Barça will try for the second consecutive summer to sign Neymar Jr. The Catalans tried their luck a few months ago, but collided with a wall called PSG, which rejected all the proposals that came from Barcelona
The return of Neymar Jr to the FC Barcelona could go back to be a very real possibility. The Brazilian already was near of the group barcelonista this past summer, although finally Paris Saint-Germain frustrated the negotiation. The team blaugrana launched in no uncertain terms to by the extreme and Javier Embroider, director; Òscar Grau, CEO of the Barça, and Éric Abidal, the technical secretary of the Catalans, even travelled to Paris to speak in people with the Parisians.
The Barcelona pretended the turn of the now '10' of the PSG to a price of market that could allow credit. The culés thought that the international by the 'canarinha' had devaluated after the last two campaigns and that would cost much less money, but did not go like this. The PSG refused traspasar to his big star by an inferior quantity to the 222 millions that paid by him in 2017, and the comitiva of the Barcelona had to return home with the empty hands.
But in spite of the "no", the feelings of the Barça were not bad. Leonardo, sportive director of the French club, did not show reacio to sell to the Brazilian, something that liked to Embroider, Grau and Abidal. There was hope and therefore the Catalans decided to go up his offer and throw the all by the all by the attacker. Only a day afterwards, Josep Maria Bartomeu saw with Nasser To the-Khelaïfi in Monaco for the draw of the phase of groups of the Champions League and there was another more promising negotiation.
As it affirms 'Sportive World', the president barcleonista offered 130 millions more Ivan Rakitic and Jean-Clair Todibo, in addition to the cession of Ousmane Dembélé. The offer liked enough in the picture Frenchman, that posed it, but at the end the answer went back to be "no". Hardly they were missing some days for the closing of the market of signings and was complicated to square an operation of these dimensions. Rakitic Was not very by the work to go to the Park of the Princes and Dembélé neither to do the cases of Barcelona, something that was decisive so that the PSG decided to withdraw.

Now, a lot of months after this episode, Neymar goes back to sound with strength for the Barça. In this occasion, the Parisians could see forced to sell him by a reasonable price by a rule of the FIFA. It says also that even they would be posing undo of him by some 150 million euros. It was as it was, everything indicates that the culés will go back to the load in what it open this market.
The fight for attaining the turn of the Brazilian began the past summer and will go back a year afterwards. Luckily, this time the Barcelona play with advantage, since now they know that Ney yes has a price. In the negotiation of Monaco, To the-Khelaïfi showed that yes it would sell to the 'crack' in return of a seductive proposal. This was the first taking of contact and in July will begin the second and the Barça expects that definite second 'round'.
