According to ESPN, during a meeting between the two sides on Tuesday, they have set the price of €170million for the player.
In fact, it was reported that the Spanish champions have also offered Ousmane Dembele as a makeweight in the deal.
Barcelona have offered Dembele due to financial issues. Indeed, the club have spent much during this summer transfer window.
The total spent to bring Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie De Jong, Neto and Junior Firpo to the Nou Camp this summer is €239million.
Barcelona’s determination to sign the 27-year old is not only due to the close relationship between him and the players at Camp Nou, including Messi, but also, to strengthen the club’s chances at lifting the Champions League trophy this year.
Moreover, some reports in Spain have revealed that Real Madrid are closely monitoring the deal between PSG and Barca, but avoid to get involved in any transfer competition with Barcelona.
