Neymar confirmed last Sunday his desire to continue at PSG and everything indicates that the French team will announce in the coming weeks the extension of its contract with the Parisian team. The Brazilian will continue to lead a project he hopes he will join Leo Messi. Weeks ago he made it clear that he wants to play alongside the Argentine next season and the French team is the best placed to take over the captain of Barcelona. The filtration of his contract by Barcelona could mean the final push that takes the ’10’ out of the Camp Nou. Will you form an attack partner again with Neymar?
“I feel happy. It has changed a lot, I could not say exactly why, if it is me or something else, but today I feel good. I have adapted and I am calmer. I want to stay at the Paris Saint Germain», Declared Neymar in an interview with Telefoot. The Brazilian ensures an improvement in his sensations and has found joy in the French team, where he is determined to continue to try to conquer the long-awaited Champions League that the Parisian team has been pursuing for years. Obviously, with the presence of Leo Messi in Paris this would be easier. And this is what Neymar is after.
His words come at a time when the departure of Leo Messi from Barcelona at the end of the season seems to have no turning back, especially after the recent leak of your contract at a time of maximum economic crisis in the Barça entity. Some statements that have greater impact as a result of others from the Brazilian himself, who assured that he hoped to play again with Leo Messi. “I want to play with him again. What I want most is to enjoy with him on the court again “said the former Barça player. “Next year we have to do it,” he added after a meeting of Champions League at the beginning of December and days before the draw for the round of 16 held a Barcelona – PSG clash.
At that moment, the words of Neymar made clear their desire to share a new dressing room with the Argentine, without specifying if such a circumstance could occur in a return to Barcelona by the Canarinha player or if he was opening the door to Paris. With Neymar’s clarification that he wants to continue at PSG, it seems clearer that the Brazilian awaits the signing of Leo Messi by the club Nasser Al Khelaifi.
PSG, on the lookout for Messi
The Paris Saint Germain is one of the best placed to get hold of Leo Messi, whose departure from Barcelona could be finalized at the end of the season. The leak of his contract sentences him and seems the definitive push for him to leave the club. The Parisian club has not hidden its interest in Leo Messi. His sports director, Leonardo, left open the possibility of signing the Argentine in statements to France Football. «Our chair for Messi is reserved just in case, “said the Brazilian. Some words that felt very bad at Barcelona and especially the presidential candidate, Joan Laporta.
The big problem of signing Leo Messi by PSG is related to the wage bill. Neymar charge around 35 millions by season, Mbappe he is approaching 18 and the Argentine would land in Paris with emoluments that would not be inferior to those perceived by the Brazilian. To make room for Messi’s payroll, PSG would have to release a large salary that could be that of Mbappe, which is still in a period of “reflection” on its renewal. If the French star is still in the squad, PSG will have to do financial engineering games to be able to shelter Messi in Paris.
