Paris Saint-Germain are ready to renew their efforts to sign Barcelona star Neymar, and are planning a bumper package worth up to €222 million in order to land their man.
After a long, fruitless quest to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Paris, leaders of the French club turned their eyes on Neymar last summer. Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Olivier Letang rolled out the red carpet to try to sign the Brazilian this season, offering an astronomical salary (matching Messi's Barcelona deal) as well as several hefty financial clauses to entice the striker.
