Zinedine Zidane already pulls the strings Paris Saint Germain. The French coach knows that he is the great candidate to sit on the Parisian bench and only one signature separates him from taking office. While the formalities are finalized, the man from Marseille is making progress on the 2022-23 squad. Not only has he requested the signings of Paul Pogba and Ousmane Dembélé, also deals with the issue of departures. To the surprise of the entire world, the former Real Madrid coach does not intend to count on Neymar and hopes that the senior staff of the club in the Ligue 1 put it up for sale, according to information from the Catalan newspaper El Nacional.
The aforementioned source explains that, although he is one of the best players in the world and a close friend of Kylian Mbappé in the locker room, the Brazilian forward is not part of PSG’s plans given his discreet performance last season. Also, he doesn’t like his behavior off the pitch.
“There is another star in the squad who does seem to be on the starting ramp, because ‘Zizou’ is not so optimistic about him. Indeed, it treats of Neymar Junior, that in the last weeks also has carried out an incredible quantity of rumours. His performance and his attitude leaves a lot to be desired, and he has exhausted the patience of his own fans, and also, of the board”, The National publishes.
Of course, the Parisians are not willing to give it away to any club. The Brazilian striker was valued at 90 million euros. No more no less. That is the figure that in the Parc des Princes they consider fair for his departure, after having paid 222 ‘kilos’ for the player from São Paulo in the European summer of 2017.
Despite the fact that he renewed his contract with PSG less than a year ago, and until 2025, Paris Saint-Germain hopes to make good money with his sale to finalize the arrival of other signings. However, as he warned him a few weeks ago, the Brazilian would not be willing to leave the Parc des Princes.
“I still have a contract with Paris Saint-Germain, which is for three more years. I’m here, with the beeps and whistles that they send against us”, were the first words of the Brazilian, in an interview for ESPN, about the complicated relationship with the fans.
According to Transfermarkt, a portal specialized in footballer appraisal, Neymar is valued at 90 million euros. PSG’s ’10’ arrived in France in mid-2017 from Barcelona for 222 million euros. So far, he is the most expensive signing in football history.
