Transfer news UPDATES: Paulo Dybala talks, Barcelona want David Alaba

Car boot sale

Barcelona clearly don’t the funds to sign Neymar and the transfer is developing into a ‘car boot sale’ says Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Catalan side are reported to have offered several player-plus-cash deals with Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti all involved.

"It feels like we're having a car boot sale at the Nou Camp," Solhekol told The Transfer Show. "I'm not sure PSG are going to be too impressed with this after paying Barcelona £200m in cash for Neymar back in 2017.

"And now it seems like Barcelona simply don't have the cash up front, which is why they are coming up with this very creative offer.”

Wilfried Zaha decision

Arsenal chiefs have taken a step-back in their pursuit of Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha’s brother publicly revealed the player’s desire to join the Emirates side, although an initial bid of £40million was hastily rejected by Eagles chairman Steve Parish.
