In the midst of Kylian Mbappé’s soap opera, PSG could also face the possible departure of Neymar. The Brazilian, who returned to training on July 10, was open to leaving at the beginning of the summer. However, possibly due to the arrival of Luis Enrique, he changed his mind and its continuity in the French capital is no longer ruled out on the banks of the Seine River.
Meanwhile, Chelsea, which has had an infinite financial arsenal since the arrival of Todd Boehly, remains attentive to the situation of the PSG star. According to the information from Le Parisien, the English team will send an offer to the Parisians as long as they are sure that Neymar decides to leave Paris, something that is not confirmed right now and that still has to be discussed with his new coach. Luis Enrique.
The Asturian, during his presentation last week in Poissy, acknowledged that “he had not spoken to any player on the squad” when asked about the future of the former Barcelona player, with whom he met in Barcelona and won a historic treble. According to Le Parisien, the leaders of PSG have not yet made a decision regarding Ney’s future, despite the fact that in May they leaked to the press that they were even considering a loan without a purchase option to get rid of his salary.
This, of 26 million euros net per season, is a problem for a club that is increasingly exposed by the new Financial Fair Play regulations. In February, Neymar suffered an ankle injury that forced him to undergo surgery to fully recover from some discomfort that had been dragging on since the World Cup in Qatar. Although he returned to training with PSG on Monday, the reality is that his return to the pitch, at least to be at the highest level, is not scheduled until the beginning of Septembera chimera for a team, PSG, which demands results immediately and does not wait for anyone.
Luis Campos, sports adviser for the French team, does welcome Neymar’s departure. Last year, just when his arrival in the French capital became official, as a result of his closeness to the Mbappés, Qatar entrusted him with the mission of selling Neymar. The player, reluctant to leave, something that is now not entirely clear, automatically renewed until 2027, showing that he was not contemplating leaving. After the agglomeration of ultras in the vicinity of his house, last May, the ’10 ′ of PSG really probed to leave Paris. Chelsea, which will only sign him as a transfer and does not contemplate any transfer, is still attentive to a transfer that could be around 70 million euros, its current market value.
