dembele due to his first-team commitments at Barca.
What concerns Rakitic, Leonardo personally wishes to see the Croatian in Tuchel's updated team and that may be the crucial point in the negotiations.
Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho is linked to a possible loan move to Bayern Munich, however, he could still play a major role in Neymar talks.
