Transfer news: Talks between Barcelona and PSG over Neymar 'have reached an impasse'
Aug. 12, 2019
Negotiations between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain over Neymar's possible return to the Nou Camp 'have reached an impasse'.
The French club are willing to let the Brazilian star leave this summer, with Barcelona and Real Madrid the two potential destinations.
But PSG are reportedly stalling the talks by demanding the exchange of three players in addition to a considerable amount of cash.
According to Diario Sport, these demands have seen talks between PSG and Barcelona break down, making Real the favourites to sign the 27-year-old.
Barcelona, the newspaper reports, believe that PSG are being unnecessarily difficult with their demands and want to put them off.
The Nou Camp club do, however, remain in talks with PSG for the time being and have also been in contact with Neymar to sound out the player.
But the feeling is that Neymar would have to make a personal plea to the French champions' hierarchy in order to accelerate the process.
Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 matches for Barcelona during four appearances there between 2013 and 2017, helping them win two league titles and the Champions League.
