Neymar wants to leave PSG

PSG’s Brazilian winger is considering his return to Catalan Barcelona. The reason for that is unsuccessful performance of the Parisians in the Champions League as well as absence of individual awards for the past year.

Last year the world of football was shaken by the news of Neymar’s transfer to the French Ligue 1 for the record 222 million euros, which the footballer paid Barcelona from his pocket. Having arrived in Paris the Brazilian talked to the club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who promised him a victory in the Champions League and individual awards from France Football and FIFA. However, after one year of play at Parc des Princes the winger feels discomfort.

The main reason for Neymar’s departure from Barcelona was Messi’s influence on the club and footballers. According to the Brazilian, Blaugranas’ ten prevented him from unleashing completely and he was in the shadow of the five-time Ballon D’Or winner. Having moved to Paris, the situation changed only for worse. If Messi is thirty for now and the dusk of his career will soon begin, then Mbappe, purchased from in the middle of last season, is 19 years old and his path in football only begins. However, the Frenchman is already a part of symbolic teams, has become the best young player in the World Cup and is leading the race for the best young footballer award of the year award according to bookmakers.

Therefore Neymar’s motive is understandable, but will Barcelona agree to the Brazilian’s return remains a mystery. At the same time, there might be problems for PSG on the right wing of attack. Di Maria is not happy with his salary and he doesn’t make concessions with the management. The Parisians protest against the Argentine’s salary of 12 million euros a year. The winger’s contract with the Red and Blues expires next year, after which the player will become a free agent.

Despite the situation, bookmakers insist on the favorites in battle for Neymar being the same – Real Madrid. The odds on the Brazilian to try on Los Blancos’ kit in the upcoming summer transfer window are 2/1. At the same time, the British bookmaking company Ladbrokes gives similar preferences also on Mbappe’s move to Real (2/1) as well as Hazard’s (2/1), who are having an efficient start of the season.
