The elimination of PSG in the semi-finals of the Champions League raises the question of its future. At least seen from Spain.
The PSG is on the mat. After brilliantly eliminating the Barça then the Bayern Munich, the capital club stalled in the face of Manchester city in the semi-finals. With the key two inevitably frustrating defeats for the champions of France. The speeches made by the Parisian players at the end of the meeting might well be resolutely positive, the Red and Blue inevitably accused the blow. Because the observation of failure was obvious, in particular for Neymar, who is off for a new disillusionment in Paris. The one too many?
It is in any case the conviction of the Spanish press, which did not delay to relaunch the Neymar soap opera. Seen from Spain, there is indeed little doubt that the Brazilian is determined to return to Barça. And this despite his reassuring comments made for several weeks about its extension. ” Everything is almost settled. You know, we are in discussion with Paris… We are not in a hurry. I’m feeling good. I feel really very happy here at PSGHe said again last week. But to believe Mundo Deportivo, it would only be a facade speech.
A meeting scheduled for the next few days
Neymar has also already contacted the leaders of Barcelona to inform them of his desire to return to Catalonia, four years after his thunderous departure for PSG. And this desire would be shared since Juan Laporta, returned to the presidency of the club this winter, would have made the Brazilian one of the priorities of the summer recruitment of the Blaugrana. According to Vanguardia, his return to Catalonia would have even already been budgeted since the vice-champions of Spain estimate, given the crisis and his contractual situation, that a sum of between 60 and 100 million euros should be sufficient. to do business with PSG.
The elimination of Parisians from the Champions League should allow Barcelona to speed things up. A meeting would be scheduled in the coming days between representatives of the Barcelona club and the Brazilian’s entourage. Because despite the goodwill displayed on both sides, the question of his salary arises, the Blaugrana seeming unable to match the 30 million euros received by the native of Santos in Paris.
