Philippe Coutinho

The agent of Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho, Kia Joorabchian, is in Paris to negotiate a possible deal for his client according to Spanish media outlet Sport.

Barcelona have concluded plans to offer Philippe Coutinho as part of the deal for Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar.

It was revealed that Barcelona’s director of football Eric Abidal, Barcelona board member Javier Bordas and Neymar’s intermediary Andre Cury are all in Paris as the parties involved are keen to end the long-running transfer saga relating to Brazilian international Neymar.

The PSG attacker has told club bosses that he wants to leave the French capital outfit this summer.

PSG and Barcelona still has two weeks to get the deal for Neymar over the line.

The European transfer window ends at the start of next month.

Real Madrid were also interested in signing Neymar but the Brazilian is only keen to return to Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona.

Neymar was formerly on the payroll at Barcelona before PSG paid the €222m release clause in his then contract at the club two years ago.

The aforementioned publication revealed that Barcelona will turn to the likes of Ivan Rakitic and Nelson Semedo as options for the swap deal if ex-Liverpool midfielder Coutinho rejects the offer from PSG.
