Neymar came to Paris Saint-Germain in mid-2017 with a controversial and scandalous departure from Barcelona. Then the French paid the clause of 222 million euros to keep the then Brazilian star of the azulgranas.

Today, pending the start of the 2022-23 season in Europe, PSG seeks to reduce costs and Neymar He is one of the players that the Parisian club is willing to see leave, in a squad of heavyweights that also includes Lionel Messi and the recently renewed, Kylian Mbappé.

As reported by L’Equipe, Neymar’s high salary, which reaches 50 million euros gross per season, has PSG seeking his exit after a balance sheet that showed 224 million losses.

And together with the readjustment in Mbappé’s contract, now more than ever PSG needs to reduce the costs of the squad, but there is a big problem: Neymar does not plan to move, with a contract until June 30, 2025.

As stated by the renowned French midfielder, the Brazilian striker has already told the PSG board that he will remain at the club and leaving the French capital has never crossed his mind.

Thus, among PSG’s options appears the departure of Messi, who has not been able to adapt to the Gauls. However, the Argentine has one year left on his contract and it will be difficult for the attacker to leave on his own account or through another club that takes charge of the economic operation.

And in Europe there are already several who postulate that the dressing room of the Parisians will not be hunky-dory next season: “PSG’s dressing room, in any case, is going to turn around for next season. Before, the leadership was more distributed and coexistence, within the differences that could arise on a day-to-day basis, was acceptable thanks in large part to the right hand of Mauricio Pochettino”, says Marca.

The Spanish media states that “now everything is different, the club has given itself over to Mbappé and many players have not been happy with everything that is happening, starting with the act of presenting the renewal minutes before a match. To make matters worse, Al Khelaifi’s constant allusions to the footballing goodness of French and his status as the best in the world have not been shared by many either.
