Paris Saint-Germain 'open to selling Neymar this summer'

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly open to selling Neymar for the right price, but the 30-year-old's wage demands could scupper a potential exit.

Paris Saint-Germain are willing to entertain suitable offers for Neymar this summer, according to a report.

The 30-year-old's long-term future has been called into question over the past couple of years, and a sensational return to Barcelona was briefly mooted.

However, La Blaugrana's long-running financial problems would have made a deal unfeasible, and Neymar's contract at the Parc des Princes still has another three years left to run.

The Brazil international endured a tumultuous 2021-22 campaign, though, as he missed a large chunk of the season through injury and was also the subject of boos from his own supporters.

According to Goal, PSG no longer view Neymar as an indispensable asset, and the Ligue 1 champions are open to parting ways with the former Barcelona man in the coming weeks.

The report adds that PSG chiefs have been left less than impressed with Neymar's recent performances and off-field attitude, and Kylian Mbappe having a say in transfers with his mammoth new deal could also spell danger for the South American.

Mbappe and Neymar's relationship is said to have 'cooled' over the past couple of years, but the latter has no intention of leaving the club right before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Furthermore, Neymar's extortionate wage demands could also scupper his chances of a move elsewhere, as only Newcastle United would be able to meet his financial expectations.

The ex-Santos starlet supposedly has no interest in heading to St James' Park, though, so everything seemingly points towards him remaining at the club for the next 12 months at least.

Neymar only made 28 appearances in all tournaments last term amid his fitness woes, but he still managed 13 goals and eight assists in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

The world's most expensive player now has a century of strikes and 60 assists to boast from 144 games in a PSG shirt since his world-record £199.8m move from Barcelona five years ago.

Neymar has also won four Ligue 1 titles, three Coupe de France crowns, two Coupe de la Ligue titles and three Trophee des Champions honours in Paris, where there could still be an attacking shake-up.

Despite recently shooting down reports of a move away, out-of-favour striker Mauro Icardi is still being linked with an exit and has supposedly been offered to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

PSG are thought to be one of the clubs interested in wantaway Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski, while Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali recently revealed that he has held talks with Les Parisiens over Gianluca Scamacca.

On the touchline, Mauricio Pochettino's departure from PSG should be made official soon, and Nice manager Christophe Galtier is primed to take over from next season.
