RAC1: Barca representatives flying to Paris for Neymar negotiations, offer details revealed
- Barca are allegedly set to finish the Neymar deal soon and are flying to Paris.
- Board members Grau, Bordas, Abidal and transfer representative Curry have reportedly boarded a private jet.
- Allegedly, the offer is an one-year loan with a €170m buy option.
- PSG are likely to ask for €100m plus Dembele and Semedo.
With six more days until the transfer window shuts, Barcelona must hurry up in the Neymar saga if they do want to bring the player back to Camp Nou. As reported previously, the Catalans are set to make their third official offer for the Brazilian.
And as highly-credible source Gerard Romero from RAC1 reports, club officials have already boarded a private jet and are set to land in Paris later today. According to the update, the representatives sent by the club are Oscar Grau (executive director), Javier Bordas (board member), Eric Abidal (director of football) and Andre Cury (technical adviser).
According to Cope, Barcelona plan to offer a one-year loan with a €170m buy option next year. However, Guillem Balague from BBC claims that Paris Saint-Germain want more than that. Reportedly, the Parisians counteroffer will be €100m plus Ousmane Dembele and Nelson Semedo.
Although Ney's future remains in air, his current exclusion from the squad could hint at his inevitable exit.
Diario AS quote PSG's coach Tuchel as saying: "The aim is for this to be over as soon as possible. Unfortunately, that wasn’t today [on Sunday, against Toulouse]. It’s time for him to play."
Still, the German specialist is determined to bring Neymar back in the squad as soon as possible. He openly states after Sunday night's Toulouse match that he would have played the Brazilian and wants his future settled quickly.
Tuchel explicitly blames PSG new sporting director Leonardo for not allowing Neymar to play: "Leonardo knows I want things sorted out and for him to stay, but that depends on him. The situation isn’t very clear right now and we need to sort it out. It’s always important for him to play."
