AS WELL AScome Paris Saint Germain need to cut spending this summer and sell Neymar will significantly ease economic tensions at the club after Kylian Mbapperecent update.
However, the Brazilian’s high price tag and extortionate salaries make such a scenario nearly impossible.
According to the president of PSG Nasser Al-KhelaifiComment by MARCA, the club is looking for an identity change that Neymar no longer fits into.
“We need young, talented, driven players with a winning mentality, people who are ready to die for this badge,” Nasser Al-Khelaifi said in an exclusive interview with MARCA.
“We want to be stronger together, play as a team and have the club come first.”
It is clear that Neymar left the supposedly missing piece of the PSG puzzle even when he signed a contract with Barcelona to be a burden now.
Al-Khelaifi neither confirmed nor denied the possible departure of the former Barcelona player.
“We can’t talk about it in the media, someone will come, someone will leave, but these are private negotiations,” he said.
Getting rid of Neymar is not easy. Take it the other way around, really. The €222 million paid by PSG to Barcelona made the Brazilian the most expensive transfer in history. Clearly, a return on investment seems impossible. Not even half.
Another hurdle that makes selling Neymar nearly impossible is his high salary. former Barcelona The player was, until Mbappe’s renewal, the highest paid player at PSG and in Ligue 1: he earns €48.9m gross and has a contract until 2025.
