PSG did not accept the last offer of FC Barcelona by Neymar Jr, but the negotiations are still very much alive. The Parisians would have presented a counter offer to try to get more money for the Brazilian striker
The maximum leaders of Paris Saint-Germain and of the FC Barcelona coincided this past Thursday in the draw of the phase of groups of the Champions League. Several informations signalled that Josep Maria Bartomeu meeting with Nasser To the-Khelaïfi in Monaco to argue the signing of Neymar Jr, but Sportive World has denied it.
It seems that there was not any meeting between the presidents of both clubs and both only coincided in the strategic commission of the UEFA beside the rest of leaders. The quoted newspaper ensures that the PSG the only that did this Thursday was to try convince to Ivan Rakitic, Ousmane Dembélé and Jean-Clair Todibo so that they went in in the operation of the Brazilian.
It seems that the Parisians could not convince to any of the three, since they do not want to move of the Camp Nou. After seeing the difficulty that comported the offer of the Barça by the refusal of the footballers, the Parisians decided to refuse it. But MD informs that that was not the last movement of the conjoint Frenchman, since they decided to do a contraoferta still for determining to follow with the negotiations.
For the moment, it does not know at all of this contraoferta of the PSG, but seems that it is much more elevated in economic terms. If it can not have players of by half, the normal is that the Frenchmen ask much more of the 130 million euros that offered the Barcelona in his last proposal. Another option, would be to have asked to other footballers to complete the traspaso, but the reality is that leaving to a side to Rakitic, Dembélé and Todibo, there is not a lot of culés that can go in in the traspaso.
Nélson Semedo Is very of the taste of the Parisians, but the Barça does not want to give off of him. Samuel Umtiti could be another option, but equal that happens with Dembélé or Rakitic, neither wants to leave. If the Barça does not attain that the players change to seem, will have to pay the signing of Neymar to the explained. The barcelonistas do not have so much money and is therefore by what follow exploring other roads.
Neymar Will not play this weekend
That the PSG is had to be followed negotiating with the Barça by Ney remains clear when seeing that the Brazilian has gone back to remain out of the list of Tuchel for the party of this weekend. The extreme will not play with the team of the capital of France until the closing of the market. His future is an incógnita and in the days that are missing so that it finish the market of signings could happen anything.
