Man City is reportedly planning to bring in one of the “top strikers” to Etihad Stadium with a huge amount of money.
PSG is facing a revolution this summer as the superstar attacking trio of Neymar-Mbappe-Messi is likely to break up.
Kylian Mbappe will certainly remain the core of Parc des Princes next season, while El Pulga is still the name that the club’s management board strongly suggests a new contract for.
However, things seem bleak for Neymar as Les Parisiens actually intends to “get rid of” the Brazilian superstar. Recently, City Extra shared that Manchester City has planned to sign the 31-year-old striker away from Paris.
With Neymar transfer fee of €222M, he is currently the most expensive player in football transfer history.
It is known that 70-80 million pounds will be the figure that Etihad Stadium’s team offers for this deal. However, the estimated amount that Citizens will have to spend is even more because Neymar’s salary and bonus will certainly not be below £500,000 per week.
As for PSG, of course, they have no hesitation in selling the player who has made them “fed up” for many seasons. Recently, the club’s chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, himself met directly with Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly, to offer the Brazilian superstar for sale.
However, The Blues don’t seem too interested in this deal as they have spent up to £600 million in the last two transfer windows.
Meanwhile, Man City is very excited about it. Etihad Stadium is currently lacking quality wing forwards as Riyad Mahrez is on the decline of his career, and Jack Grealish alone is not enough.
Therefore, Pep Guardiola also agrees with bringing Neymar to Man City. So Neymar is also one of the Man City transfer targets in 2023. From there, Erling Haaland will have another quality partner in the attack.
Overall, Neymar still wants to stay at PSG. However, if the club is really determined to sell him, the Selecao striker will certainly not need to hold on.
And if he chooses to join Man City, the former Barcelona star will undoubtedly be a formidable name in the Premier League next season.
