And according to ESPN, Barcelona have now made good their intentions to lure the forward away from France this summer.

However, PSG have rejected the bid which could have seen the player join the Camp Nou side on loan.

The Spanish team gave PSG an upfront amount of €40m cash for the loan with a future obligation of €150m to sign the Brazilian player permanently next year.

But the club’s Qatari owners are not happy with Neymar’s attitude this summer and are not willing to let him go.

PSG might sanction a move if they can get back up to the €222m they used in signing him from Barcelona in the summer of 2017.

This is in additiont to the French team’s notion that the La Liga kings will not be able to pay the transfer fee in one lump sum next summer should they make the move permanent and would ask to pay in annual installments which is not ideal for the French club.

Concise News had reported that Neymar is ready to take a pay slash to secure a return to Spanish giants Barcelona. 

Neymar has told PSG he wants a switch to Spain and is now willing to take a pay cut to the tune of 15 million euros (£13.7m).

Barcelona have made many offers for the Brazilian, including a 100m euros (£92.4m) plus Philippe Coutinho.

But the French side have turned them down and are waiting on them to top up the money.

“The player is happy to reduce his wages from 38 million euros net to 23 million euros net,” BBC’s Guillem Balague reported.

“It is an interesting situation at Barcelona. They feel they have to try really hard to get him back.

“Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez want him back but also the president Josep Maria Bartomeu has two more years in his mandate and he wants to leave a big legacy.

“Can you imagine all those players that have been mentioned and Neymar as well?”

Before their loss to Athletic Bilbao in their La Liga opener, Barca coach Ernesto Valverde had said he is unbothered by Neymar’s transfer debacle.

“Neymar belongs to PSG and we’ll see what happens,” he said, Thursday.
