Barcelona make Coutinho promise to Neymar

Barcelona have promised Neymar the signings of Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho as they attempt to keep him at the club, according to reports.

The Brazilian forward has been strongly linked with a summer exit from Camp Nou as Lique 1 side Paris Saint Germain are willing to pay his release clause.

Talk of a reported move to PSG has gained rapid pace in recent weeks, despite Barca’s denial of any such reports.

Catalan daily Sport claimed last week that the Brazil international would not be returning to the Catalan capital and instead – jet to France to finalise a deal with the Parisien club once the US tour had finished.

However, that was deemed seemingly false after Barca defender Gerard Pique posted a picture with Neymar, saying ‘he stays.’

And, following the post – reports have now surfaced that the Catalan club have convinced him to stay by promising him the signings of Coutinho and Paulinho.

Barca’s interest in Coutinho has been rife since the summer began with Neymar himself calling for the Brazil international to leave Liverpool and move to Camp Nou.

Whilst, interest in former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho has gathered pace in recent weeks with a bid made to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.
