Barcelona have identified three priorities heading into the summer transfer window. According to reports from Spanish football expert Guillem Balague. Barca want Neymar to return to the Camp Nou. The club will do all they can to sign the Paris Saint-Germain attacker who left three years ago in a world record transfer fee of around £200million. But first the La Liga giants will have to raise funds to facilitate a deal for Neymar. The club has identified Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho as the candidates to depart Barca in order to raise money for Neymar.
Ousmane Dembele was the first player to arrive as a possible replacement for Neymar. He was signed in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund. The youngster has failed to live up to expectations as injuries, poor form and off field antics have held him towards reaching his peak form for the Catalan giant. Dembele is currently injured. He will be out for the rest of the season.
Philippe Coutinho arrived at Camp Nou in January 2018 from. Liverpool. The Brazilian was brought in to act as supporting cast for Lionel Messi and Luiz Suarez. He did make a good impression when he joined the club. But he has failed to produce consistently for the club. He has been sent on loan to Bayern Munich and the German club will not sign the player on a permanent deal at the end of his loan deal.
Griezmann Joined from Atletico Madrid last summer. The French man has scored 14 goals in all competitions. But he has failed to impress, and the club has decided to cut their losses and they are ready to listen to offers for the player.
Griezmann, Coutinho and Dembele all cost Barca fees worth of £100m and have been linked with moves away from the club.
Michael Laudrup has enjoined the club to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou. The former Barca player stated that the work is getting too much for Messi upfront and Neymar as he has proven before, has a good understanding with the diminutive Argentine.
