Juventus enter race with Barcelona and Real Madrid for Neymar transfer

Juventus are reported to have joined the race to sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid not doing enough to entice the Parisian to sell the Brazilian this transfer window.
PSG’s high asking price for the forward, around €222m, has made talks staggeringly difficult for the suitors. Various player-plus-cash deals have also been proposed, but no positive progress has been made.
With neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona close to bringing the forward back to Spain, many sources claim that Juventus have made a late attempt to sign him. Paulo Dybala will move to the French capital as part of the deal, according to reports.
PSG would like to replace Neymar with Dybala and would be interested in arranging a separated transfer deal with Juventus for the midfielder. However, Juventus have communicated their interest for the Brazilian, and reports claim an offer of around €100m Dybala was presented to PSG.
To fund the deal, Juventus want to sell Blaise Matuidi, Mario Mandzukic, and Daniele Rugani, which will raise close to the required €100m. Gonzalo Higuain could be on his way out of Allianz Stadium if they need more cash for the deal.
A source claimed that Madrid have not been fully involved in the transfer deal because of Leonardo’s expectations are excessively high. Also, right now, Barcelona are out of the race for the Brazilian.
Madrid are reported to have sought a swap deal for Neymar and PSG mentioned getting either Raphael Varane, Vinicius Junior or Thibaut Courtois but with Real declining to release any of them, Keylor Navas became an alternative.
Since the Costa Rican goalkeeper has the least value in the deal, Real would need to offer more cash, but their reluctance to so seems to have paved the way for a potential deal with Juventus.
