The turmoil at French giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) continues unabated. Kylian Mbappe is at odds with the club over his refusal to sign a new contract, while Lee Kang-in’s new best friend, Neymar, 22, is rumored to be returning to his hometown team, Barcelona.
France’s L’Equipe reported on Aug. 8 that Neymar, who wants to return to Barcelona this summer, officially requested a transfer to PSG last weekend.
Spanish media outlets have also reported on the possibility of Neymar’s move to Barcelona, so it seems that it is not just a rumor.
The key to Neymar’s move to Barcelona is money. Barcelona’s financial woes have yet to be resolved, and it would be difficult for the club to pay for Neymar, who has three years left on his contract.
ESPN analyzed on the same day that Barcelona is also contemplating a deal for Neymar, but it is unlikely to be financially feasible.
The outlet also said that Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez’s priorities are a right fullback and an attacking midfielder, which makes a deal more likely to fail than succeed.
There does appear to be a way out if PSG are willing to allow Neymar to move on loan rather than outright. Neymar would fill the void left by Ousmane Dembele, who is leaving Barcelona for PSG.카지노
However, Neymar’s representatives have denied any rumors of a move to Barcelona. Neymar’s father, Neymar Senior, told PL Brasil that it was “fake news” and that “I can’t confirm news that hasn’t happened. Requipes are requipes,” he said in a statement.
