When Paris Saint-Germain signed Kylian Mbappe to a new contract extension deal, there was much speculation that it would turn out to be a relatively quiet summer transfer window for the club. However, this has not been the case as of late due to the growing speculation surrounding Neymar’s club future.
Neymar has been linked with a move away from PSG, and from Santos president Andres Rueda’s standpoint, he would much welcome the Brazilian international back to his club.
“I often talk to Neymar’s father, we exchange ideas and it is part of our daily routine,” Rueda said.
“With this opportunity and what happens with him at PSG, Santos will always leave the doors open and dream. … When he left, he said he would go and come back. We talked, we know it is difficult and a dream, but we have the no. We are talking, we will talk and it is a dream. My obligation is to at least try.”
Neymar is still under contract at PSG for several more years, so Santos may have to wait until the forward’s latter years of his career to make a push to bring him back to the club.
For now, much attention is set on just where Neymar will play club football at next season.
