Barcelona’s formal approach to PSG with a loan deal for Neymar with the option to sign him outrightly next season for 150 million euros has been rebuffed.
But the Parisians value Neymar for 250 million euros have rejected the bid and also want a guarantee that Neymar would be offered a permanent deal when his loan spell ends.
Barcelona are currently not in a good financial position to go for a big-money signing this summer after splashing their cash on the transfer of Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong, so a loan deal is what would let them land their former player back to the Camp Nou.
Both parties will continue talks in the next few days. An obligation to buy would make things complicated for Barcelona because they need to balance their books for the season.
