The Mirror reported recently that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is prepared to let Neymar and other stars leave as the club look to change their philosophy in order to win the Champions League.
Neymar is said to be on Manchester United’s shortlist this summer as rumours ramp up of a possible exit from PSG for the Brazilian.
After Chelsea were reportedly keen on talking to PSG about a deal for Neymar, Foot Mercato are now saying that Manchester United are looking at the Brazilian’s situation ahead of the summer.
However, the winger’s situation is not simple: he has recurring injury issues (he is currently out with an ankle injury), one of the highest wages in football at £956,000 per week (per Capology), and a lot of baggage when it comes to endorsements and image rights.
The only glimmer of hope United fans have for Neymar becoming a Red Devil is a prospective Qatari takeover of the Manchester club, which might play a significant role in his choice to relocate from Paris to Manchester.
To summarize, the aforementioned issues are the major roadblocks to this prospective trade, but with PSG willing to let Neymar leave this summer, don’t rule anything out.
