PSG open to Neymar loan deal with obligation to buy

Paris Saint-Germain is open to the idea of a loan deal for Neymar, with a subsequent obligation to buy, as the Brazilian continues to seek a way out of Parc des Princes.

Neymar has been at the center of one of the transfer window's longest-running sagas after he failed to return for preseason training with the club and indicated a desire to leave, reported.

Having been signed for a world-record fee of €222 million (£200m/$263m) two years ago, the Selecao star has helped the club to domestic glory but limited European success.

Suitors including former side Barcelona, along with La Liga heavyweight Real Madrid and Serie A champion Juventus, have looked to prize Neymar away from the French capital, but have found themselves stumbling over a hefty asking price as PSG looks to recoup its costs.

The Parisian outfit has also rebuffed any prospective cash-plus-players deal, refusing to swap Neymar for a financial sum along with opposition players.

Now however, with the European transfer deadline looming and the prospect of an expensive player refusing to take to the field for the first half of the season, sporting director Leonardo Arajuo and coach Thomas Tuchel are expected to hold sit-down talks with the player over his future.

PSG is receptive to the idea of loaning the 27-year-old out with a subsequent obligation to buy, which would carry a price tag roughly in the region of €220 million (£201m/$244m) to €250 million (£228m/$277m).

Barca is widely considered to be the frontrunner to capture Neymar if he does depart Parc des Princes, with Ernesto Valverde's side keen to bring its former player back to Camp Nou for a reunion with Lionel Messi.

However, Madrid's pursuit suggests that Los Blancos see the forward as key to dethroning its rival’s stranglehold on the Liga title, while Juventus would be keen to pair him up with Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin.
