Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to send Angel Di Maria to Barcelona, as well as £195million (€220m), in order to close their record-breaking deal for Neymar.
Diario AS reported on Friday, that the former Manchester United player could be used as part of the deal.
PSG see it as a way of avoiding paying Neymar’s transfer buy-out clause to the Spanish league and incurring a tax bill of over £62m.
Paying the buyout clause means PSG pay Neymar £195m and he then deposits the sum with the league to free him from his Barca contract.
This method of payment could drag them into a dispute with the French taxman, who will see passing of the money to Neymar as taxable income. The Brazil international could howver count the money as a gain in assets, that he could subsequently offset as a loss when he then pays it to the league.
This is reportedly why PSG are keen to persuade Barcelona, to treat the deal as a normal transfer and will offer Di Maria as a deal sweetener.
