Neymar saga

The story surrounding the future of world’s most expensive player Neymar has been one of the talking points of the summer transfer window so far.

The Brazilian attacker has been hotly-tipped for a Parc des Princes departure, just 2 years on from his 222 million Euro arrival from Barcelona.

The Blaugrana, meanwhile, have, to this point, been the outfit most persistently-touted as a potential destination.

Despite having already added Antoine Griezmann to their star-studded attack this summer, Barca are said to be eyeing one more signing up top.

Additionally, Neymar’s fellow countryman, Philippe Coutinho, departed the Camp Nou for Bayern Munich earlier today.

And, as per a number of reports across the European media this evening, the Catalans are set to launch their latest assault to coax Neymar back to the club this week.

Barcelona are said to be readying a loan proposal, which could then be made permanent next summer:

Dybala swap?

The outfit named as the Blaugrana’s most serious competitors for Neymar’s signature to this point in the summer, meanwhile, have been La Liga rivals Real Madrid.

As per a report from reliable Brazilian outlet Globoesporte, though, a new suitor have tonight entered the fray.

The club in question are Serie A powerhouse Juventus.

The interest of the Bianconeri comes amid PSG’s long-standing links to Paulo Dybala.
