PSG open to letting Neymar leave


The novel for the possible departure of Neymar from Paris Saint Germain added a new chapter. L’Equipe, the prestigious sports publication in France, published a hard cover in its edition of this Wednesday against the star of world football.

“Neymar, the big lie,” the newspaper headline, referring to the secret plot about the conflicts that the Brazilian soccer player has with the PSG president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, who would be willing to part with the player for which he paid 222 million of euros in August 2017, the value of the exit clause that had established his previous club, Barcelona, ​​the institution to which he would be looking to return to play next season.

Within the note, the French media speaks of “poker game” on the internal negotiations that are carried out between Neymar and the leadership of the champion of Ligue 1, the First Division of French football. The publication states that, in spite of the public statements, both parties would be willing to reach an agreement to separate and get what each one wants.

“It is no longer revealing a secret to say that he (Neymar) is not happy in Paris”, they quote in L’Equipe, according to close sources that they could obtain in the inner circle of the Brazilian striker. A few weeks ago, but in France Football, another historic publication of France, the owner of the Parisian team was blunt in relation to the rumors of Neymar and his discontent in the team.

“I want players willing to give everything to defend the honor of the jersey and join the club project, those who do not want to, or do not understand, we see each other and talk about it.” Of course, there are contracts that must be respected, but now the priority is The total members of the project, nobody forced him to sign here, nobody pushed him in. He came knowingly to join a project, “said Al-Khelafi on the Neymar case.

Another of the situations that underlines the note of the French newspaper is the “stubborn” position of the Brazilian soccer player to force the farewell of PSG to return to Barcelona and join Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, his great goal. Within the contradictions that the conflict shows, L’Equipe distinguishes how many believe that from the club in Paris they try to convince the player to stay, while others encourage him to break relations to tire the leadership and achieve their exit.

One of the reasons that could lead to the continuity of Neymar in the PSG would be related to the strong contribution of Qatari money in the foundation carried out by the player in San Pablo and that the Qatar National Bank is a personal sponsor of the player.

Beyond the comments and the positions, in France they believe that if the case is not solved as soon as possible, Neymar will be part of the pre-season of the team led by the German Thomas Tuchel, since it is not convenient for him to assume a rebellious posture and not to be absent. of the practices of the team, something that Adrien Rabiot already did, which provoked freedom of action for the footballer of the French national team, who signed with Juventus of Italy.

The high contract that Neymar has -cobra 36 million euros per season- added to that from Barcelona would welcome the opportunity to re-count the Brazilian and add as part of payment in the pass between the culé team and the institution from France to Coutinho or Rakitic, it would be the solution to the problem that the two protagonists of this story have.

The Catalan club is one of the few with economic capacity to terminate the player’s contract, for the 120 million euros stipulated by its clause, and more to learn that two of the European soccer giants are not interested in the French striker. One of the teams with whom Griezmann had been linked is the PSG.

However, his coach, Thomas Tuchel, has denied his interest on Friday: “Griezmann could play in any team in the world and would like any coach, but it is not realistic,” said the German coach, who believes that the PSG should be strengthened with more defensive profile players to opt, at last, to really compete for the Champions League.

Another that is self-discarded in the bid is Manchester City, by mouth of his coach. In his appearance before the final of the FA Cup, which disputes this Saturday at Wembley against Watford, Pep Guardiola has reassured his former fans: “Do not worry about Barcelona, ​​we are not going to sign Griezmann. We can not afford it, “he declared.

Angers tried, but it barely disturbed Buffon after the first two attempts. Those of Tuchel, on the other hand, arrived with danger doing very little and, after the break, Di Maria would put land of by means with the second one. An arrival to the bottom line by the left of Dani Alves was headed to goal by the Argentine after putting the exazulgrana a measured center.

The expulsion of Marquinhos with a red card five minutes before the end of the game for knocking down a rival in the area made Spicy last minute, after Tait scored the goal of the honor by taking advantage of Buffon’s rejection, which stopped the penalty maximum.
