Paris Saint-Germain’s reported interest in Ousmane Dembele might help Barcelona’s quote to re-sign Neymar, confesses Rivaldo, however it is not likely that the Liga giants might land the Brazilian forward and Lautaro Martinez.
The sights of those at Camp Nou are thought to be locked on South American skill heading towards the next transfer window.
Efforts have actually been made to take Neymar back to Catalunya regularly because he finished a record-breaking relocation to France in 2017, with that scenario continuing to be examined.
Big- cash offers are, nevertheless, anticipated to be in brief supply for the instant future, with the coronavirus pandemic striking even the wealthiest of clubs hard.
Dembele might show to be a trump card for Barca, however, with it possible that they might look to consist of the World Cup- winning winger in an offer which permits Neymar to backtrack his actions.
Rivaldo informed Betfair of that proposition: “There are rumours recommending that PSG may be thinking about Ousmane Dembele and, although I believe Dembele is a fantastic gamer, I think this might be a great chance for Barcelona to lastly bring Neymar back.
“Of course, Barca will require to pay some extra cash to manage the offer, however I believe this might be an equally helpful piece of organisation for both clubs.
“Dembele could see it as a good move, as he will have the chance to rediscover his best form and become one of PSG’s star players. He would be back in his native country and could produce solid performances, so I think this move would be interesting for him. But first we must wait to see if the clubs will reach an agreement.”
While Neymar might return onto Barca’s radar at some phase, it might be that enduring interest in a familiar face has to be shelved considered that Inter star Lautaro has actually emerged as an alternative leading target.

“The arrival of the appealing Argentinian forward for around EUR100 m would recommend that he is coming to be a starter, however regrettably for him Suarez is still very first option in advance which may be an issue for Lautaro.
“If Barcelona are thinking of the Suarez succession beforehand then Martinez would be an outstanding finalizing. Inter are requesting a huge charge and, with the coronavirus crisis triggering clubs monetary damage, Barcelona requirement to examine the scenario and choose if they have sufficient cash to total the transfer.
“Barca’s interest in Lautaro might suggest that the club have to quit on Neymar’s finalizing, as I believe it is practically difficult to indication both gamers at the exact same time.
“Barcelona need to focus on landing just one of them and seal the deal. Either of them would be a good signing, but the club needs to think about the amounts involved and also about their manager’s wishes. What is the position that Quique Setien wants to reinforce now? Which player would be better suited to his plans? Only Setien knows.”
