PSG considers negotiating Neymar in this transfer window and has decided to lower the asking price to release the Brazilian star. According to the Cosmo Deportivo newspaper, the French club is even willing to offer a “discount” on the value to free the forward.
The idea is for the French club to have only one big star in the next season, with Kylian Mbappé currently being the favorite of the board to stay. However, there is an agreement between Neymar and PSG that if the Frenchman leaves, the Brazilian will stay with the team.
However, Mbappé has not made a decision yet, and Neymar continues to work on his future, as he has offered himself to Barcelona and other European giants in recent days. It’s worth noting that Neymar reached the height of his career at Barça.
However, the Catalan club has ruled out the possibility, claiming that aside from being expensive, the Brazilian could bring problems to the dressing room. Nevertheless, even though Barcelona doesn’t want to welcome him back, Neymar is still a target for other European football powerhouses.
Premier League is a possible destination
As previously announced, Chelsea, Newcastle, and Manchester United discussed his signing a few months ago. These clubs are likely to make another attempt to sign the PSG forward. There is a possibility of the star landing in the MLS, but it is seen as less likely due to the league’s lower level of competitiveness.
Manchester United also has a great chance of making an official offer if it is accepted by Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad, who wants to buy the Red Devils. The English club already knows that Paris Saint-Germain has lowered its demand for Neymar’s economic rights.
Neymar is 31 years old and has a contract with PSG until 2027. According to Le Parisien, the player is valued by the French club at 60 million euros, approximately 124 million less than the purchase cost in 2017, which is considered a significant discount compared to the recently requested amount.
