Barcelona want ‘to announce Neymar tomorrow’ with Brazil superstar set to finally complete return from PSG – The Sun
NEYMAR could be just 24 hours away from returning to Barcelona.
PSG are reportedly ready to accept a fee of £118 plus players, with Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Rakitic the likeliest targets.
And Barca are keen to tie up a deal for Brazil striker Neymar, 27, who has also been monitored by Real Madrid and Juventus, before the continental transfer window closes on Monday.
Spanish outlet El Chiringuito say the La Liga champs want to announce Neymar's arrival on Thursday, two summers after selling him to PSG for £198m.
And Barcelona director Javier Bordas told reporters in Spain: "We are getting closer."
It is understood one tricky hurdle remaining is the reluctance of Barca's France winger Dembele to move the other way.
PSG have been persistently linked with a loan swoop for the 22-year-old.
But Dembele's agent Moussa Sissoko said: "Ousmane stays 100 per cent. There is no chance he will leave. He wants and will win at Barca.”
Former Borussia Dortmund hero Dembele has, though, removed Barcelona from his Instagram page.
And Croatian wideman Rakitic, 31, seems more willing to depart the Nou Camp for France.
Barca's ex-Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho was a prime target for PSG but has now been loaned to Bayern Munich.
