Neymar’s days at Paris Saint-Germain are numbered right now, so it’s not a matter of if he’d be moved from the team, but when that’s going to happen.
Thus, both Real Madrid and Barcelona are fighting toe-to-toe as we speak to get a deal done for the Brazilian superstar, entertaining a bit of a bidding war for his services.
Barcelona had already offered Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho, but the French champions weren’t impressed by either of these players and eventually rejected their offer.
Moreover, Los Blancos offered them Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, but neither of them wanted to move to Paris, and the French Champions were wary of signing them as well.
And now, French outlet Telefoot claim Paris Saint-Germain has asked for a high price for their wantaway superstar, as they eye a move for Raphael Varane and Vinicius Jr.
According to the report, Florentino Perez and Real Madrid quickly backed out from the deal, as they value their youngsters way too much to part ways with both of them on the same transaction.
Varane and Vinicius are a huge part of Zidane’s project going forward, and they’ve already refused to include them on any potential offer for him or Paul Pogba.
As for Barcelona, the Catalans are allegedly trying to get Neymar Back for Ivan Rakitic and a sum close to €40 million, but the French champions are reportedly wary of that operation as well.
The clock is ticking and Neymar is not going to play for PSG again any time soon, as even the club supporters have turned their back on the Brazilian with jeers and insults.
Still, it looks like no team will be willing to risk a lot on any potential move for Neymar, as they’ll play the waiting game until PSG’s desperation force them to pull the trigger.
