Negotiations over a deal which will see Neymar end up at FC Barcelona is advancing fast. Barça have refused to go above their €100m spending limit and are looking to include one or two players going the other way.
Reports in France suggest that it'll be Coutinho and/or Rakitic who will bring the cash needed down. However, any deal is complicated by all the separate parts involved.
Possible presentation on Friday?
According to 'Paris United', negotiations are at an advanced stage and a deal could be made official within the next couple of days. If that happens, the Brazilian might be presented on Friday as a new Barça player.
���� Discussions toujours en cours avec notamment #Abidal et #Cury coté barcelonais qui tentent à tout prix de faire accepter à #Leo une somme n'excédant pas les 100M€+ un ou deux joueurs (Coutinho/Rakitic) 1/2— Paris United (@parisunited6) August 13, 2019

This would mean that Neymar passes his medical on the same day, Friday, and be presented as a new Barça player at the Camp Nou.
It's worth remembering that Barça begin their defence of LaLiga on Friday away at Athletic Club.
