In March 2021, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano announced that Neymar had reached an oral agreement on a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The two parties have not yet announced the extension of cooperation until June 30, 2026. On April 4 this year, the Catalan radio station “RAC1” announced that the players are about to change their minds and hope to return to FC Barcelona.
If Neymar decides not to sign a new contract with PSG, his contract will only be valid until June 30 next year. This means that the upcoming summer transfer window may be the last chance to make money on Brazilians. FC Barcelona, which has been chairman of Joan Laporta since March 17 (Wednesday), can look for opportunities here.
According to a report in the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the locker room in Barcelona hopes Neymar will return. According to the newspaper’s reporter, Neymar’s desire to return to Spain is because the football player has not yet reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain. The club is interested in Ousmane Dembele and it should not be ruled out that he will be included in the deal between PSG and Barcelona.
Paris Saint-Germain showed interest in Antoin Griezmann, and the football player did not want to be a bargaining chip in negotiations between clubs. In addition, the French also claimed to be supporters of the Marseille Olympics. The main obstacle for Barcelona is Neymar’s financial needs. She hopes that the players agree to reduce their salaries and withdraw his “claims for unpaid bonuses for renewal with the club.” The amount we are talking about is 43.6 million euros.
Neymar has played 21 games in all competitions this season, scoring 13 goals and 8 assists. In terms of assists, Angel Di Maria (13) and Kylian Mbappé (9) are better than the Brazilian.
