Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have submitted their first offer for wantaway Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar as confirmed by the latest reports emanating from the Spanish media.

Long-term Chelsea target Neymar has set his sights on leaving PSG this summer after two years in the French capital.

Neymar came close to joining West London giants Chelsea in 2013 before he signed for Barcelona.

According to the specific report from Spanish news outlet Sport, the Catalan giants have made a swap bid for the Brazilian international star.

It was revealed that Barcelona have made an offer of €100m plus midfielder Philippe Coutinho who’s rated at €100m thus making the whole bid €200m.

Barcelona want to re-sign Neymar this summer after two years with the French Ligue 1 club.

The ex-Santos player signed for PSG in 2017 after his controversial exit from Barcelona.

The Spanish champions were reluctant to let him leave the Nou Camp during the 2017 summer transfer window but they were almost handicapped after PSG activated the €220m release clause in his then Barcelona contract.

He spent four years at Barcelona upon his move from Brazilian Serie A club Santos in 2013.

Long-term Manchester United target Neymar is keen to reunite with the Barcelona front duo of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

They were known as the MSN (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) during his time at Barcelona.

The lethal front trio played a crucial role for Barcelona as they won the 2015 Champions League title.
