The club’s director for football, retired French international Eric
Abidal, and two other top club officials flew to Paris to meet with
their Paris Saint-Germain counterparts, Catalan radio Rac1 and Catalan
television TV3 reported.

“The breakthrough is significant as PSG had up until now refused to
meet with Barcelona emissaries but it does not mean that the deal is
closed,”
Rac1 wrote on its website.

The deal which the Barcelona officials will propose could include other
players such as Philippe Coutinho or Ivan Rakitic, it added.
 
Paris Saint-Germain revealed on Saturday that Neymar transfer talks
are “more advanced than before” after the Brazilian was dropped for the
French champions’ opening Ligue 1 match.

Sporting director Leonardo confirmed to reporters that the Brazilian was
near the exit door but that PSG were “not yet ready to give their
approval” for the transfer.

Real Madrid or a return to Barcelona are the most likely destinations
for the world’s most expensive footballer, won two La Liga titles and
the 2015 Champions League in four years with the Catalan side.

Sports newspaper AS has reported that Neymar has been offered to Madrid
by PSG, who are open to selling if they can either recoup the 222
million euros ($249 million) they spent on him in 2017 or receive half
that amount with players included in the deal.

But Barcelona-based Mundo Deportivo says that he would prefer a move
back to Catalonia to play alongside former teammates Lionel Messi and
Luis Suarez.
