Barcelona ‘to include Ousmane Dembele in third Neymar bid’
Barcelona are reportedly preparing a third bid for Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar, with Ousmane Dembele set to be offered to the French champions as a makeweight.
Neymar’s future remains the subject of much speculation as the Brazil international prepares to leave PSG before the European transfer window closes on September 2.
Barca continue to be linked with the 27-year-old, while Real Madrid are also said to be desperate to bring the Brazil international to the Bernabeu over the next couple of weeks.
According to ESPN FC, having had two bids rejected, Barca are now preparing to include Dembele in a cash-plus-player deal as the Spanish champions look to come to an agreement with Thomas Tuchel’s side.
The report claims that Dembele would be available for transfer this summer despite the attacker’s agent recently insisting that the Frenchman would not be leaving Camp Nou.
The 22-year-old, who is currently on the sidelines with another hamstring problem, has scored 18 times and registered 17 assists in 66 appearances for Barca in all competitions.
Madrid, though, have allegedly sent representatives to Paris as they look to secure Neymar’s signature in what would be a stunning capture.
