Neymar Jr. is one of the most common topics in the football world in recent days, as the Brazilian superstar has been in everybody's mouth for his displays inside and outside the pitch. Even though he’s not listed as transferrable by his team Paris Saint-Germain, the Ligue 1 champions might be facing a potential departure from the forward.
When he made his move to the French capital from Barcelona a couple of years ago, everything was believed to be good for the highest-paid transfer in the world, but two seasons after the former Santos player took his talents to Parc des Prince, his exit might be closer than we think.
Neymar is about to lose his 'greatest supporter', PSG sporting director Antero Henrique, who played a major role in bringing him to the club, while Henrique's exit would also start a 'significant' clear out of the playing squad.
French publication Telefoot, via AS, claim that with Henrique leaving and Leonardo returning to the club he left six years ago, the Brazilian would have 'added motive' to leave Paris, with Real Madrid and Barcelona continuing to be linked with a move for the 27-year-old.
When the now former Milan sporting director returns to Paris, his biggest task will probably be persuading Neymar to stay in Paris. This is thought to be a difficult job to carry out, though, with the pair having barely met or spoken before.
The report indicates that Neymar has been thinking about his future with PSG for the past few weeks as he believes his expectations weren’t fulfilled during these years. He has stated that he’s not interested in joining Madrid in the near future, but now with his future in the air, Ney would think twice before shutting any door this offseason.
