Neymar and Verratti both had a bad season with PSG. Neymar suffered a serious injury and had to be out of action from February until the end of the season. The Brazilian star also refused to sit still, but was also involved in the noise surrounding his conflict with the club, and is said to have “played badly” with his teammate Kylian Mbappe when he liked posts attacking PSG and Mbappe on social networks.
Meanwhile, which is considered the “soul” of PSG’s midfield, but this season, Verratti has fallen miserably. The Italian midfielder’s average and above average matches count less than two hands. As for the bad games, underpowered and making mistakes, there are countless.
Therefore, both Neymar and Verratti (along with Lionel Messi) are being considered by PSG fanatics as “parasites”, the club’s “cash-drawers”, who no longer deserve to appear at the Parc. des Princes or Camp des Loges headquarters.
The fact that the ultras (crazy fans) gathered at the club’s headquarters, as well as gathered, cursed and angered at the private homes of these stars earlier this month was like the last drop of water for Neymar and Verratti’s disappointment. Both have asked to leave this summer. And PSG has accepted, ready to listen to all offers.
An era of PSG closes when three stars Messi, Neymar, Verratti can simultaneously disappear from the Park of the Princes. If the Argentine superstar is considering between Saudi Arabia and the American Professional League (MLS), Verratti is currently in the sights of Milan and Juventus, and Neymar can go to Chelsea.
According to Le Parisien, Neymar has expressed his desire to leave PSG with his team, and they have informed the leader of the French capital team. Among the three teams that have emerged as Neymar’s potential landing this summer, including MU, Newcastle and Chelsea, the London team is where the Brazilian striker can prioritize.
Since the summer of 2022, football consultant Luis Campos has been trying to “eject” Neymar from the Park of the Princes to give development space for young French talents. However, there is no place to “contain” Neymar because of the huge salary he is enjoying at PSG.
The current time will be even more difficult for PSG to sell Neymar, because his injury is a big obstacle. However, defending champion France is willing to lower Neymar’s price, not even ruling out the possibility of pushing him on loan, and PSG is still responsible for most of his salary.
This is a relatively attractive offer, if you look at the explosive phase in the first leg of Neymar this season. Just being serious, maintaining the inspiration to play football, Neymar will embroider flowers and brocade on the field and nothing will stop the passionate Samba dancer. However, these moments of Neymar at PSG are not many.
What about Verratti? He used to be a “hot” item sought by both Real Madrid and Barcelona. But the last two seasons, especially this season, Verratti’s form has gone downhill dramatically. After 11 years with the Park of the Princes, Verratti has run out of motivation and needs a change to create a new turning point.
Returning to play for a club in Serie A is the most reasonable option for Verratti at the moment. Because he is a rare Italian player who has never played in Serie A, but has been with a foreign team (PSG) for 11 seasons. According to the Italian press, both Milan and Juve are considering recruiting this small midfielder.
In fact, Verratti will most likely prefer to wear the Juventus shirt, because he has been a fan of the Old Lady since he was a child. However, a salary of 12 million euros per season after tax is the biggest obstacle for Verratti to join Juve. It is also not excluded that the midfielder will join David Beckham’s Inter Miami. Not long ago, Verratti also had a long chat with Beckham, when the former England international returned to visit his old team.
It seems that leaving PSG this summer is an inevitable outcome for Neymar and Verratti.
