PSG wants to sell Neymar but is a prisoner of its politics

The Brazilian does not want to leave and in any case it is difficult to find buyers for a player who is paid 222 million euros and who earns 50 million gross a year.

“We want more young Frenchmen, players who are proud of this shirt and a team that focuses more on the collective”: these words by Nasser Al-Khelaifi were enough to spark rumors in France about a possible sale of Neymar by the Paris Saint Germain. In reality, rumors have been chasing each other for several weeks about a departure of the Brazilian who, not surprisingly, at the end of May had made things clear by declaring publicly that he wanted to stay in Paris.

Upon specific question, the PSG president made a dribbling worthy of O ‘Ney (“Some players will arrive, others will leave but I can’t talk about these things with the media “) but, even if he wanted to give up on the 30-year-old, he would face a perhaps more difficult path than the one that led to the renewal of MbappĂ© just when he was one step away from saying yes to Real Madrid.

Because the PSG looks like “Prisoner” of its own politics, that of the overpaid stars who are then difficult to give up. Over the years it has already happened, with numbers – both in terms of price tag and salary – obviously very different, with the various Icardi, Paredes, Draxler and Kurzawa. The reality is that in Europe no one would invest 80-100 million euros and above all it would guarantee a salary of 49 million euros gross a year to Neymar, returning from a subdued season among other things. And the 1992 class is still too young to end up in MLS or Qatar.

A concept well expressed by Joan Laporta who not too long ago said: “Who doesn’t like Neymar? He is an exceptional player but when these players sign for PSG it is how they signed their imprisonment. To come to Barcelona they should arrive on a free transfer because we cannot afford certain costs. And even if we had the money to carry out these operations, it would be irrational to carry them out. “
