It has been more than a month now since the summer transfer window opened. The European giants are all working to secure their targets before the window closes. In the past few days, we have seen some of the biggest transfers of the season starting with Eden Hazard, Joao Felix, Matthijs de Ligt, Antoine Griezmann and a few more. Although there are a few names which can still change club before the end of the window. One such name is Neymar Jr.
Neymar has been in the news regarding a move from late last year. The player moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a record €222 million. However, it appears that things didn’t work out well for him in Paris. Two main reasons behind this have been the rise of Kylian Mbappe as a star and Neymar’s not so good relation with the president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Neymar is thus trying to secure a move out of PSG.
As per many Spanish reports, FC Barcelona is interested to bring back Neymar to the club. But there are some problems which are not hard to understand. First of all, PSG wants to get back at least the €222 million they invested in Neymar. On the other hand, Barcelona has already signed Antoine Griezmann and Frankie De Jong for €120 million and €75 million respectively. After spending more than €200 million already this summer, it is financially difficult for Barcelona to spend more than €200 million again on Neymar.
Thus they are trying to offer Ousmane Dembélé, Philippe Coutinho and €40m cash to PSG in exchange of Neymar. However, PSG president Al-Khelaifi doesn’t want to do business with Catalans mainly due to their past toxic relationship.
Recently, Neymar’s father went to meet with the directors of Juventus regarding a move to the Turin club. As per reports, Juventus can offer Paulo Dybala and another €80-90 million in order to secure a move for Neymar. Now it is only time that will tell if we see Neymar playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. What’s your thought on this whole Neymar transfer Saga? Let us know down in the comments.
