Neymar aims for resurgence in Paris.
France’s Foot Mercato reported on Tuesday (June 20), “Neymar has laid out his plans for the future after being pushed out by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). He never lived up to fans’ expectations. Neymar has been criticized by Kylian Mbappe for his behavior, not to mention his frequent injuries. Nevertheless, he wants to continue playing for PSG, where his contract is automatically extended until 2027.”
According to the outlet, Neymar said, “I hope to play for PSG (next season) as well. I have a contract with the club and no one has said anything to me so far. Even if I am not loved by the fans and the players, I will be there,” he said, confirming his intention to stay.
He also mentioned the ‘MNM line’. “Galacticos didn’t win the UEFA Champions League (UCL),” Neymar said. We had a very strong team. Myself, Mbappe, and Lionel Messi are the best trio in the world, but we were not good. We wanted to win every game, but sometimes soccer isn’t fair,” he said of his disappointment.
He also spoke candidly about his intentions for the new season. “I’m tired, I’m really uncomfortable. Obviously, the goal is always to win, but I want to play well again, that’s my first goal,” he said, showing his determination to restore his tattered pride.
PSG was acquired by Qatar Sports Invest (QSI) in 2011. The club invested heavily in order to compete with Lyon and Marseille. Thiago Silva, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and others were bought with oil money. 메이저놀이터
The best of the bunch is the ‘MNM line’. In 2017, Neymar broke the world record when he left Barcelona for €220 million ($316.1 billion). Mbappe left AS Monaco for €180 million. Messi joined the Parc des Princes as a free agent after being released by financially troubled Barcelona.
The goal was clear. Win the UEFA Champions League (UCL), soccer’s most prestigious competition. PSG was going to do it with their “MNM line” of Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar. A lot of expectations were centered on this in-game combination.
However, all their hard work was for naught. PSG reached the UCL final in the 2019-20 season, but finished as runners-up to Bayern Munich. It seemed like a promising start, but it was all downhill from there. They were knocked out in the round of 16 for the second consecutive season, falling to Real Madrid in 2021-22 (2-3 on aggregate) and Munich in 2022-23 (0-3 on aggregate).
