PSG set huge Neymar price tag amidst Barcelona and Real Madrid interest
- The 27-year-old was linked with a move back to Barcelona in the summer.
- Real Madrid were also said to be interested.
- According to the latest reports from Marca, the Parisians will demand £258 million for the player.
According to the latest reports from the Marca, PSG will reportedly agree to sell Neymar if the £258 million price-tag is met.
The requested price is £58m more than PSG paid for the Brazil international in the 2017 summer transfer window. If either Barcelona or Real Madrid meet the reported price this will make the Samba player the most expensive footballer for the second time in just three years.
The Brazilian was keen on the Camp Nou comeback and even publicly stated his desire to move away from Parc des Princes. He ended up staying with the Parisians though, while Barcelona signed Antoine Griezmann.
Neymar's contract at PSG expires in 2022. The Ligue 1 champions are 'in no hurry' to offer him an extension.
Speaking to Associated Press on Monday, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said of a potential summer return for the Brazilian: "After what happened this past summer, (Neymar) is still with PSG. So we must have the utmost respect toward a club and its players."
