Where will Neymar end up this season?
Spanish journalist Guillem Balagué has given an update on both Real Madrid and Barcelona’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
The Brazilian has been in the headlines for a number of weeks now.
However, he also admitted that PSG doesn’t want to let him go.
Since then, rumours have only escalated.
PSG sporting director Leonardo recently claimed that ‘Talks are more advanced than before, but no agreement.’
There’s also been talk of swap deals involving Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Now, Spanish journalist Guillem Balagué has an update.
Real Madrid and Barcelona both ‘in the equation’
According to the La Liga reporter on Twitter, both Real Madrid and Barcelona are still in the frame to sign Neymar.
He claims that Barcelona currently have offered €100m and Coutinho, but that deal was not accepted.
Real Madrid have also made an offer for Neymar, which includes Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and cash.
The offer from #FCB is so far Coutinho and €100m. Not accepted by PSG
Real Madrid has made an offer too. Money and players (James, Bale). PSG want different players.

In this case, PSG want different players included in the deal.
Interestingly, Balagué reveals that PSG’s preference is actually to sell to Real Madrid, despite both clubs being in the frame.
Finally, Balagué claims that Neymar does not want to return to the Paris side this summer, with the Brazilian having seemingly not returned to PSG yet.
It looks as though this transfer saga could go all the way up to deadline day.
