The possibility of Neymar leaving Paris Saint-Germain for Saudi Arabia is growing.
French media ‘RMC Sport’ said on the 13th (Korean time), “We are now entering a decisive time to decide Neymar’s future.”
Neymar recently announced that he is leaving Paris Saint-Germain. After digesting all the Asian tours and returning, he shook Paris Saint-Germain with a surprise statement. Angered, Paris Saint-Germain prepared to break up with Neymar.
Neymar was excluded from the official French Ligue 1 profile shooting schedule ahead of the start of the 2023-24 season. Following this, coach Luis Enrique and general manager Luis Campos decided to remove Neymar from their squad. In fact, Neymar missed Lorient in the first round. Enrique plans to lead Paris Saint-Germain without Neymar.
Neymar’s likely destination is Saudi Arabia. The most desired destination is Barcelona, his parents, but the financial situation is not easy. The only place that can afford Neymar’s high transfer fee and annual salary is Saudi Arabia, which is shaking the European soccer world with oil money.
Among them, Al-Hilal is the most active. Al-Hilal is the most prestigious club with 18 championships in the Saudi Arabia League. This summer, they made a wild move by signing Kalidou Koulibaly, Sergei Milinkovic-Savic, Ruben Neves and Malcolm. Although it failed, he also tried to recruit Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi (Inter Miami).
Neymar is also promised an astronomical amount. It is known that the transfer fee alone will exceed 100 million euros (approximately 145.8 billion won). Neymar was initially not in favor of a move to Saudi Arabia, but there are reasons for things to change. Because Al-Hilal can provide a plan to play for Barcelona.
Neymar is reluctant to leave for the Middle East right away. He seems to agree to go back to Barcelona and play for a year instead. Neymar wants to win the Copa America next year. For this, he wants to play in Europe until this season. Al-Hilal is discussing signing Neymar and sending him on a one-year loan to Barcelona.
Spanish media ‘Sport’ said, “One of the intermediaries leading the complex negotiations is Finney Zahavi. Zahavi met Barcelona president Joan Laporta and Saudi Arabian professional football federation president last May,” adding, “Neymar, Al Hilal. , Barcelona are in touch with both the parties to the tangled negotiations and the Barcelona side, which is why the rental option is open.”
“It is impossible for Barcelona to sign Neymar through direct negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain. Therefore, working with Al-Hilal is important,” he said. added.
Neymar has improved his fitness ahead of the new season. He has not played for a long time since he injured his ankle in the second half of last season and had to be operated on. Until the opening, the expectation that returning was difficult was dominant, but he quickly improved his physical condition while accompanying him on the Asian tour.
In the friendly match he played in Japan, there was an evaluation that his body had not yet been built as he only guarded the bench, but that changed after he came to Korea. Neymar, who met domestic fans in Busan, made a surprise start against Jeonbuk Hyundai. And he played the full 90 minutes.
He still had his skills. Neymar scored 2 goals and 1 assist against Jeonbuk and was involved in all goals scored by Paris Saint-Germain. Moreover, while playing full-time, he made it clear that there was no problem in participating in the opening game. This is why Al Hilal and Barcelona want it.
As Neymar is leaning towards Saudi Arabia, it seems that the company with Lee Kang-in will be short-lived. After Lee Kang-in joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer, he quickly became friends with Neymar. Throughout the Asian tour, which went back and forth between Japan and Korea, Lee Kang-in joked around and talked to them, showing off their friendship. Not only in Korea but also abroad, people are closely watching Lee Kang-in and Neymar’s romance.메이저사이트
