Barcelona are not abandoning their attempts to bring back PSG striker Neymar, who was knocked out of the Champions League semi-finals with the Parisians yesterday after losing to Manchester City. This was reported by AS.
According to the source, the idea of bringing back the 29-year-old Brazilian comes from Blaugranas president Joan Laporta, who intends to make a high-profile transfer next summer.
According to Laporta, Neymar’s arrival will help Barcelona add value to the club’s brand, strengthen the team with young players and have a positive impact on Blaugranas captain Lionel Messi, who has yet to sign a new contract.
Barcelona value Neymar at €100 million, but even for that amount, the Parisians will not just give their leader away and the deal will be incredibly difficult.
Previously, it was reported that Neymar is close to renewing his contract with PSG. His current deal runs until the summer of 2022.
