Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly rejected a bid from Barcelona to sign Neymar on a season-long loan.
According to French football expert Julian Laurens, the Catalan giants tabled an offer worth €150million [£136m] over the next year.
With just under two weeks remaining for the European transfer window to close, Barcelona are keen to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou.
Speaking on ESPN FC, Laurens explained that PSG expected Barca to make a loan bid, and refused the proposal because they still don’t have any interest in facilitating a loan deal.
“For PSG, the offer has come from Barcelona as we reported yesterday, it is what PSG expected and what we all expected,” he said.
“It’s a loan deal - a paying loan, of around €40million [£36m] with an obligation to buy next summer for €150m [£136m].
“In total, it’s €190m [£173m] with the loan and then that permanent deal next summer.
“As we were told yesterday, PSG right now are not interested in any sort of loan - whatever the structure.
“They basically told Barca to go and work that one again.”
