Paris: Neymar took part in training for Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday afternoon but will again not play for the French champions this weekend amid reports that an agreement had been reached that would see the Brazilian return to Barcelona. In the two meetings held in Paris, Barcelona tried to reduce that figure by including a handful of players, including Rakitic, Dembele and Jean-Clair Todibo, but it did not seem to be enough.
"The first time we received a proposal from Barcelona for Neymar was on Aug 27". However, PSG were not ready to drop below 150 million euros.
Mount and Barkley named in England squad
Burnley's Nick Pope has been recalled to the England squad for next month's UEFA European Championship qualifiers. During his career, he has played in attacking midfield, defensive midfield and even at wing-back.
Club director Javier Bordas declared earlier this week that Barca were "getting closer" to sealing the transfer, but Leonardo said on Friday that "there is no agreement because our demands haven't been accepted". But it would represent a good return for a player who's proven unable to stay healthy or lift PSG to the Champions League heights it wants to hit.
The Brazil worldwide has been strongly linked with a return to Camp Nou during this summer's transfer window, while Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest.
Neymar is about to rejoin Barcelona.
If the deal does go through he will also team up with fellow new-boy Antoine Griezmann who completed a £108million move from Atletico Madrid during the summer.
