PSG have offered Neymar to Manchester City, offer included an exchange with another player, the cityzens declined the offer

According to Le Parisien, PSG reached out Manchester City in recent weeks to offer to get Neymar back in the form of a player swap. But the English club quickly rejected this proposal.

Will Neymar play for PSG this season? Difficult to say at the start of the summer. Even if the Brazilian dribbler seems to want to stay in Paris, his leaders would like to part with him. Christophe Galtier has repeatedly said that he was counting on his No. 10, but the Qatari owners would like to find a way out for him, five years after his arrival in Paris.

According to Le Parisien, the French champions have approached Manchester City in recent weeks to offer them the Seleçao striker (30) in the form of a player swap. The Ile-de-France daily does not specify the identity of the player targeted at City but wonders if it would not be Bernardo Silva.

A huge salary and a contract until 2027

Anyway, the cityzens were quick to push back against this original proposal. Pep Guardiola would not want to disturb the balance of his team by adding a star of the caliber of Neymar. Despite the rumors surrounding his future, the former Barça crack, recruited for 222 million euros in the summer of 2017, would not intend to pack his bags.

His entourage blows that he is “determined” to achieve a great season in the red and blue jersey. He also appears very relaxed since the start of the pre-season tour, which is currently taking place in Japan. Anyway, no club today seems able to offer him the same salary as PSG (more than 30 million euros net per season), knowing that his contract was recently extended automatically until June 2027. According to the Transfermartk site, his market rating is estimated at 75 million euros.
