PSG want Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho in exchange for Neymar

Neymar will not take part in Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 meeting with Rennes on Sunday, but Thomas Tuchel still has hope of keeping the Brazil star at the club. Multiple high-profile personalities in Barcelona have expressed their desire for Neymar's return that's why the organization isn't giving up despite the chances of the trade happening is next to impossible. Five things to know...

The Brazilian has enjoyed a successful spell on the pitch for PSG, scoring 51 goals in 58 games.

"I asked [Neymar] how he was emotionally due to his situation and he said: 'I am calm, I know there is a way out and now I'm waiting for PSG to resolve the situation, '" Tite said at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro, after speaking with Neymar by phone.

But Stoichkov believes Barcelona are disrespecting their own players in doing so.

Valverde lamented the fact the transfer window does not close until 2 September and insisted he was "very happy with the squad".

Liverpool will not pocket any of the loan fee Bayern Munich will pay Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho.

Between satisfying PSG's needs, the player's needs and acquiring all of the baggage that comes along with a potential transfer, there's nothing straightforward about landing this big fish in the transfer market. The days I'm getting to know him, I know he's a good guy.

As well as chastising Barcelona for the nature of their bids for Neymar, Stoichkov went on to claim the Brazilian would be a "bomb" inside the Nou Camp locker room were he to sign.

"He's a very important player for us, he has been for my two years here", he added. Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez, and Lionel Messi are more than enough to ensure the team is a title contender. Where is he going to play? Over time, I have got to know him.

"It's false. He has not been removed from the group", he told RMC.

PSG, for all their riches and cultural cache in the lifestyle scene, strike most people as a soulless behemoth, guaranteed domestic success by virtue of their finances but unable to make the step and join Europe's old money.
