If recent reports are to be believed, then the Brazilian is most likely to stay at Paris after talks between the two clubs broke down.
The whole of 2019 has been filled with Neymar’s transfer saga. At one point it seemed the player was destined to go back to Camp Nou. However, with new reports, Neymar’s dream to reunite with Messi will have to wait another year. Barcelona was desperate to sign Neymar this summer but PSG is adamant on their demands.
They have rejected multiple offers from the Catalans. PSG want Dembele included as a permeant deal but Barcelona is only ready to loan the player. Neymar could also move to Real Madrid but hat deal has its own faults and clauses.
Here are 3 other players that Barcelona can look for as a replacement for Neymar:-
1. Julian Draxler
Also a PSG player, Draxler was called by many a promising talent. The German has been very useful for the French giants until the arrival of Neymar and Mbappe. There has made it very difficult for him to break into the first team. There is no doubt, Draxler has a lot of potential and Barcelona can make use of it.
The former Schalke star can play on the left as an inside and unleash the attacking side of his game at Catalonia. He would also cost far less than Neymar, which means that the operation to bring him in would be easier. Draxler has also been linked with Juve this summer. Only 25, Draxler is young and can be a vital player for any club he plays for. The player would cost Barcelona anywhere to the north of 50 million Euros.
2. Marco Reus
This is not the first time Barcelona would be pursuing the Dortmund captain. If injuries didn’t exist, Marco Rues definitely be a world-class player, one of the best in the world. many clubs have tried approaching the player but he has remained loyal to BVB, unlike many of their prodigies. He can score and create goals and is an excellent worker. He would also cost less. Although he probably won’t leave the club, Barcelona might be able to tempt him out of Germany.
3. Ousmane Dembele
Barcelona really doesn’t need Neymar or a replacement if they consider the fact that they have Ousmane Dembele. Dembele is probably one of the most talented youngsters in the world right now. The former Dortmund player is considered a replacement for Messi by many people.
Although, there is some tension going in between the player and club. Dembele has insane dribbling skills and can shoot equally well with both his feet. A rare skill. Barcelona is ready to send Dembele on loan to PSG in case they land Neymar but PSG want a permanent deal for the Frenchman.
Dembele has been involved in 33 goals in 68 appearances he has made for Barcelona. His development and game time have been halted due to injuries but the Catalans are hopeful this year would be lucky for him.
All these deals seem unlikely given the fact that the transfer Market closes today!! However, Barcelona would look to appear the players in the January transfer. Stay Tuned for updates.
