Neymar was said to want to use FIFA rules to leave the capital Paris team

Neymar is also in the third year of his contract with PSG. After this season ends, the Brazilian striker will end his “protected period” so that he can apply “Article 17“, thereby unilaterally terminating his contract with the French team. According to Sport, if used this way, Barca will have to spend about 180 million euros in exchange for his service.

However, Barca said that 180 million euros is too much money. In the context of complicated developments, the European sports activities completely froze, which caused the clubs to be severely damaged due to a lack of ticket sales and television and advertising royalties. Recently, Barca had to call for stars to reduce wages to support the team.

Without using “Article about 17” and 180 million euros, Barca will have to sit at the table to discuss with PSG. It is widely believed that the Catalan club will use Antoine Griezmann as part of the deal to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp.

According to Marca, to recruit Neymar, Barca will have to sell 7-8 players to avoid violating the UEFA Financial Fair Law. The names on Barca’s liquidation list are likely Antoine Griezmann, Phillipe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti.

‘Barca needs Neymar more than Martinez’

Former player Rivaldo said Barca need to recruit Neymar to return to the top, while Lautaro Martinez is the plan for the future.

Former Rivaldo, who played for Barca in 1997-2002, hopes Barca’s management will do everything to bring him to the Nou Camp in the summer of 2020.
