Mercato Mercato – PSG: Al-Khelafi throws a chill on the future of Neymar

After announcing a change of era in terms of mentality, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelafi, did not confirm that Neymar will have his place in the new project.

Neymar is no longer in the odor of saints at PSG …

You have to change to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that turn a game upside down. (…) The one who wants to stay in his comfort, who does not want to fight, he will stay aside.

During an interview granted this Tuesday to the newspaper Le Parisien, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelafi, told the end of the sequins in the capital (see here). Reading this description, you can’t help but think that Neymar is one of the screwed players.

N. Al-Khelafi – some will come and some will go

Asked in the crowd by the Madrid newspaper Marca to find out if the 30-year-old striker is part of the new project envisaged by PSG, the Qatari boss also gave an answer that says a lot. You can’t talk about these issues in the media, some will come and some will go, but these are private negotiations.was content to slip the leader, without excluding any option therefore.

Lewandowski’s shadow

Often injured in knockout matches in the Champions League, the Brazilian international has failed to meet expectations since his resounding arrival for the record sum of 222 million euros in 2017. In recent weeks, several rumors have claimed that the former Barcelonan will not be retained in the event of an attractive offer. The arrival, for the time being unlikely, of Robert Lewandowski, who is one of the targets of PSG, could definitively seal the fate of the Auriverde if it were to come true.

One problem remains: Neymar was extended last year until June 2025 and has no intention of giving up his imposing salary of more than 4 million euros gross per month, the highest in Ligue 1. Among his suitors, only Newcastle would have the means to align themselves with his moluments and the Ney does not wish to join the Magpies. I have a contract with Paris Saint-Germain, so there is no other choice (than to be there next season, editor’s note), recalled the South American at the end of May for Canal+. It remains to be seen whether Al-Khelafi has taken it into his head to make him change his mind…
