While he was tracked by Chelsea at the end of the transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain would have tried to send Neymar to another Premier League club, Manchester City.
At the end of the transfer window, Neymar’s future at Paris Saint-Germain was once again called into question. Several English media indicated a possible departure of Neymar to Chelseabefore Sky Sports put an end to the rumours. After a complicated transfer market and looking for reinforcements, the Blues would still have tried their luck to secure the services of Neymar.
But PSG had spent 220 million euros to recruit him from FC Barcelona in 2017 and intended to recover a good part of this sum. Only an extraordinary offer could have dislodged the Brazilian, who has five years left on his contract in Paris.

PSG offered Neymar to Manchester City
On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain would have tried to refourguer his player. Indeed, according to information from brand, Neymar would have been proposed to Manchester City, but the Skyblues declined this proposal. The Spanish media indicates that his relationship with Kylian Mbappé would have pushed the Parisian leaders to try to find a way out for the Brazilian international.
The atmosphere between the two men would not be good in the Ile-de-France locker room, especially after the “penalty gate” episode. Even so, Neymar is currently making an excellent start to the season in Ligue 1. After five days, he has already scored 7 goals and 6 assists in the league. He seems determined to have a great season in Parisian colors and sent a strong message at the start of the summer: “ this season, all shots will come in, free kicks, headers… I feel good. I’m confident ! I trained a lot during my holidays. »
