PSG ready to sell Neymar with Juventus a possible destination

PSG ready to sell Neymar with Juventus a possible destination


Paris Saint-Germain have decided to part ways with world-record signing Neymar, according to reports coming out of France on Wednesday.

The Brazilian could find himself moving from Paris to Turin, too, with Juventus thought to be high on the list of possible destinations for the forward should he depart the Parc des Princes this summer.

As per French outlet Foot Mercato, new PSG director Luis Campos and soon-to-be coach Christophe Galtier have drawn up a list of those deemed surplus to requirements, and the 30-year-old winger heads that set of players.

With Angel Di Maria having already left the club this summer as a result of his contract expiring, letting Neymar leave too would represent a major commitment to changing the style of football in the French capital, with a view to increased success in the Champions League.

Juventus bound?

According to reports in Italy, Juventus are one of the potential destinations for the Brazilian superstar, who, if he leaves, will be keen to remain competing for both domestic and European titles.

The Old Lady could offer him that, despite not having won the Serie A title for 2 years running, and Neymar could view it as just the challenge required to rebuild his reputation as one of the world’s best players after finding himself out of the spotlight in Paris this season.

One major stumbling block for most sides, however, will be his astronomical wages, which PSG would surely have to subsidise in order to make any move happen.
