- Neymar has expressed his desire to leave PSG this summer, with a potential return to Barcelona on the horizon.
- Barcelona’s financial difficulties may impede Neymar’s transfer.
- Neymar, under contract until 2025, has not formally communicated his intention to leave to the club’s executives.
- The departure of Lionel Messi and the ongoing standoff with Kylian Mbappe has marked a period of uncertainty for PSG.
In a turn of events, Brazilian superstar Neymar has reportedly expressed his desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer, with a preference to return to his former club, Barcelona.
This comes amidst a challenging summer for PSG, following the departure of Lionel Messi and the ongoing dispute with Kylian Mbappe.
Despite three years remaining on his £25m-per-year contract, Neymar seems ready to leave the club. While a return to Barcelona appears to be Neymar’s first choice, the Spanish club’s financial woes doubt their ability to secure his services.
The Brazilian forward, who turns 31 this year, is not seen as a core part of new head coach Luis Enrique’s plan for rebuilding the team. As PSG aims to cultivate a younger, more driven squad, the club is reportedly open to parting ways with Neymar.
This news follows speculation about Chelsea’s interest in the player earlier this year. The recent departure of Lionel Messi and the ongoing contractual standoff with Kylian Mbappe have added to the turbulence at the club.
