PSG Turn Down Swap Deal For Chelsea Target

French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have turned down a swap deal for star player Neymar according to the latest reports from the Spanish media.

Chelsea target Neymar wants to return to Barcelona this summer after two years in Paris.

According to the specific report from Spanish publication AS, PSG are adamant that Neymar won’t leave the club this summer for anything less than the €222m (£200m).

Barcelona offered €40m plus the attacking duo of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele and it was rejected by PSG immediately.

Coutinho and Dembele have not been able to light up the Nou Camp since their respective big money transfers to Barcelona.

Philippe Coutinho signed for Barcelona from Premier League club Liverpool at the start of last year, while Ousmane Dembele joined the Catalans from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Barcelona are willing to let the two players join PSG in exchange for Neymar who has publicly admitted that he should not have left the Nou Camp in 2017.

He became the most expensive player in world football after PSG activated the €222m release clause in his then contract at Barcelona.

Since his move to Paris, Neymar has scored 51 goals for his French club.
