The Brazilian striker has spent five years at the club after arriving for a world-record fee in 2017 and earns upwards of £24 million per year in wages. But since he arrived in the French capital, he has failed to help PSG break their Champions League duck and has often drawn the wrath of fans and his critiques due to his lavish lifestyle.
According to AS, he is now weighing up a move away due to not feeling loved by the club.
Recently, PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi spoke out about the team’s poor performance last season, suggesting that some players had to leave for the team to achieve its full potential.
Although he refused to confirm that Neymar would still be at the club in 2022-23′, it appears the 30-year-old feels his time is up in Paris.
While speaking about the possibility of selling Neymar, Al-Khelaifi said:
“A possible departure of Neymar this summer?
“What I can tell you is that we expect all players to do a lot more than last season. A lot more!”
“They all have to be 100%. Obviously, we weren’t good enough to go far. The objective for next season is clear: to work at 200 per cent every day. To give everything we have for this jersey, give the maximum, and we will see the result.
“You have to become humble again. You have to change to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that change a game.”
Neymar reportedly felt saddened by the president’s comments, and this could have moved him closer to the exit door.
However, Neymar’s wages at PSG, has made any transfer this summer very difficult. And given that he still has a contract that runs for another three years at Parc des Princes, he will command a sizable transfer fee.
But, the Serie A club have informed the players’ intermediaries that they cannot afford his current wages.
At this point, unfortunately, no one cares about Neymar’s legacy in PSG, but, given his situation in Paris, he needs to look outwards and ensure gametime, to be in proper shape before World Cup. Brazil is currently holding #1 position in FIFA ranking and Neymar would probably be representing his country for the last time in FIFA World Cup.
