Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar Jr. could still move to Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona according to his agent and father Neymar Sr.

He made this known at a Sports conference in Edinburgh.

According to him, Negotiations for his client are still ongoing.

Neymar Sr. said the desire of his son is to return to Barcelona.

The player has three years left on his contract with PSG having joined them from Spanish champions Barcelona in the summer of 2017.

The Brazilian national team talisman became the most expensive player ever as a result of the transfer from Barcelona to PSG.

He left Barcelona in a controversial way after PSG paid the €220m release clause in his then contract at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona tried to re-sign him before the European transfer window ended last week but they were unable to come up with the funds needed for the transfer.

Neymar has not played for PSG this season as he recovers from the ankle injury sustained during an international friendly between Brazil and Panama in July.

He missed the 2019 COPA America triumph by the Brazilian national team as a result of that injury.

The player made a goalscoring return for Brazil during the 2-2 draw with Colombia last week.

Ousmane Dembele

The English Premier League defending champions Liverpool seem not to be done with the summer transfer window as they are reported to be planning to hijack Man United’s bid for the service of Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

Ousmane Dembele has continued to be linked away from the Spanish giants to the English Premier League but there are claims that Barcelona are not willing to let him go.

Both Man United and Arsenal have been linked with Ousmane Dembele in the past but none have been able to win his signature.

Man United will hope to land Ousmane Dembele as a replacement for their top target Jadon Sancho as they cannot meet the fee for the Borussia Dortmund player.

However, the Red Devils could make a move for the Barcelona man who has struggled to make a mark at Camp Nou since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

While the quality of the French forward is known to all clubs, but his injury situation that has been consistent and contributed to his inability to make a mark in Barcelona could scare suitors away.

Howbeit, Liverpool are reported to be in contact with Ousmane Dembele’s agent, according to Sport, and could strike a deal before the summer transfer window ends.

Manchester United lost their league opener last weekend as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Crystal Palace and Swedish international Victor Lindelof was at fault for the three goals conceded.

Lindelof partnered club-record signing Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence during the Palace game.

Apart from Todibo, Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano etc. have all been mentioned as a possible centre back signing at Manchester United.

Jean-Clair Todibo has suffered from a lot of injury problems in recent seasons but his quality is not in doubt as he showed during his loan spell at Schalke 04 in the German top flight.

Arsenal are eyeing a late loan move for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho according to the publication from Spanish outlet SPORT.
