The cleaning up so hoped for by the supporters of Paris SG who demonstrated this week in front of the club’s headquarters is taking shape. We now know that Lionel Messi, whose contract in the capital ends next June, will not be retained. The Argentinian world champion would have a return to FC Barcelona as his priority. According to RMC Sport, the “Pulga” would be ready to make a big financial effort to find Catalonia: divide his salary by three!

Barcelona leaders are working to allow No. 10 to return, but the Catalan club’s finances will not allow leaders to splurge. “If he wants to come back, he will have to earn less than what he earns at PSG. Because at PSG, the results say that their payroll is 800 million. A club that earns 700 million or less has a total wage bill of 800 million. This is what he earns, in addition to what he earns from other sources or elsewhere“, warned Javier Tebas, president of the Spanish Football League this Friday.

Nothing is recorded, especially since the South American clan would have two other offers to continue his career: David Beckham’s Inter Miami but above all a huge offer from Saudi Arabia where Cristiano Ronaldo plays. Al Hilal had made an offer to bring in the Portuguese last winter. This had been postponed and CR7 had finally opted for the rival Al-Nassr.

A loan for Neymar in the Premier League?

Another star could be affected by the Paris transfer window: Neymar. The Brazilian is under contract with PSG until June 2027 but according to L’Equipe the player would no longer close the door as much as before to the idea of ​​​​a departure which could take the form of a loan, probably in the Premier League League. According to the daily, the striker was “shocked” by the presence of ten PSG supporters who came to demand his departure from his home on Wednesday evening.

But several elements would not play in favor of a transfer: his wife is pregnant and will return to France where she intends to take French lessons. Finally, Neymar will not return to competition until next July after having surgery on his right ankle last March.
