Barcelona have stepped up their interest in Neymar with a €60million (£55m) plus Philippe Coutinho offer for the want away Paris Saint-Germain star.
Neymar left the Spanish giants for PSG back in 2017, in a world record £189m switch but is keen on a return to Barca before the European summer transfer window slams shut on September 2.
PSG, however, are reluctant to do business with Barcelona and, having accepted that Neymar’s future is best served away from Paris, would rather sell him to Real Madrid.
Relations between PSG and Barca soured after Neymar left Spain for France two years ago, with reports recently suggesting that the transfer may well have already happened had the potential suitor been another club other than Barca.
This latest development comes after reports emerged that Lionel Messi has stepped in to attempt Neymar to complete his Barcelona return this summer rather than join Real Madrid .
