Neymar, 31-Paris Saint-Germain, could pull on a Manchester United shirt this summer. It’s been ‘shockingly’ reported that talks have recently begun. If the move goes through, he would be playing in the English Premier League (EPL) for the first time in his career.
“Neymar could arrive at Old Trafford in the summer transfer window,” French outlet L’Equipe reported on Wednesday (Aug. 23), adding, “He has been linked to a number of EPL clubs, with United being the closest at this stage. They are understood to have recently opened transfer talks.”
Neymar’s contract expires in June 2025, according to reports. However, he is likely to leave this summer. He had originally planned to retire at Paris Saint-Germain, but following recent criticism from fans and a “release notice” from president Luiz Campos, the 58-year-old Portuguese is seriously considering a parting of ways.
In fact, Neymar was verbally abused and criticized by Paris Saint-Germain fans earlier this month and was even told to “leave now”. He was so shocked and hurt by this that he decided to end his stay with the club this summer.
If Neymar were to part ways with Paris Saint-Germain, his first priority was to return to his ‘home’ club Barcelona. However, Neymar has faced realistic obstacles, such as financial issues, and has been looking at other clubs. In the meantime, the Red Devils have recently been heavily linked with a move to United.
In particular, Neymar has reportedly received a request from his current Brazil national teammate and “best friend” Casemiro, 31, to play with him at United. However, negotiations are likely to hit a snag as Paris Saint-Germain want an outright transfer, while United prefer a loan. 메이저사이트
Neymar is a Brazilian forward who joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in August 2017. His €222 million transfer fee still stands as the most expensive in history.
However, his career has been a bit of a disappointment. His inconsistent performances and frequent injuries often left him disappointing, especially when it came to big games like the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League (UCL). In 173 career appearances, he has scored 118 goals and provided 77 assists.
