BARCELONA could agree a blockbuster deal for Neymar within 48 hours as they will meet PSG chiefs in Liverpool this week.
That’s according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, with Barca ready to improve their initial bid of £74million plus Philippe Coutinho as Real Madrid also want Neymar.
Barca president Josep Bartomeu is ready to negotiate with his PSG counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaifi before a European Club association meeting in England.
PSG reportedly want more players AND extra cash for Brazil striker Neymar, two years after paying Barca £198m for him.
One proposal from Barcelona is thought to be a one-year loan deal ahead of a permanent £93m-plus-players move next summer.
Ivan Rakitic and Ousmane Dembele, as well as former Liverpool playmaker Coutinho, are the Nou Camp superstars in prime contention for any such part-exchange deal.
But PSG will drive a hard bargain for Neymar, 27, before the September 2 deadline.
The French champions know Real chief Zinedine Zidane is still interested in both Neymar and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
Such a costly double swoop seems unlikely, especially as Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has already moved to the Bernabeu this summer.

But Zidane is understood to be willing to throw in Isco, Raphael Varane and Marcelo if he could lure PSG into selling Neymar.
Barcelona remain in pole position, though.
And Neymar has hinted the Bernabeu is his preferred destination.
