It’s a fact that Neymar Jr won’t continue to play for Paris Saint-Germain and it’s just a matter of time before the French club sends him elsewhere before the transfer window closes.
Barcelona are determined to bring the disturbed star back to Camp Nou at all costs, but PSG’s officials have constantly rejected their bids for the Brazilian superstar.
Apparently, the French champions are reluctant to let him go unless they already have a replacement, thus the Catalans are trying to orchestrate several moves to help all the pieces fall in place.
So, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported that the Blaugrana met with Juventus’ officials in order to work on a deal that could send Ivan Rakitic in return for Emre Can, while also leaving discussing a possible move for Luis Suarez.
Thing is, Suarez joining Juventus would open up the door for Paulo Dybala to join Paris Saint-Germain, thus forcing the French club to let go of Neymar Jr.
Rakitic isn’t a part of Ernesto Valverde’s plans going forward and the Croatian midfielder has been linked with a move to the Bianconeri for quite some time.
As for Suarez, the Catalans were never interested in parting ways with him, but his recent injury and his age have raised some concerns at Camp Nou.
Also, they’re keen to prevent Real Madrid from getting Neymar Jr before the window closes. Therefore, they know letting go of Suarez could be the only way the could bring back Neymar.
Neymar Jr has been facing a lot of hate from PSG fans lately. They’ve insulted him and urged him to leave the club following his antics and reported lack of commitment.
Making a move for him right now seems like a major risk given his proneness to get hurt and off-court antics, but there’s no denying he’s one of the most talented players in the world.
