Paris Saint-Germain is facing quite a dilemma regarding Neymar’s future at the club. The Brazilian forward still has four years left on his contract at PSG, and he is reportedly earning an astounding €56.36 million (gross) per season on his deal.
PSG is reportedly open to offloading Neymar in the upcoming summer transfer window, as the club is “ready to make concessions” in order to part ways with him.
PSG is also dealing with another dilemma over just who will be the team’s manager for next season. Christophe Galtier is under contract with PSG for the 2023-2024 season, as he signed off on a two-year deal with the club last July. However, PSG football advisor Luis Campos is reportedly open to the possibility of bringing in AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho to replace Galtier.
If Mourinho does indeed become PSG’s next manager, then the longtime Portuguese coach would like to see the club keep Neymar, according to a report from the Spanish-based outlet Sport (via Le10Sport). Mourinho has not managed Neymar before, and he has also not had the opportunity to game plan against him.
Mourinho downplayed the links to PSG during a pre-match press conference ahead of AS Roma’s UEFA Europa League knockout stage fixture against Bayer Leverkusen, noting that the Ligue 1 powerhouse has not contacted him.
The two-time UEFA Champions League-winning manager has a mere one more season left on his contract at AS Roma.
