By Yongjae Choi] English Premier League (EPL) side Manchester City appear to have entered the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) ‘superstar’ Neymar.
Neymar’s future at PSG is currently unclear. With Lionel Messi’s departure a certainty, PSG are looking to rebuild their squad around Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar has been linked with a move away. Neymar’s lack of affection for PSG has increased the likelihood of a split.
The EPL teams are on the offensive. 메이저놀이터 Manchester United, who are looking to make a real leap forward next season, have expressed interest in signing Neymar, while Newcastle, backed by Middle Eastern oil money, also want him.
This is where City comes in. City are the best team in the world. They’ve won the EPL, won three straight titles, and are in the FA Cup final and UEFA Champions League final. They’re favored to win the treble.
Add Neymar to the mix, and you’ve got a team that is truly a force to be reckoned with. With Elling Holland and Kevin De Bruyne, Neymar can be the focal point of the offense. It’s one of the most powerful combinations on the planet. It”s very possible that next season will be the same for City.
The reason why Neymar is rumored to be moving to City is because City manager Pep Guardiola called him directly.
France’s ‘L’Equipe’ reported, “Pep Guardiola called Neymar directly to discuss his possible transfer from PSG. He wanted to know the exact intentions of Neymar, including his current transfer situation and willingness to leave,” the French publication reported.
There are many teams that would love to sign Neymar, but there’s a reason why they can’t. It’s his high salary. Neymar is one of the highest-paid players in the world, earning more than £600,000 ($980 million) a week. That’s a lot of money for most clubs.
But with the power of oil money, City can afford it. City’s arrival could be a game-changer for Neymar.
