Neymar Jr. is one of the outstanding players of the European football team Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Taking advantage of the evolution of cryptocurrencies, the French team launched its fan token, a movement that generated good financial results for the club.
However, the club’s token has been devalued, among some of the reasons we have the general fall in the crypto asset market.
A possible departure of the Brazilian player may have helped to plummet the value of the crypto asset.
Paris Saint Germain bought Neymar in 2017. At the time, the signing was one of the most expensive in the world.
The signing had great repercussion, as the player arrived at PSG after winning important titles with Barcelona.
Despite being a European club, the owners of Paris Saint Germain are princes of Qatar, an Arab country.
Investments in the team come with the dream of winning the UEFA Champions League, one of the most important championships in world football.
However, according to information, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi no longer thinks of Neymar as a member of the team next season.
Impact of the probable dismissal of Neymar Jr.
Even with a millionaire investment, the most the French team achieved was a second place in the Champions League in 2020.
PSG lost the title after losing 1-0 to German team Bayern Munich, with 1 goal from Frenchman Kingsley Coman.
Spanish newspaper El País reported that the command to change the squad’s lineup for the new season was given to Mbappé.
With that, the Brazilian would not have his contract renewed, being able to leave the club in the next FIFA transfer window. The new club that will have Neymar was not revealed, and one of the obstacles to this is the high monthly cost of the player.
However, it seems that PSG fans didn’t like the possibility of not having the striker in their squad anymore. This dissatisfaction can be seen by the 7% drop in the value of the PSG fan token in the last 24 hours. Its current quote is $6.18.
Paris Saint Germain was very successful with the launch of its token, reaching a value of US$ 59.00 in its quotation in April 2021.
It is noteworthy that the PSG token was used in the signing of Lionel Messi. In his transfer, part of the payment of the Argentine player was in PSG fan tokens.
