Rumour Has It: PSG keep reducing Neymar asking price in boost for Barcelona

0:00

We round up the front and back pages across Europe as Sunday sees the transfer rumour mill crank into gear again.

Neymar's return to Barcelona may be getting closer as Paris Saint-Germain seemingly accept the star is set to leave.

Neymar, 27, is heavily linked with a return to Camp Nou, two years after his world-record €222 million (A$360 million) move to PSG.

PSG reportedly set an asking price of €300 million (A$460 million) for Neymar, but that has apparently continued to reduce, increasing the chances of the Brazil star heading back to Barcelona.

From €300 million to €222 million to €130 million plus two Barcelona players?

Le Parisien report PSG would be willing to accept the latter offer for Neymar as they continue to soften their demands.

The report says PSG would settle for somewhere between €130 million and €150 million plus two players, with Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti all talked about.
