Mundo Deportivo reports that Neymar is considering leaving PSG for Premier League club Newcastle United. The French powerhouses want to get rid of the 31-year-old offensive target. He has caught the eye of Chelsea and Manchester United. However, a deal for the Brazilian is fraught with difficulties. Recent developments suggest that Neymar’s tenure at Paris Saint-Germain may soon come to an end. The 31-year-old has been involved in more controversy than is required since his arrival in Paris after a bizarre trade from Barcelona.
The club’s management has expressed frustration with his lifestyle choices, late-night gatherings, and general behaviour on several occasions. To further cement his future with PSG, Neymar exercised a contract provision that will keep him at the club until 2027. The club is considering benching the Brazilian because of this and his €40 million annual wage.
There have been suggestions that Neymar will be moving to Newcastle United in the Premier League
Luis Campos, the head of sports operations, agrees that the squad would be better off without Neymar and other stars. Premier League heavyweights Chelsea and Manchester United are among those interested in signing the 31-year-old offensive target.

Since last summer’s takeover, Chelsea has been in the spotlight. If the player can help boost the club’s profile, owner Todd Boehly would want to sign him. It is possible that they may have to pay a hefty transfer fee to get the services of the 31-year-old PSG star, despite having previously shown their financial strength by spending over €600 million in the past two windows combined.
Although he formerly looked up to the nation, it’s quite unlikely that the Magpies will sign him despite his admiration for them
Manchester United also has the resources to make a significant offer for Neymar. They just parted ways with another high-profile star, Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s unclear whether Erik ten Hag would be interested in a similar agreement. Despite rumours to the contrary, it seems unlikely that Neymar would return to Barcelona this summer, given the club’s financial woes. The 31-year-old great is now being linked to Newcastle United, according to reports. The Magpies should maintain their current third-place standing and qualify for the Champions League next season. Neymar has been mentioned as a possible marquee signing target, although others have cast doubt on whether or not he fits that description.
Newcastle United would have to pay a hefty cost to PSG
According to the source, Neymar’s agents have been in communication with Newcastle United about a possible transfer to the Premier League. Although he formerly looked up to the nation, it’s quite unlikely that the Magpies will sign him despite his admiration for them. The Magpies, who are said to have financial backing from the Saudi PIF, can afford to recruit any player they choose. However, the team has taken a cautious approach so far. That won’t change for the next window.
Further, Newcastle United would have to pay a hefty cost to PSG. Neymar’s possible wage demands might torpedo any transaction. As a whole, they are just wild speculations that won’t amount to anything. The Magpies will continue to make moves in the future. However, they won’t go for a star like Neymar.
