Where will Neymar play next season? This question is very interested by PSG fans, especially when Chelsea has a move to care about the Brazilian striker. However, according to L’Equipe daily, even if Messi leaves PSG, Neymar will not be affected. Neymar’s poor performance in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern made his critics even more encroached. However, what Neymar showed when confronting Lille (4-3, round 24 of Ligue 1 2022/23) made them think again.
The Brazilian forward has defended brilliantly as in the first leg, providing his 11th Ligue 1 assist while also scoring his 13th in the French league this season. In this number 10 role, Neymar likes to play behind Messi and Kylian Mbappe, and believes that PSG can still dream big in the Champions League. Therefore, Neymar personally has no intention of leaving the Parc des Princes at this time. Even when he was “rejected” last time (the PSG leader wanted to liquidate at a cheap price in the summer of 2022), Neymar still did everything to be able to stay in the French capital team.
Neymar said he could do it. After focusing on training, weight loss, compliance with all rules, discipline and early training at the beginning of the season, the former Barcelona striker had a booming half season. Even if his form dropped after the 2022 World Cup due to the effects of an ankle injury as well as psychological trauma because Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals, the statistics that Neymar has this season with PSG are also very good. impression. Specifically, the Brazilian player has scored 18 goals, made 17 assists in all competitions for PSG since the beginning of the season.
For Neymar right now, PSG is everything he needs at the end of his career with money, fame and the comfort of being able to play his way. If the contract ends in June 2027, then Neymar will be 35 years old. That is the ideal retirement age for a South American artist who likes to party, live freely and freely like Neymar. “He never lied about who he was. Neymar is always honest with himself. He understands the wave of criticism when he doesn’t play well and tries his best to find his form so that he can stay until the end of his contract with PSG,” a relative of Neymar said.
In fact, until now, only Chelsea and Newcastle can afford Neymar’s salary – about 4 million euros a month after tax. And, only these two English teams have had transfer rumors related to Neymar within the past 1 year. So, if he leaves, choosing a suitable destination will be Neymar’s biggest obstacle. PSG did not receive notable offers. Neymar has no intention of leaving Parc des Princes until the end of his contract.
