Barcelona plan to raid the Premier League for a replacement for Neymar.
The Mirror says PSG are closing in on a world record £200 million for Neymar with Barcelona chiefs increasingly convinced that he wants out – and believing now may be right to let him go.
Philippe Coutinho is top of Barcelona’s wanted list if they lose his Brazil international teammate, and Liverpool have been desperately fighting interest from the Catalan giants, so far resisting all approaches.
Barcelona need the Neymar cash to bid for Coutinho who they see as successor to Andres Iniesta whose contract expires next summer.
And as potential replacements for Neymar, Barca would look at Tottenham’s Dele Alli and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, who has made no secret of his desire to one day play in Spain.
