Transfer Rumors: Barcelona Set To Use Surprising Star In Swap Deal For Neymar

Last season didn't end well for Barcelona, who started to work on their new signings as soon as the summer transfer window began. The Blaugrana are keen to bounce back and win everything they can next campaign. With Antoine Griezmann already announced as the new addition of the club, they are set to pursue their other top target for the summer.

It’s not a secret that rumors involving a potential reunion between Neymar Jr. and Barcelona have been very present in the last months, with the Brazilian star showing his discontent to Paris Saint-Germain after two seasons filled with injuries and off-field scandals.

Now, even though Barcelona’s hierarchy has stated that they aren’t planning on bringing Neymar back to the Camp Nou, rumors over a potential return of the forward to Catalonia increase, with the Spaniards reportedly willing to make it happen at all costs, even if they have to send players to Paris to try to unlock a potential negotiation.

Recent reports suggest that Barca have already picked the player that could ease the Neymar negotiation, and it’s not one of the priorly mentioned Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele or Samuel Umtiti.

According to Sport, Barcelona would be thinking of making one of their most reliable players in the last season part of the deal in order to lower Paris Saint-Germain asking price. Center-back Clement Lenglet is the one who could help the current La Liga champions to get their desired asset, even though the Frenchman has been a very important piece in Ernesto Valverde’s squad.

Still, Barcelona have been rumored to be keen to land Neymar and if they have to offload Lenglet, they probably will do it. The Brazilian is also trying to make his way back to Catalonia and the perfect moment to do so is now.
