The pre-season tournament will be Napoli's first trip to the US in more than 30 years. Explaining the decision, Aurelio De Laurentiis, Napoli chairman, said: "To have the opportunity to reintroduce SSC Napoli to the American market in this historic matchup against a world class club is huge for us."

Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barcelona president, added: "Visiting the United States and being able to get closer to our fans is always a great thing for Barca.

"On top of that, we will also have the chance to play at two iconic stadiums: at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, where in 2017 we played the La Liga Clsico, and at Michigan Stadium, the largest in the United States."

Griezmann is eager to move Barcelona after declaring he wishes to leave Atletico this summer.

However, it's been suggested Barca would sign Griezmann and then immediately send him to PSG as part of a swap for Neymar.

But for his part, Griezmann has no interest in such a proposal, with a family source declaring the idea "delusional".

Barca would have to meet the 120m buyout clause in Griezmann's deal to sign the World Cup winner.

Sport has been quoting a family source about Neymar's situation at PSG amid talk of Barcelona seeking to re-sign him this summer.

"He was never happy in Paris," stated the insider, while it was also revealed Neymar constantly describes PSG as "a small club" when compared with Barca.

The relative also stressed tension between the player and PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Indeed, it's suggested Al-Khelaifi's weekend outburst against the star culture inside the club was the result of the break down of the relationship between the pair.

<![CDATA[PSG prepared to sell Neymar - and set their price]]> <p>PSG are prepared to sell Neymar this summer as Barcelona and Real Madrid circle.</p><p>Le Parisien says PSG won't accept anything less than 300m due to the fact Neymar has three years left on his contract.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/psg-prepared-to-sell-neymar-and-set-their-price-4285666?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BBarcelona'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> PSG are prepared to sell Neymar this summer as Barcelona and Real Madrid circle.

Le Parisien says PSG won't accept anything less than 300m due to the fact Neymar has three years left on his contract.

If PSG manage to get what they are asking for, it would make Neymar the most expensive transfer in the history of football - for the second time.

When he joined the French giants in 2017 he cost a staggering 222m.

It's suggested the 300m asking price is a deliberate act by PSG in order to force Neymar to stay. They mention the fact Real Madrid have already spent over 300m this window and Bara are expected to confirm the signing of Antoine Griezmann for 120m on the 1st July.
