Barcelona have struggled of late to make any significant signings. Of late, most good players have only seen the door. Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann have left the club this summer, and more exits are set to happen in the following summer. With regards to transfers to the club, rumours are few but significant.
The most crucial transfer perhaps is that of Neymar Junior. As per reports relayed by El Nacional, PSG boss Al Khelaifi has surprised Joan Laporta. He is reportedly willing to sell Neymar to Barcelona but through intermediaries.
PSG want to part ways with him because he has not been very convincing. In Ligue 1, he has just three goals in over a thousand minutes.
In the Champions League, where they need him most, he has not yet scored for the Parisians. This is one aspect leading them to want him out. His off-field troubles also influence this decision.
Moreover, Al Khelaifi wants to do his best to keep Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman wants to leave the former French champions. He made this clear this past summer and wants to go to Real Madrid with whatever means necessary.
On the probability that Mbappe does change his mind, Neymar needs to be gotten rid of because they cannot sustain their wages. This is, after all, a squad with Lionel Messi, among other heavyweights.
As for Barça, they remain uninterested. As far as they are concerned, their chapter with the Brazilian is well and truly over. They already cannot afford his transfer fee of €80 Million, let alone his salary. Barcelona is starting a new project which he simply has no part in.
