After Kylian Mbappe renewed his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar’s future is in doubt, with the club seeking to release the 30-year-old, particularly after a turbulent 2021-22 campaign.
Neymar arrived in Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 with high expectations including helping them win the Champions League, but this has never happened with the most of his time in the club has been plagued by a number of injuries.
That did not please Paris Saint-Germain fans, until they started to show their displeasure by giving him boos last year, with Lionel Messi following their European collapse.
Neymar is under contract until 2025, with that deal set to auto-extend until 2027 this month. It would be very helpful for Paris Saint-Germain if they could sell him before then – and the sooner the better.
