This summer transfer market looks like it’s going to be an interesting one. A lot of big players are faced with uncertainty in their future and that does not leave out Brazil playmaker, Neymar. Despite PSG being convinced that he would renew his contract not long ago.
The Brazilian has been linked with a return to his former club Barcelona, though there are doubts about the Catalans’ ability to sanction his move and accommodate his salary.
Initially, Leonardo has been confident of the player’s renewal, though it seems now that the optimism appears to be failing like the teams bid for a champion’s league trophy. When asked about Neymar’s future, He said:
“We have to be calm about everything,”
When he was talking to El Chiringuito on Sunday, in Barcelona watching PSG’s women’s team lose to Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final.
Leonardo refused to say any more, despite being asked specifically about Neymar and 21 year old Kylian Mbappe. He continued by saying:
“Today I’ve come here to watch the women’s team,” he said.
“Unfortunately we’ve lost.”
PSG have been trying to renew both Mbappe and Neymar’s contracts, with just one year to run on each of their deals. Both players are on the radar of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
