Rumour Has It: PSG demand Vinicius from Madrid in Neymar deal

By Sports Desk August 27, 2019

All eyes remain on Neymar as Barcelona and Real Madrid continue trying to work out a deal with Paris Saint-Germain for the superstar forward.

Neymar, 27, is heavily linked with a return to LaLiga before the transfer window closes on September 2, but there has seemingly been limited progress.

The slow developments continue as numerous Barcelona players are either being asked for or offered to PSG, who know what they want from Madrid.

 

TOP STORY – PSG DEMAND VINICIUS FROM MADRID IN NEYMAR DEAL

PSG have told Real Madrid they will only negotiate for Neymar if Vinicius Junior is part of a deal, according to AS.

The LaLiga giants have already rejected a proposal involving Vinicius three times, the report says.

Barcelona are expected to be in Paris on Tuesday, according to Le Parisien, who report PSG have revealed what they want for Neymar.

According to the report, PSG want €100million plus Nelson Semedo and Ousmane Dembele.

Barcelona are willing to offer a maximum of €170m for Neymar if it can be paid over two years, according to Sport.

ROUND-UP

- Manchester United and Inter have spoken again and the Serie A giants are optimistic they will reach an agreement for Alexis Sanchez, according to Sky Sport. The difficulty in negotiations continues to be around the attacker's salary.

- Just what Christian Eriksen's future holds remains unclear. Tottenham have offered the midfielder a new contract but his representatives are unwilling to talk, according to the Mirror. Eriksen wants a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona, who are yet to make a bid for the Denmark international, the report says.

- Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move away from Arsenal, but it seems the playmaker could stay at Emirates Stadium. Turkish Football claims Ozil will not leave Arsenal during this transfer window.

- Fred's time at Manchester United could be over. Fiorentina have offered €20m (£18.2m) for the Brazil midfielder, according to La Nazione. Meanwhile, The Times report Fred is expected to stay after holding talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Staying at Old Trafford, Nemanja Matic wants talks with Solskjaer after losing his first-team place, according to the Mirror.

- Merih Demiral's stay at Juventus may be brief. AC Milan and Juve are set to meet again regarding the defender, with the Rossoneri prepared to offer €35m for the Turkey international, who joined the Serie A champions for €18m last month. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, that would mean Daniele Rugani would stay in Turin and Roma would again turn their attentions to Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren.

- After scoring his first Chelsea goals, Tammy Abraham is set to earn a new deal. The Telegraph reports the Premier League giants are ready to offer the striker a deal that would more than double his £50,000-per-week wages.

  • Vieira no clearer on Cyprien dismissal Vieira no clearer on Cyprien dismissal

    Nice coach Patrick Vieira said he did not understand the referee's decision to send off Wylan Cyprien in their 4-1 defeat to leader's Paris Saint-Germain.  

    PSG moved five points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with the win in the Riviera, but a controversial second yellow card shown to Cyprien for dissent turned the momentum of the game.

    Kylian Mbappe was then introduced for the final seven minutes on his return from a hamstring injury, as he scored and assisted to secure the points for PSG.

    Vieira said he had spoken to the officials after the game but was no clearer on Cyprien's dismissal off, the first of two red cards in three minutes.

    "The second yellow for Cyprien? I still do not understand the explanations of the referee," he told reporters.

    "Wylan did not insult or disrespect the referee. I find it very severe and unfair.

    "It is a half gesture of mood as one sees in all matches. The red for (Christophe) Herelle I can understand a little more.

    "We came up against a team that was much better than ours, but that does not detract from the talent there is in our team."

    Nice remain in mid-table and six points off second-place Nantes.

  • Tuchel to learn lessons as PSG seal victory late on in Nice Tuchel to learn lessons as PSG seal victory late on in Nice

    PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel will ensure lessons are learned from their second-half performance after a 4-1 win over Nice on Friday.

    Angel Di Maria gave Les Parisiens a two-goal lead on the south coast of France, but Nice mounted a second-half comeback when Ignatius Ganago pulled a goal back.

    The home team was reduced to nine men with two red cards in three minutes before Kylian Mbappe's introduction helped seal the win as he came on to score and assist late on.

    Tuchel said after the game that his team lacked precision and determination in the second half but was happy to come back from the international break with three points.

    "At the beginning of the second period we forgot to close out the match," he told reporters.

    "Nice played with another system, took more risks and we made easy mistake just before the (Ganago's) goal. Then after the two red's the match was decided.

    "It may be a good lesson for us, as we also lost control against Galatasaray after our goal.

    "At the start of a six game, intense series of games it's always good to start with a win and we had a very good first half."

    Nice had started the second half brightly but a second yellow card to Wylan Cyprien shown for dissent turned the momentum back in PSG's favour at the Allianz Riviera.

    "I received a charge that was not whistled and in frustration, I asked the referee with a slight gesture if there was no fault," Cyprien said.

    "He shows me a second yellow card explaining that my gesture is too vehement, even though I told him I didn't disrespect or insult him.

    "His decision had a major impact and I'm not sure if we would have equalised but he could have been more thoughtful. I think it's severe."
