Brazilian forward Neymar Jr. has no intention of leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the near future, according to Spanish publication MARCA. The striker informed everyone at the club of his decision.
The 30-year-old striker arrived in the French capital from FC Barcelona in the summer of 2017 for a world record fee of around €222 million. However, his career did not follow the upward trajectory expected for the most expensive player of all time.
According to the aforementioned source, Paris Saint-Germain will have to part ways with some players this summer to balance their accounts. MARCA also reported that UEFA asked the Ligue 1 giants to explain their financial situation, which currently shows a loss of around €224 million.
La Liga president Javier Tebas also accused Paris Saint-Germain of paying around 600 million euros in wages. That number doesn’t even include Kylian Mbappe’s new three-year contract.
With all these financial problems, PSG needs to reduce its workforce to balance its accounts. One of those players who can help improve your financial situation is none other than Neymar.
The Brazilian striker is currently under contract with the club until the summer of 2025. That means the Paris giants can get a substantial transfer fee for their playmaker.
However, his salary is an issue. The 30-year-old Brazilian has an annual income of around €50 million before taxes. However, few clubs in the world can pay such exorbitant salaries for a player. Even if PSG decide to sell the striker, Neymar has no intention of leaving Paris anytime soon.
Paris Saint-Germain have two highly paid forwards, the other being Lionel Messi. However, the club prefers not to sell the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner after his arrival last summer with just one year left on his contract.
