"Although he doesn't agree with the value (of 8 million) the process has dragged on for more than three years and the intention is to end it and move on to this new phase for Neymar", said Marcos Neder, one of the player's lawyers.

Neymar's lawyer now says that they will not report Barcelona to Federation Internationale de Football Association and says that lines of communication are still open between the two sides.

Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho are their top targets but Di Maria looks like a back up option for the Borussia Dortmund man.

The S&P 500 fell 1 per cent, while the CBOE Volatility Index jumped 32 per cent to bring its three-day rise to 47 per cent. Silver added 0.4% to $17.15 US per ounce after hitting $17.24, its highest since June 14, in the previous session.

Barcelona are interested in Angel Di Maria (29).

Di Maria is widely regarded as one of the best attacking players in the world, having enjoyed a highly productive four-year spell with Real Madrid before establishing himself as a key figure for PSG, via a failed one-year spell at Manchester United. But, he could find himself going down the pecking order at Parc des Princes, with PSG signing Neymar while also eyeing a move for Kylian Mbappe.

And one of the biggest clubs in the world, Barcelona, are interested in signing him this summer. "This gives us the chance to sign new players that will keep us competitive".

The fire left only one of five giant turbines working to supply power to drainage pumps across the east bank. As a precautionary measure, all schools in Orleans Parish are closed Thursday and Friday.

Di Maria may also be willing to move to the Camp Nou to play alongside his global teammates Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano.

With Edinson Cavani and Neymar assured of starting up front, Di Maria will have to compete with Julian Draxler, Lucas Moura and Jese to take up the other wide forward role.

But will PSG sell? However it is now up to tax authorities to decide whether they accept the amount that Neymar's defense team has calculated that he owes.
