The Neymar negotiations : What takes so long?

The Neymar negotiations

People want to know why the Neymar negotiations is taking so much time. Therefore, Hagrid is here with a few points which could solve your question.

The deal is very complicated as it is. The relationship between PSG and Barcelona is not that great, which is why Leonardo preferred to sell Neymar to Madrid instead of Barça. The President of PSG (Al Khelaifi) maintains a good relationship with Real Madrid, and it’s president Florentino Perez. He’s also one of the people who would not hesitate to give away the Brazilian to Real Madrid.

Why is the deal taking so much time? Demands which Leonardo has set for the Brazilian are pretty difficult for the teams to match. Preferred deal:

  1. Loan with Mandatory Option to Buy.
  2. Someone pays around 200M-220M to PSG for Neymar, as a permanent transfer.

Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are lined up to get Neymar. However, Juventus haven’t made any bids for him yet, but the Spanish clubs have.

Barcelona’s Bid:

  • Coutinho + Rakitic + $$$
  • Loan with an obligation to buy

Both were rejected, because Leonardo didn’t like it. Therefore, this is what Leonardo would want from respective clubs:

  • Real Madrid: Varane + Vinicius + 150M.
  • Barcelona: Dembele + 180M.

Neither of the clubs have been able to meet the demands of Leonardo which makes things difficult. Neymar on the other hand remaining silent through the negotiations as expected. If he speaks up regarding his future publicly, then negotiations will be much faster!

Let’s see what happens over the coming days. Both, Barcelona and Madrid are preparing new offers to acquire the services of Neymar.
