Barcelona are not getting their hands on Neymar anytime soon, according to Marca.
The Coronavirus pandemic is bound to hit the transfer coffers of all European clubs, no matter how big one might be.
Barcelona are no different, coming off two seasons of extravagant spendings on players like Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. It will be hard to expend another £200m without breaking Financial Fair Play regulations.
Neymar had already tried to force his way out of PSG last summer, submitting a transfer request and skipping pre-season training. Barcelona ended up signing Griezmann and could not agree on a fee with the Parisians. However, they were thought to be still plotting a return trip for the 28-year-old.
He left for €222m in 2017 and PSG will look to recoup most of the sum they paid for him. The struggles for Barca is considerably in return for their expected reward. Neymar is no longer the same player that he once was. His injury record over the past few seasons will make you question the return on such massive investment.
On the other hand, one club who can pay PSG their asking price might be Newcastle United. Their new billionaire owners from the Middle East are planning on a complete squad overhaul of top stars in European football.
