Barcelona have offered to take Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain on a loan deal with an option to make the move permanent next summer.
Barcelona had hoped to include Philippe Coutinho to Paris Saint-Germain as a makeweight, but he instead has been loaned to Bayern Munich. Barcelona will try to replicate Bayern's strategy with Neymar and PSG.
Barca don't have huge sums of money to spend, having already spent more than €200m this summer on Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie De Jong, Junior Firpo and Neto.
Barcelona offered €80 million plus Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic. PSG countered with €120 million plus Coutinho and Semedo.
Barca have not given up on signing Neymar even though high-ranking officials have told ESPN FC "it will be complicated," especially given the threat of Real Madrid.
