BARCELONA are considering part-exchanging Antoine Griezmann for Neymar, according to reports.
The Catalan giants are desperate to re-sign the Brazilian and are said to be willing to include the Frenchman in the deal.
Barca value Griezmann at £88million while Paris Saint-Germain want £135m for Neymar and the two could do a swap deal, according to Sky Sports News.
Given the expensive nature of modern transfers, the clubs are said to prefer swap deals amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Griezmann reportedly thinks he can stay at Barca and is taking part in the campaign to promote their kit for next season.
But it seems unlikely with a growing belief he just does not fit into Barca's system.
The Catalan giants look ready to cut their losses on the former Atletico Madrid man despite having shelled out £108m for him last summer.
Manchester United, and Inter Milan are two likely destinations if the Neymar deal does not come off.
However, Neymar is believed to be willing to accept his old salary of around £22million-a-year in Catalonia – a decrease on the £31.7million he pockets in Paris – to make the move happen.
And with two years left on his bumper PSG contract, now could be the time to move on.
He has performed well for the Ligue 1 champions when fit – scoring 69 goals and assisting a further 39 in 80 appearances for the club he controversially joined in 2017.
But injuries have blighted his stay at the Parc des Princes – and he has ultimately failed to deliver them the Champions League glory that their Qatari owners so crave.
