Barcelona is prepared to use Antoine Griezmann in a deal to land Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar, 28, has constantly been linked with a return to Camp Nou, but ended up staying at PSG during the last close season. It seems Barcelona will pursue the Brazil international again and it may be prepared to offer Griezmann in a deal.

TOP STORY – BARCELONA TO OFFER GRIEZMANN TO PSG IN NEYMAR DEAL

Despite it proving such an ordeal to sign Griezmann in the first place, Barca will try to use him as a makeweight in a deal to land Neymar, according to Sky Sports. The report says the Spanish giant is prepared to let Griezmann go just one season after signing him from Atletico Madrid, as it reportedly also targets Inter forward Lautaro Martinez.

Barca will try to sell the forward elsewhere if PSG is not interested, the story claims, with the Frenchman underwhelming since his switch to Camp Nou.
