Barcelona Sporting director holding firm
Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are no nearer to finding an agreement for the transfer of Neymar, with Leonardo, the sporting director at PSG, confirming that their requests have yet to be met.
There is still time for a deal to be closed before the window shuts on Monday, yet it appears as though this game of brinksmanship will go right down to the wire as PSG look to get the best possible deal.
“The negotiations aren’t dead but there is no agreement because our requests haven’t been accepted,” Leonardo explained in the aftermath of PSG‘s victory over Metz on Friday.
“We are open to talk about players, but there is no agreement.
“The position of PSG and Neymar has always been clear, if a satisfactory offer arrived then he could leave, but that is not the case.”
When pressed on the likelihood of a deal coming before the deadline, the former AC Milan coach was non-committal.
“The deadline is Monday at midnight, we haven’t set any time limit other than the natural one.”
