Neymar is no longer unsaleable at Paris SG, but we still have to manage to find him a base. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is studying the solutions.
The revolution at PSG can go through the departure of a star who has not met expectations. Kylian Mbappé does not fall into this category and Lionel Messi will have his chance for a second season at Paris Saint-Germain, after a first exercise actually missed. But all eyes are on Neymar, who is no longer untouchable despite his recent extension. Sky Sports claim that Nasser Al-Khelaïfi will now listen to offers for his Brazilian playmaker, and that even a transfer for less than 100 million euros is possible. This is to say if Neymar has annoyed the Emir of Qatar with his attitude and his performance in recent seasons, where he clearly did not bring as much as hoped for by PSG at the time of his arrival for 222 ME from the FC Barcelona.
PSG considering 8 clubs for Neymar
But how does QSI intend to sell the one who is simply his best paid player in the squad, and who has no intention of leaving, unlike 2019 for example when he tried to exfiltrate to return to Barca? PSG has no choice, it must find out about the clubs capable of affording the services of Neymar, and of course, there are not that many. According to Don Balon, the Parisian leaders have toured the football planet, considering all the possibilities to refourguer the former prodigy of Santos.
Very difficult to negotiate with Real Madrid for example, given that PSG are doing everything to prevent another of their players, Kylian Mbappé, from signing with the Spanish giant. For a different reason, Barca are to be forgotten. The Catalan club may deliver an ambitious message for the summer transfer window, dropping a large sum and a huge salary is no longer on the agenda, especially since, unlike 2019, Neymar no longer makes socios dream. PSG have even considered turning to Bayern Munich, hoping that the discipline of the German club, which has already managed to revive a few players in difficulty in the past, can have its effect. But the Bavarian formation did not follow up.
Newcastle or Chelsea, the best chances?
Vi a final do bbb hoje de manhã e confesso que quando o Tadeu fez o discurso e falou “é impossível não reconhecer o sacrifício que você fez, para um atleta de ponta ficar afastado…” eu fui aos prantos junto com o PA ❤️

The last solution is therefore in the Premier League, where five clubs can be considered capable of signing Neymar. First of all, there is Newcastle and its colossal means despite results not yet adequate so soon after the takeover of the club by Saudi Arabia. But it remains a credible financial option. Same thing for Chelsea, who will change ownership and dream of a prestigious gondola head. Finally, Liverpool and Manchester City certainly have the means, but they have other projects than Neymar for recruitment. And finally, the track leading to Manchester United has been studied. Disgusted by this season, Cristiano Ronaldo could indeed slam the door, and PSG is ready if ever the Red Devils of future coach Eric Ten Hag, were to seek a star. But Neymar’s ability to adapt to the Premier League is inevitably called into question, and could well cool PSG’s ambition to part with its Brazilian number 10.
