Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly considering using former Real Madrid midfielder Angel di Maria as a makeweight in their bid to sign Barcelona winger Neymar.
The Ligue 1 runners-up have been heavily linked with a world-record bid for the Brazil international which would set them back almost £200m if they meet his release clause.
The figure reportedly must be paid in full and up front if the clause is to be triggered, but AS reports that PSG are looking for alternative ways to avoid such a huge outlay.
In addition to the transfer fee, PSG may have to pay up to £62.6m in service taxes, which would take the deal well beyond their financial means.
However, Barcelona remain unwilling to sell Neymar and have told PSG that it will take the full buyout clause for them to prise the winger away from Camp Nou.
