PSG willing to include Neymar in deal for Barcelona star

PSG willing to include Neymar in deal for Barcelona star

Reports stemming from Spain suggest FC Barcelona could reunite with one of their former star players, Neymar, as part of a deal for one of their current players.

Frenkie de Jong & Barcelona

That player is said to be Frenkie de Jong.

De Jong would sign for FC Barcelona back in the summer of 2019.

The Spanish powerhouse are understood to have paid around £77m to bring the midfielder to the Camp Nou on the back of a starring campaign, in which he helped Ajax reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

Since his move to Catalonia, though, De Jong has struggled to showcase the abilities that made him such a desirable asset for Barcelona in the first place.

PSG to offer Neymar for De Jong?

Despite this, though, the aforementioned reports stemming from Spain suggest that PSG are looking to pull out all the stops to land the Dutchman.

El Nacional report that PSG would be willing to put up €50m for De Jong. This is €40m less than what Barca are believed to want for the midfielder.

However, the report also adds that PSG would be willing to put up Neymar, who the Parisian side are said to be fed up with, as part of the deal:

The French club is willing to pay up to 50 million for the Dutchman , which Barça do not accept at first as they are far from the 90s it could negotiate. But the name that appears in the background is that of Neymar Jr. , whom Nasser Al-Khelaïfi would be willing to include in the operation as they are fed up with his figure and all that it entails.

If this is indeed true, then should Barca be considering the deal? Attack is certainly one of La Blaguarna’s weakest areas at present whereas, in midfield, they have a lot of promising young talent such as Pedri, Gavi and Nico Gonzalez.

So, though De Jong is a top player, maybe it is worth letting him leave as, without a swap deal, it is hard to see Barcelona being able to come close to affording someone like Neymar.
