According to radio station Montecarlo, the PSG management has informed Neymar that they no longer want the Brazilian striker to stay from the 2022-2023 season. This information was later confirmed by the El Pais newspaper according to a source close to Al-Khelaifi: “The PSG president wants to overhaul the squad and impose martial law, impose more discipline on the club from next season, with Mbappe at the top of the pyramid,” the source emphasized.
PSG’s Qatari owners are said to be unhappy with Neymar’s lack of discipline in training and post-match recovery. They see that the Brazilian striker has always been overweight in recent seasons.
Unstable performance after injury
Throughout the season, the Brazilian striker did not have much to contribute to the big team in Paris due to persistent injury treatment. He also returned unconvincingly and could not help PSG get to the final Champions League match as desired. After being knocked out of the round of 16 by Real Madrid, both Neymar and Messi have come under fire. Fans constantly booed and whistled when both had the ball.
The reason why Neymar demanded compensation from PSG
L’Equipe newspaper said that Kylian Mbappe asked the PSG owners to sell the No. 10 striker. Besides, the new sports director of the Prince’s Park team, Mr. Luis Campos also planned to Brazilian star is gone.
However, on July 1, L’Equipe reported that Neymar’s contract had been automatically extended until June 2027. Striker himself is said to be angry and feel “humiliated” by PSG’s assessment and hopes to be able to revive at another big club. The 30-year-old striker has revealed that his next goal is to win the Ballon d’Or, in response to the Paris team.
PSG wants to sell Neymar to recover capital
The Brazilian striker’s family calculates the amount of compensation of 210 million euros as appropriate. This move made PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi feel frustrated. He wants to sell Neymar this summer to recover capital.
The biggest barrier for Neymar to leave PSG is the striker’s current salary. According to the Spanish newspaper Sport, PSG invited Barca to buy Neymar for only $ 52 million, but the owner of the Camp Nou is having financial difficulties. Juventus also negotiated with PSG, but they announced that they could not meet Neymar’s current salary.
Confusion makes the Brazilian striker unable to leave PSG
On June 28, 2022, defender Thiago Silva publicly advised his juniors to come to Chelsea. “If this deal happens, that’s for the best.
Striker does not need to comment. So far, I don’t know anything, but hopefully, this deal can come true,” the 37-year-old midfielder told SportWitness while traveling in the city of Recife, Brazil.
However, it will not be easy for Chelsea to own Neymar because this player has a safer choice than continuing to stick with PSG. It should be known that Neymar is focusing on the World Cup 2022, which may be the last major tournament he dedicates to Brazil. At this sensitive stage, what he needs is stability, not an adventure.
At PSG, at least Neymar is still guaranteed a starting spot with Messi and Mbappe, while if he goes to the Premier League, it is unlikely that he will be able to keep up with the intensity of the matches in this fierce playground. If you look at the example of Messi, his teammate has completely reduced his scoring performance after moving from Barca to PSG, if the 30-year-old striker wants to change clubs, he should wait until the 2022 World Cup ends.
