According to ESPN, Paris Saint-Germain and La Liga champion, Barcelona have agreed to a deal for Neymar at €170million.
A further report revealed that details about payments are holding up the deal.
PSG want the entire amount to be paid upfront, but Barca is exploring different ways to cover the fee, following a busy summer in which they brought in Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie De Jong, Neto and Junior Firpo for a combined €239million.
During the meeting between the two clubs, La Liga champions offered to pay €40million in 2019, with additional payments of €65million to be made in 2020 and 2021.
The Ligue 1 champions rejected the deal placed forward by Barcelona and insisted that they want the entire fee paid upfront.
The Spanish champions are now looking to include Ousmane Dembele as a makeweight in the deal.
A source close to negotiations claimed that the next 48 hours will be decisive for the negotiations.
Barcelona technical secretary, Javier Bordas, said after the meetings that the club “felt closer to a deal than in days past.”
