According to ESPN, the player of the Brazilian national team and PSG, Neymar Junior, will not have to leave the ranks of the Parisians. So, Neymar stays in PSG.
Although the South American star wants to play in Barcelona, “Blaugrana” will not be able to buy him.
Neymar and Martinez were considered the priority options for Blaugrana. It was even assumed that the Catalans would buy both players.
The situation has changed dramatically. The reason, of course, is a coronavirus, which is why clubs have a financial crisis. The situation is even worse at Camp Nou. Six members of the board of directors have decided to leave Barcelona.
The source claims that his salary will be halved. And, he will have to agree to it without complaining. All members of the Park de France will have to pay a certain percentage of the compensation.
Neymar earns 31.6 million euros a year at the current club. His transfer fee is 128 million, and he has a contract with PSG until the summer of 2022.
Barcelona have selected an alternative to Neymar and Lautaro.
As Barcelona is no longer able to afford the mega-transfers, they’ve started to look for an alternative target.
Sport.es reports that Barcelona is showing interest in Bayern’s winger Kingsley Coman. Barca are considering the 23-year-old Frenchman as an alternative to PSG forward Neymar and Inter striker Lautaro Martinez.
This season, Coman has played 24 matches in all competitions, scoring 5 goals and making 5 assists. Kingsley’s current contract with Bayern expires in the summer of 2023.
