Mercato / Ligue 1 – Real, Chelsea, Barça, Juve …: For Neymar, options in question


  • Why is it possible?
Chelsea changed era. But his ambitions remained intact. To afford Neymar would allow the new owner, Todd Boehly, to send a first big signal to the competition. Especially since sportingly, the transfer would not be as absurd as the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, that he would nevertheless consideraccording to several serious British media.

League 1

Neymar is considering leaving PSG!


Thomas Tuchel is still in love with his talent, and has not really been convinced by the players whose role is to create imbalances at Chelsea (Pulisic, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi…). Then there is the wink: at a time when Neymar was not yet Neymar, Chelsea were the first club to offer him a contract. It was in 2010, three years before his arrival in Europe, in Barcelona.

  • What makes the transfer difficult
The profusion of goods in attack. The Blues have a very large number of offensive elements in their workforce. To make room for the Brazilian superstar, you first have to slim down. If the loan of its largest investment, namely Romelu Lukakuat Inter, had just been confirmed, the London board would have only postponed the problem.

Is Lukaku’s return to Chelsea the biggest flop in Premier League history?

And whatever people say, Chelsea are now a step or two behind Manchester City and Liverpool in England. Casually, Neymar has never played in a team that was not one of the favorites for the title in his championship, since he arrived in Europe. It is difficult to know to what extent this type of challenge may interest him.


  • Why is it possible?

After another complicated season (only 4th in Serie A, eliminated in the round of 16 by Villarreal), the Old Lady is likely to experience a hectic summer. While Paulo Dybala is leaving the Turin club, and the latter seemed set to rely on young players to get back on track, the probable arrivals of Paul Pogba, whose lease at Manchester United ends on June 30, or Angel Di Maria, at the end of the contract with PSG, suggest another direction. That of a club that will not deprive itself to achieve good business.

Like the questions around Matthijs de Ligt, that the Piedmontese could let Chelsea slip away in exchange for Timo Werner, as well as a check. Neymar, in addition to the objective of restoring his superbness to the club, could therefore be tempted by a sports project where he would be well surrounded. The latest rumors also claim that the player’s entourage has made contact with the Bianconeria sign that, on the side of the former Barcelonan, the idea does not leave you indifferent.

  • What makes the transfer difficult

Difficult to imagine Juventus in capacity to carry out the transfer of the summer. At the end of 2019, it was already estimated that the club was weighed down by 400 million euros in debt. And since then, bad sports results and the Covid-19 pandemic have been there…

The failure of the passage of another superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, on the side of the Juventus Stadium, left traces, both among the supporters and on the management side. Hence the skepticism that reigns around this hypothetical movement, while Paris had spent, in 2017, 222 million euros to attract the “Ney”.


  • Why is it possible?

Quite simply because the Magpies, under the Saudi flag for almost a year, are one of the only formations in the world to be able to afford the Brazilian. His long-term lease, and his salary (40 million euros annually) indicate that we will have to pay the price to attract him out of PSG, which could still make an effort to part with him.

After a season where they managed to keep their place in the Premier League, the black and white could make an impression and affirm their ambitions by managing to recruit the most expensive player in history. Who could be tempted by the prospect of being, this time, the only superstar on board, something he wanted in Paris but which quickly took the water with the hatching of Kylian Mbappé and the arrival, the last year, from Messi.

Allan Saint-Maximin’s teammates have another advantage: the presence in the squad of Brazilians Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes, who could facilitate his adaptation to the team.

  • What makes the transfer difficult

Newcastle, however, does not really have the profile to please Neymar. Anyone who likes the bustle of Paris should face a much quieter environment. And then, we are still talking about the North East of England. For the Brazilian, eager for the beach, sun and warm temperatures, we are far from ticking all the boxes.

Despite a stadium often described as one of the hottest in the Kingdom, it is also the 30-year-old’s ability to adapt to the Premier League that is in question. Already jostled in the French championship, how will he respond to the physical intensity and the commitment offered by all the teams on the other side of the Channel?

Also, will Neymar decide to leave a club where, despite the turbulence, he continues to win titles, to go to the highest championship in the world?

Manchester United

Because with Manchester United, anything is possible. The club’s choices have long been punctuated by its marketing operations more than by its sporting ambitions. In the event of the departure of CR7, the Red Devils would recover another star planet. And if the Portuguese stays… they would have two.

On the ground, the two men could live together. Another major asset: the Mancunian club is probably the only candidate capable of satisfying the Brazilian financially.

Is CR7 right to be worried? “We should have realized this last year…”

  • What makes the transfer difficult

Everything Manchester United tries to build. The Mancunian board has probably resolved to give the keys to the house to its new manager, Erik ten Hag. And something tells us that the former Ajax coach will not push for a player who, in his last seasons in Paris, has not always taken part in collective efforts.

Bringing in Neymar would make this umpteenth new start a stillborn project. And would risk putting Jadon Sancho a little more in difficulty, just one year after his transfer to 85 million euros.


  • Why is it possible?

“Who doesn’t like Neymar? He’s an exceptional player”. The compliment is signed Joan Laporta, president of FC Barcelona, ​​a month ago. If the story had ended badly between Neymar and the Blaugrana and that his departure, after 4 years spent in Catalonia, for France had been perceived as a crime of lèse-majesté, relations have clearly calmed down since.

The player would therefore not have too much difficulty in resuming his habits. And then, the dolphin of Real Madrid in La Liga this season is struggling to snatch Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. If this major movement of the transfer window ends up falling apart, the Spaniards could try everything to ensure, all the same, a resounding blow this summer.

  • What makes the transfer difficult

The Catalan club is plagued by debt (1.3 billion euros, according to Laporta). The announcement of an agreement on TV rights with the investment fund CVC, the company All Sport Finance as well as the investment bank Goldman Sachs caused the Barcelonians to breathe, but for Neymar, we are far from 40-50 million euros claimed for Lewandowski.

And also, what place for the Brazilian within the team? While Xavi said he wanted to rely on the nuggets out of La Masia, the profile of the Brazilian does not seem essential to this formation which, in any case, will have to degrease before attracting him. Beyond these financial questions, Laporta had specified that, on this choice, it is the world champion who would decide. “Neymar does not displease me”said the coach, at the end of May…

real Madrid

To forget. Florentino Pérez wanted to offer a new galactic recruit to his socios but for the first time, the player he dreamed of turned his back on him. The Madrid leader has always appreciated Neymar and he will probably never have such a great opportunity to fulfill this old fantasy again. Which would be, by the way, a nice affront to FC Barcelona.

Real still has significant financial means since it has been relatively tightening its belt for two years. With Militão, Casemiro, Vinicius and Rodrygo, the Auriverde star will not be out of place.

And now Fofana: is Paris going too far in its made in L1 tracks?

  • What makes the transfer difficult

So far, Real do not give the impression of wanting to compensate for the failure of Mbappé’s transfer. Even less with a player relatively unpopular with the Merengues. An arrival of Neymar could slow down the exponential progression of Vinicius.

The Brazilian’s repeated injuries have always been an obstacle to this transfer that Casa Blanca has already considered on several occasions. We don’t see why that would have changed. Especially after the bad Eden Hazard experience.
