The future of Neymar is now in the hands of Ousmane Dembelé and Emir of Qatar, Tamim ben Hamad Al Thani, los two men who can unlock his transfer to Barcelona or condemn him to live one more season in Paris Saint-Germain.22222324443 It publishes on Wednesday in its digital edition the newspaper "L'Équipe", The conversations between both clubs continue now in the distance, a day after the meeting in Paris in which each one fixed their positions and reached a ground of understanding. 444444

The player has been valued at about 170 million euros, a figure accepted by both, but now they have to agree on the form in which the pago is made. Therefore, when the two delegations separated after the meeting, each one held talks: the PSG sports director, Leonardo, directly with Doha, where the last word is Emir Al Thani.


The Catalan delegation, headed by the director General of the club, Oscar Grau, returned to Barcelona with the aim of convincing Dembelé to leave the club in the direction of the French capital. "L'Équipe" says that in the last hours Barcelona has proposed 130 million, to the Croatian Ivan Rakitic and the cession for a season of Dembelé. 222222

The world champion, who already played under the orders of Thomas Tuchel in Borussia Dortmund and that has a great complicity with Kylian Mbappé, appears as the only piece capable of convincing the French to reduce the financial amount of the operation.

At his 23 years, the French would have problems to play in a Barcelona with Leo Messi , Luis Suárez, Antoine Griezmann and Neymar, and in which young promises from the quarry appear like Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati.


With that argument they try to counter the statements of their representative, Moussa Sissoko, who a few days ago closed every door to an exit of the soccer player. 444444

"L'Équipe" assures that he is the technical secretary, also the French Éric Abidal, and l responsible for convincing him. 222222

The newspaper affirms that this exchange would have the approval of Tuchel, who does not want his offensive flank to be weakened with the departure of Neymar without some name of prestige coming to fill the gap.

The other key man of the operation. The sale of Neymar has a political variant and, therefore, it must have the approval of Doha.

A few days ago, the newspaper "Le Monde" assured that the Emir Al Thani was opposed to the departure of the Brazilian star, because it would mean a defeat and tarnish the image of the whole country, three years after the World Cup they organize and in which they reserve Neymar as an ambassador. 444444

Since then, things have moved. The player has expressed his willingness to return to Barcelona and has made it clear that he does not want to re-cover the shirt of the PSG, which was last visited more than 100 days ago.

In the past, Al Thani has already shown that he is capable to make decisions in the sports field without attending to the advice of their advisors.


The clearest was the signing of Thomas Tuchel for the bench instead of Unai Emery, although the sports management opted for other names.

La French press ensures that the future of Neymar will be decided today o tomorrow. PSG plays Friday in a league game in Metz, three days after the closing of the transfer market. 222222
