Neymar ‘considers leaving PSG this summer after feeling the target of Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s criticism of the team’s performance last season’ but his salary and transfer fee mean a departure from Paris this summer is unlikely
- Neymar contemplates his future at PSG after spending five years at the club
- PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi recently criticized the team’s players
- Neymar felt targeted by Al Khelaifi’s comments and is now open to leaving
- However, due to his salary and a possible transfer fee, it is unlikely that he will leave
Neymar is reportedly considering leaving PSG this summer after five years at the club.
The 30-year-old arrived in the French capital in 2017 for a world record fee and earns more than £24 million a year in wages, but has failed to help PSG break their Champions League duck during this period.
He is now considering leaving because he does not feel loved by the club, according to RMC Sports†
Neymar could leave PSG this summer after spending five years with the French club
PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi has talked about making changes at PSG this summer
PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi recently spoke out about the team’s shortcomings last season, refusing to confirm that Neymar would still be with the club in 2022-23.
A possible departure for Neymar this summer? What I can tell you is that we expect all players to do a lot more than last season. Much more!’ Al Khelaifi told Le Parisien via RMC Sport.
“They all have to be 100%. We were clearly not good enough to get far. For the coming season, the objective is clear: to work at 200% every day. To give everything we have for this jersey, give the maximum and we’ll see the result.
“You have to humble yourself again. You have to make substitutions to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that change a game.”
Neymar felt targeted by Al Khelaifi’s recent comments about PSG’s displays last season
Obviously, Neymar felt targeted by the president’s comments, and this could have brought him closer to the exit door.
However, a transfer already looks difficult, thanks to Neymar’s lucrative salary and a potentially hefty transfer fee.
He is one of the highest paid players in world football and has three years left at PSG, suggesting he wouldn’t leave cheaply.
The Brazilian forward has been offered to Juventus and his representatives have spoken with the Serie A giants, as reported by AS†
However, the Italian club has informed the players’ agents that they cannot afford his current wages, and it looks unlikely he will play at PSG this summer unless his wage demands change.
