Paris Saint-Germain refuses to negotiate with Barcelona about a possible return of Neymar, with contractual cases and the Corona virus crisis meaning that other issues are given priority.
To avoid a recurrence, it is likely that Neymar will return to Barcelona at some point. You’ll be hearing about them for longer than you actually have, only the latest developments mean you’ll hear about them until longer now.
Naturally, the coronavirus crisis has brought with it a new, unprecedented global climate, in which all walks of life have been disrupted in some way. Football is no different, and even some of the wealthiest clubs in the world, such as Paris Saint-Germain, are feeling the effects.
sports Reported that the Ligue 1 champions give up talking about a La Liga back to Neymar to focus instead on the range of problems they face. Contracts for up to 11 players are at the forefront of their issues, and closing these deals takes center stage. Contracts across the sport are at risk, with the legal ramifications of stopping football creating serious uncertainty.
Furthermore, the club’s other focus is to finish the current season whenever it resumes. Thomas Tuchel’s team managed to overturn their deficit in the first leg against Borussia Dortmund to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and there is confidence within the Paris Saint-Germain camp that they can enjoy a productive run in the tournament.
Interestingly, Barcelona They see the current economic situation as a reward in their pursuit of Neymar. Player swaps or player-plus-cash deals could become a more regular occurrence, and that is exactly the avenue Barca intend to operate.
With the transfer window opening later than the original summer date, that would shave a number of months off Neymar’s remaining contract with PSG – which is due to expire in the summer of 2022. That, in turn, would reduce the value of the French. The side could lay on its head, opening the door to smoother negotiation on the Blaugrana side and a financially less complex process.
When the crisis has settled, the report adds, the two sides will “calmly” resume talks, although Barcelona feel they are making progress there is still a lot of work to do. Unfortunately.
