Paris Saint-Germain have made their demands clear to Barcelona over a move for Neymar after representatives from both clubs had a meeting in Paris today.

Director of football Eric Abidal and board member Javier Bordas flew to France on Tuesday morning to try and negotiate a deal.

And according to Mundo Deportivo's Marcal Lorente (see below), PSG said they want Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic plus cash for the Brazil international.

It's not yet known what the figure would be.

"In the meeting between Barca and PSG, it was said that Coutinho, Rakitic and money would be the request of the Parisian club to sell Neymar," Lorente tweeted.

Barcelona now know exactly what they must do to re-sign Neymar, who no longer has a future at PSG and is desperate to return.

Real Madrid are also interested in signing the 27-year-old, but it's understood that his preference is to rejoin Barca.

Barcelona fans are divided over whether they should bring Neymar back - one fan has posted an extensive Twitter thread explaining why they shouldn't - but there's no denying his quality.

An attacking quartet of Neymar, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann would terrify defences across Europe and give Barca a great chance of winning the Champions League.
