It does time that the market of signings is a very hot period for Neymar, and the one of the summer 2020 does not go to be an exception. The ex the Saints has an agreement that extends until 2022 and that ties him to the PSG, but very shortly after his unexpected escape comprised and did not take in admitting that abandon the FC Barcelona was a very grave error. Although it will be very complicated to amend it, the forward has not lost the faith.

The novelties on the negotiations by his traspaso aim to that there are not negotiations, at least, for the moment. The Brazilian has moved threads along the course and already did it in the past window estival, when there were conversations but no deal between both entities. This year, the French do not close him the door although they will not go down his price and the Catalans pretend him but have not marked him like priority.

The subject has cooled because of the crisis of the coronavirus, that has changed the rules of the game and has shaken the international panorama. The more than 100 million euros that demands the champion of Tie it 1 are impossible, and no only by the one of Sao Paulo, but by any one. In his place will have to expect a year more, with the devaluation that this would comport, apurar the options of renewal or explore more alternative.

And of face to the scores that already foresee in September and October by Neymar, the 'bleus' study several names in Barcelona key. His pretences have gone varying but never have gone down of the madness, what supposes a message that underlines that Leonardo will not give to a star by which paid 222 millions. But if the player presiona and tightens the need, the exchange could put on the table.

The interests of the PSG in a barter by Neymar

Ivan Rakitic

The PSG has followed closely to Ivan Rakitic in the last years, but neither he neither the Barça gave his seen well to the offers. It does two seasons spoke of an offensive that would situate between 60 and 80 millions, a quantity that now the culés throw in fault. To his 32 years, the Croat is about to to close a cycle, and sees with strengths as to keep in the European elite. It remains him a year of agreement and has warned that it will be he same the one who choose his destination, by what the Parisians would have to sell him well his project. His valuation round the 20 million euros.

Samuel Umtiti

The same that in the medullary, the French could face a reform forced in the saga, and Samuel Umtiti answers to several needs. His nationality and his condition of champion of the world turn him into an interesting bet for suceder to a historical like Thiago Silva, although his fragility is an obstacle for any one. The group that directs Thomas Tuchel can assume his high wage without inmutarse, but is not clear that play it to him by a central that has not had continuity from 2018, and by which would ask no less than 30 million euros.

Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho already has been in several occasions in the orbit of the 'bleus', and now is to the bandage. To his favour play his quality contrasted, his experience in the big leagues and to international level, and by profile could be a good spare -although no exact-, for Neymar. Between the problems stand out his irregularity in the last campaigns and that precisely, his main valedor was his compatriot. In spite of everything, is an interesting piece for a barter, since his assessment rises until the 80 million euros.

Ousmane Dembélé

Ousmane Dembélé Is a similar case to the of Umtiti, but obviously related with the offensive plot. Talent, experience, youth and nationality to the service of the club dominador of France, but a record of injuries that scares to any team, already was big, average or small. Like Coutinho, his profile is not treaded but yes seemed to the of the ex of the Saints, by what could take into account this point and his age, since with 23 years has margin for reconducir his career. His valuation also is of the highest, and rondaría the 80 million euros.


The exchange is complicated because it has to satisfy to the Barça, to the PSG and to the cracks involved, no only to Neymar. In the last months have sounded more names, as the one of Arthur that finally it will go to the Juventus, Antoine Griezmann that in principle will not move of the Camp Nou or Jean-Clair Todibo whose future is for defining. In any case, the time will say if this operation is feasible or goes back to remain in a wish for fulfilling, since the priority is Lautaro Martínez and the clubs clear balloons when they ask after them the subject.
