Neymar’s reputation, once regarded as the successor to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and called ‘the next god of football’, is falling. He conveyed his intention to transfer to Manchester United, but it seems to be canceled, and there is even talk of advancing to Saudi Arabia. In this situation, reports came out that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had made a call to sign Neymar.
Neymar has been evaluated as a ‘superstar’ following Lionel Messi. Barcelona was at its peak. From 2013 to 2017, he built the ‘MSN Line’ with Messi and Luis Suarez and commanded Europe. He left a monstrous record of 105 goals and 76 assists in 186 games in four seasons, and lifted countless trophies such as the league, Copa del Rey, UEFA Champions League (UCL).메이저사이트
After that, he went to PSG. It was truly the ‘transfer of the century’ with a transfer fee alone of nearly 300 billion won. PSG later recruited Kylian Mbappe and aimed for his long-awaited big ear, centered on two ‘one-two punches’.
However, PSG did not realize the dream. Neymar wasn’t bad. He has appeared in 173 career games so far, scoring 118 goals and 77 assists, and the surface record is good. However, he missed every important moment due to injury and did not help the team much in the long run. Every season when he failed in his UCL challenge, fans found a place to vent their anger and Neymar became a target.
It was the same this season. PSG fans’ anger exploded amidst the chaotic atmosphere, including Messi’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia and the club’s two-week ban following this. The British media’Guardian’ said, “PSG fans shouted in front of Neymar’s house to leave. The club condemned this action. While fans demanded the resignation of the board in front of the club’s office, the arrow of criticism was also directed at Neymar.” .
In this situation, rumors of a transfer to Manchester United were raised. But the news that they were negotiating was not true. Global sports media ‘ESPN’ senior reporter Marc Ogden drew the line, saying, “Man Utd is not pushing for Neymar.”
Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ also said, “Man Utd is one of several clubs that have received offers for Neymar this summer. Neymar’s future at PSG is uncertain, and the club is ready to listen to him. “We have received an offer from a broker to sign Neymar from PSG. A deal could make sense from a commercial point of view, but it is not currently a goal for United.”
In this situation, the name of Manchester City appeared. England’s ‘The Sun’ said, “Guardiola wanted to know exactly what Neymar was thinking ahead of the transfer window. I called to speak with Neymar.”
