It looks like the Neymar saga at Paris Saint-Germain is far from over, as the French champions keep rejecting huge bids for the Brazilian, even though they’ve claimed that they don’t want him to stay in the club any longer.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have gone back and forth to try and bring the out-of-favor star back to Spain, but no offer seems good enough for PSG regardless of how absurdly generous it may seem.
And now, according to French outlet L’Equipe, Real Madrid improved their latest bid for Neymar, offering Keylor Navas, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale plus €100 million to seal the deal. The French, however, gently declined said offer.
PSG’s officials have already rejected Barcelona’s loan offer for Neymar, even despite the fact that they had agreed to add a clause that would force them to buy him at the end of the season.
Real Madrid decided to step up on their pursuit for the Brazilian as it became clear that the Catalans don’t have enough money to make a run at him right away, and not even the more pessimistic executive thought the French club was going to be bold enough to reject their latest bid.
PSG are reportedly trying to get the huge investment they made on Neymar back and, according to their current market values, they would’ve gotten that and more by accepting that deal.
Neymar’s future at Parc des Princes is uncertain and the club’s supporters have even turned their back on him following his lack of commitment and off-court antics.
He’s eager to make a move out of the team but, truth to be told, it looks like PSG’s strategy of playing the long game isn’t going to pay off for them.
There’s nothing much any club in the world can offer for Neymar at this point, so if they truly want to let him go, they better start thinking things through.
