In the previous days, the football market was shaken by Cristiano Ronaldo’s dissatisfaction with Manchester United and the limited possible options for the continuation of the Portuguese’s career as his earnings were an issue for many European teams.
And now another transfer soap opera is on the horizon due to a disgruntled star. Some things in Paris Saint-Germain are not to Neymar’s liking and the option of him leaving the City of Light is open. And it seems that even in the club from the Park of the Princes, they would have nothing against getting rid of the Brazilian representative.
How much is Neymar jr market value?
According to figures from Transfermarkt, Neymar is worth 75 million euros. The Brazilian holds the transfer record fee of €222 million euros following his move to Paris Saint-Germain.
It seems that in Paris, they are slowly raising their hands from Neymar and the project in which he was supposed to be the leader who will take the Saints to the much-desired roof of Europe. Five years have already passed, and in those five seasons, PSG was eliminated three times in the round of 16 of the Champions League. They had another final and two semi-finals in which the Brazilian did not provide what he was brought in for. In those three semi-final and final matches, he had neither a goal nor an assist.
In five seasons, Neymar played in 144 games and scored 100 goals. It’s not a bad goal-scoring performance, but the problem is that he was often absent in the most important matches and that he scored 70 percent of the goals in the French championship, which PSG has been struggling through for years. And when the number of games played is divided by the number of seasons, it comes to the figure that he played less than 30 matches per season.
The main problem with the transfer is finances. The Brazilian costs almost 50,000,000 euros per season and has a contract for four more years. They also know in the French club that Neymar cannot get those conditions anywhere in the world, except maybe in Newcastle, but the Brazilian doesn’t even think about living in the north of England. Even the player knows it. But there are still some options…
Manchester United could finance his arrival now that C. Ronaldo left. Chelsea also has money for Neymar if new boss Todd Boehly decides to usher in a new era with the transfer of a big star. There is also Newcastle. A return to Barcelona is not realistic due to the financial crisis of the Catalan club.
The French newspaper “l’equipe” published the news that PSG is in an unenviable position because, on July 1, 2022, the clause was activated that extended Neymar’s contract for another year and will be valid until June 2027!
Neymar’s performances in the last few years have been hindered by constant injuries, however, when he is fit and playing, few can match the Brazilian’s quality and magic on the pitch. Even though he isn’t quite the same player he was earlier, especially in Barcelona, Neymar is still a great danger to opponent defenders and goalkeepers. His current value in the transfer market stands at an estimated 75 million euros. His biggest market value was 180 million euros when he joined PSG from Barcelona in the most expensive transfer in the world at that time. He is 30 years old but unlike C. Ronaldo or Messi, Neymar is most of the time injured and many think that it is so because he doesn’t really lead a healthy life and he often can be seen in nightclubs and at parties.
