How Neymar’s PSG future could depend on Liverpool conflict
Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain future could depend on them beating Liverpool one week from now — with Real Madrid waiting patiently to pounce with a £500million deal.
The French giants engage Jurgen Klopp’s side on Wednesday confronting the prospect of a humiliating Champions League exit if they lose.
Also, being dumped out of Europe before the season has even reached the half way stage could set the wheels in motion for Real to make their move.
Spanish title Marca has lifted the lid on the prospect of a £265million bargain which would see Neymar coming back to La Liga.
There have been proposals previous club Barcelona would still be interested in taking the Brazilian back to the Nou Camp two years after he quit.
In any case, Barca come up short on the monetary assets to stump up such a massive fee and then come up with wages of £44m-a-year on top of that.
Real do have the ability to find the money, and in president Florentino Perez they have somebody who has needed to sign Neymar for the past ten years.
For the time being the protecting European bosses have stayed upbeat to remain out of sight, unwilling to push hard for the forward.
In any case, that could change if PSG wind up slamming out in the gathering stages, leaving the 26-year-old stuck in a French league which has become all too easy for the side.
Neymar is now thought to be disrupted with life in Paris and open to the prospect of making the switch back to Spain.
