La Liga: Neymar Reportedly Recruiting Real Madrid Star to Leave Nike for Puma

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr. could be turning into a recruiter for Puma. The 30-year-old left Nike in 2021 after he refused to cooperate with an investigation into sexual assault allegations against him.

Afterward, the Brazilian signed with Puma, and now he’s ready to attract the next generation of players to the sportswear manufacturer. Spanish media outlet Relevo reported on Saturday that the PSG star wants Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr. at Puma.

Neymar is being decisive in the process of convincing him. Additionally, the veteran has swooped in because the Real Madrid player told him about his frustration with Nike.

During the World Cup, Vini Jr. expressed to Neymar that the company chose other teammates for some publicity actions. As a result, his Brazil national team teammate might see this as an opening to bring him to Puma.

Vini Jr. is under contract with Nike until 2028 and has been with the company since he was 13. However, in December, the 22-year-old reportedly hired lawyers to help him get out of the deal. If he can get out, Neymar and Puma could be waiting with open arms.
