PSG’s sporting director Leonardo said that the Brazilian could still leave if the right offer came in, Barca’s director of institutional relations, Guillermo Amor, did not rule out a late twist in the proceedings.
PSG refused to lower their asking price and Barcelona’s offers of players as makeweights failed to appease the French side.
Neymar made a last-ditch play to force through the move, telling PSG he would pay £17.7million of his money to facilitate the switch.

But PSG would not budge on their demands and talks between them and Barcelona have now broken down.
Neymar has been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid for several months and is yet to play for PSG in the new season due to the relentless transfer speculation.
