The Guardian have reported the French Champions are preparing to hold talks and are confident of securing the move. Neymar has also spoken with fellow countrymen Dani Alves, Lucas Moura, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos and told them he will be joining them in Paris next season, according to GloboEsporte. With SkyBet odds of 4/7 to stay at Barcelona and 5/4 to join PSG next season it would seem there may be some truth to this story.

Pepe Reina

Linked Club: Manchester City

Manchester City have reportedly offered Napoli £2.5m to acquire the services of former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

Marco Verratti

Linked Club: Manchester United

Manchester United have reportedly now joined Barcelona in the battle for Italy International, Marco Verratti’s signature. Verratti has announced that he has parted ways with his representation and hired ‘super agent’ Mino Raiola. The player is thought to be keen on a move to Spain, however, Raiola has already orchestrated big money moves for the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford recently. Barcelona remains the most likely destination for Verratti but a move to Manchester is still on the cards.

Sergio Aguero

Linked Club: Chelsea

After being beaten to sign Romelu Lukaku by Manchester United, Antonio Conte and Chelsea became linked with a number of top strikers including Sergio Aguero. A rumoured a £60m bid by the Blues looks unlikely following the signing of Alvaro Morata. The signing of Morata coupled with Guardiola’s insistence the player is going nowhere makes this move incredibly doubtful.
