The team and discontented supporters have finally pressured Neymar to quit Paris Saint-Germain, and he has indicated that he is prepared to do so.
PSG signed the Brazilian for a world-record fee, but injuries and a poor record in Europe have plagued his time at the club, despite the presence of teammates like Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
In any of his six seasons in France, Neymar has only made 22 league games for PSG. PSG tried to trade him last summer, but the 31-year-old chose to exercise the option to extend his contract until 2027.
As a result of the pricey attempt to put together a team of elite stars failing to live up to expectations, PSG is trying to make a fresh start and focus on young, French players.
Although Chelsea, Juventus, and Barcelona showed some interest in Neymar last summer, the forward’s €40 million salary has proven to be a roadblock because he has previously been unwilling to go.
However, in light of recent events, PSG supporters have turned their wrath toward Neymar. They have gathered outside of his home and have been yelling for him to go, and according to reports in France, the pressure may have reached a breaking point.
‘The only market’ for Neymar is the Premier League
FootMercato, a French publication, reports that the event outside Neymar’s house has “affected” him and he has decided not to stay, but he will only leave if it is the appropriate thing to do.
However, the star has no interest in moving to Saudi Arabia, which is the only country that has shown early interest in Neymar. PSG is reportedly willing to “make concessions” to sell Neymar.
FootMercato specifically highlights Manchester United and Chelsea as the teams in the Premier League where Neymar can play.
When his contract expires this summer, Messi is also planning to depart, while Mbappe is in the final year of his contract. PSG may make wholesale changes to their core in the upcoming season, as they seek to move on from their prized talents.
