Will Neymar make it through the winter? – Sport.fr
Paris Saint-Germain would still like to get rid of Neymar in order to bet only on a duo composed of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.
Pushed out last summer following the conditions imposed by Kylian Mbappé during his contract extension, Neymar Jr could well experience a similar episode during the next summer period. According to information disclosed by Sport in Spain, the 30-year-old Brazilian would still be on the start. Paris Saint-Germain would no longer wish to build around him and would now hope to get rid of him, definitively. Paris Saint-Germain’s project would be to build exclusively around a star duo of Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi. A major challenge as Neymar is linked until June 2027 with the Parisian team.
A major upheaval next summer… or even sooner!
What if Neymar left PSG this winter? This is the other, more radical option. An option that the Parisian leaders do not rule out. In the event of a good offer before the January market closes, the Brazilian could jump ship. Paris, who are set to sign an additional striker on the right flank, would have enough attacking squad to finish the season without Neymar, before signing a big centre-forward next summer.
There remains another unknown in this file: the position of Lionel Messi. The Argentinian refuses for the moment to commit to a new lease with PSG. Building around Mbappé remains the priority, but losing Neymar and Messi simultaneously could be a problem. The key is in the secret recruitment plans of Luis Campos and Christophe Galtier. Who are the attackers targeted for this winter, but even more so for next summer? And at what cost?…
