Many top clubs in the Premier League have been alerted to the probable availability of PSG forward Neymar. The Brazilian player is enjoying a stellar year in PSG, recording just 17 goals along with 16 assists in 28 games, even though the recent slump at PSG has cast doubt over the long-term future at the club.
The 31-year-old is under contract until 2024 and while Paris Saint Germain isn’t rushing to offload Neymar, they are taken to be open to his probable departure at the end of the season and sources confirm that many Premier League sides have spoken about a potential deal.
It is believed that intermediaries have spoken to Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle, and Manchester City informing the clubs about the interest in Neymar in a move to the Premier League and his potential availability. Neymar’s name had also been mentioned at the time of the recent meeting between Todd Boehly, the Chelsea co-owner, and Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the PSG counterpart that had been scheduled to discuss some topics.
Boehly had held meetings regularly with many leading executives across Europe in an attempt for boosting his connections and it’s understood he scheduled a meeting with Al-Khelaifi for discussing the failed loan move of Hakim Ziyech and his switch to PSG wasn’t finalized last month. While Ziyech had been the primary subject, the discussion included the future of Neymar, with Boehly open to making a high-profile signing. According to sources, Boehly is the possible availability of Neymar.
Neymar had become a part of PSG in 2017 summer in a record €222 million deal and had a mixed-game spell in France. The Brazilian member has lifted 4 Ligue 1 title but has failed to inspire the Champions League glory, which was supposed to follow his signing.
