Barcelona will attempt to sign PSG striker Neymar after the Parisians were knocked out of the Champions League semi-finals by Manchester City (0-2, first leg 1-2). Read more about Barcelona Transfer News here.
According to reports, Catalan club president Joan Laporta thinks the Brazilian’s relocation would benefit Barça. First and foremost, he would increase the popularity of the Barcelona name. Second, with more new players on the side, it would lift the team’s standard.
Finally, Neymar’s departure would affect Lionel Messi, who has yet to make a definitive statement on his future.
Barcelona’s players were able to take salary cuts to sign Neymar under former president Josep Bartomeu.
The Brazilian is worth €100 million to Barcelona. Barca claims that if they can sell any players, they will have that number. However, bringing the player back to Catalonia would be difficult. PSG is not about to let Neymar go quickly.
PSG’s latest contract with the forward expires in the summer of 2022. The parties are said to be close to extending the deal, as no new contract has been concluded.
