Barcelona could replace Neymar with PSG’s Julian Draxler

And it appears the Catalan side are planning to raid their European rivals by replacing him with the German playmaker.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


According to Bild, Draxler’s agent Roger Wittmann was pictured spotted at the airport in Barcelona.

It is unclear whether Wittmann was in Barcelona to hold talks over a potential move for Draxler but his future could now be called into question following Neymar’s arrival.

The 23-year-old only joined the French capital in January for £38million but produced a mixed-bag of performances as he ended the season with four goals.

Barca are desperate to sign Neymar’s replacement ahead of the new La Liga campaign.

Their No 1 target remains Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and the club are willing to part with a staggering £120m to land the Brazilian.

Philippe Coutinho missed Liverpool’s pre-season match fuelling speculation of a move to Barcelona

Coutinho fuelled further speculation that he was closing in on a move to Barcelona after missing Liverpool’s 3-1 pre-season win over Athletic Bilbao.

Reports in Spain say officials from the La Liga side have travelled to England three times to meet with Coutinho’s representatives.

And with Barca ready to spend their huge wad of cash, they could also conclude deals for Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele and Real Sociedad’s Inigo Martinez.
