Cape Town - Barcelona have reportedly submitted a bid of £90 million plus the offer of six players for Paris Saint-Germain to choose two from for the transfer of Brazilian attacker Neymar.

The six players believed to have been made available are Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Malcom and Nelson Semedo with the identity of the sixth player unknown, according to SkySports.

After the £108 million signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, Barcelona see a cash-plus-player deal as the most viable option to comply with FIFA Fair Play regulations.

The Ligue 1 outfit seems to have accepted the player's wish to return to Spain with head coach Thomas Tichel admitting that he was aware of the player's wish before the Copa America tournament.

Listed players' transfer value:

Malcom - £41 million (2018/2019)

Philippe Coutinho - £145 million (2017/2018)

Ousmane Dembele - £125 million (2017/2018)

Nelson Semedo - £35 million (2017/2018)

Ivan Rakitic - £18 million (2014/2015)
