Transfer Roundup: PSG and Barcelona in Neymar talks, Man Utd want £75 million for Lukaku, Juventus close in on Rabiot

Neymar wants Nou Camp return

According to SPORT, Barcelona and PSG have begun talks over the return of the Brazilian to Spain.

With PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi giving no certainty over the forward’s future and the sensational Kylian Mbappe overshadowing his status as the ‘main man’, all fingers are pointing towards an exit from the Parc Des Princes for Neymar.

The Parisians are demanding €300 million to give them a significant return on the world record signing, who joined only 3 seasons ago from Catalonia. Barcelona are reluctant to pay the staggering fee to revive the MSN trio instead reportedly offering €100 million and out of favour attacker Phillipe Coutinho.

The Blaugrana may also add Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti to the deal to tempt PSG into releasing their prized asset. Resigning the 27 year old would almost certainly signal the end for at least one of Barca’s surplus of attackers, whether it be Coutinho, Dembele or Malcom.

Lukaku can leave Old Trafford for correct fee

Romelu Lukaku’s future alongside a handful of Manchester United’s first team players remains uncertain, with Sky Sports News reporting they would listen to offers that match their valuation.

The Belgian had a tough season with the Red Devils last season, with just 12 goals in the Premier League and starting games on the bench for new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He has expressed his admiration for new Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte and the Nerazzurri have been reportedly interested in bringing Lukaku to Serie A.

Conte previously tried to sign the former Everton striker during his tenure at Chelsea, but instead signed Alvaro Morata. It seems like the perfect match for both parties, yet United will want to recuperate the £75 million they paid for the 26 year old in 2017, with a cash only deal.

Rabiot’s Juventus contract ‘agreed’

After constantly clashing with manager Thomas Tuchel and refusing a new contract in Paris, it seems like Adrien Rabiot’s move away from PSG is almost done.

Calciomercato report that the Frenchman will sign a contract that will see him earn an impressive €7 million a year with a €10 million signing on fee. The acquisition of Rabiot on a free transfer may signal the end of the Bianconeri’s pursuit of former midfielder Paul Pogba, who’s £150 million asking price may be too much for the Italian champions.

Rabiot’s exit from the Parc Des Princes is not short of controversy, with a handful of high profile incidents making people question the midfielder’s attitude and desire rather than his talent.

Turning up late to training, liking social media posts celebrating his side’s defeat and going to a nightclub after being knocked out of the Champions League don’t exactly set a precedent for a strong working relationship between new manager Maurizio Sarri and the rebellious French international. Only time will tell if he is a success or not for the Old Lady.

  1. Adrien Rabiot is on the verge of becoming Juventus latest superb free transfer! Good job Valverde! We deserved the coach we have!

  2. why manutd don’t propose to PSG that they give them paul pogba and some $$ in return for neymar. so they can sell lukaku at the same time. or maybe they can give 2 player in return for neymar? isn’t that easier and i am pretty sure it will goes down well with the fans especially juve and real won’t get the player they wanted this time !

    • Neymer will not come to OldTrafford.
      We don’t have the quality of players to make a bargain with. Barca will not even afford Neymer cos they’re not making sales.. and they’ll not return the money easily for Neymer.
      Messi, who is the reason Neymer left Barça, is still balling. The best destination for Neymer who wants to shine, is Real Madrid where he’s bound to be the super 🌟. Problem is, Real Madrid has spent a lot of money.. and are supposing nobody is having cash to buy Neymer now. So in 1 year, they can make him the most expensive player again if he keeps form.. or they get Mbappe. Mbappe better.. cos age is not on Neymer’s side anymore

  3. You are all in deep sleep, Neymar is not only wanting to return home, but to properly correct the errors he made in the first place. So if you are dreaming of Neymar going to Madrid, then it’s surely a bad dream. You will certainly wake up to the opposite.
    WELCOME HOME NEYMAR…..

  4. Seeing Naymar at Barcelona again will make the club famous in winning the champions league next season, but with the exit of Coutino and Dembele means that there will be no possible replacement for Messi and Naymar which is not too good for the club.
