Over the last few weeks, there have been rumors about Neymar Jr. possibly exiting, with reports linking the Brazilian to a move to the Premier League or even Saudi Arabia.
With Luis Enrique possibly coming to take over the managerial role at Paris Saint-Germain, the Spanish manager would reunite with Neymar, whom he won the UEFA Champions League with during the 2014-2015 season.
L’Equipe reported on Sunday that Enrique would like his say on the recruitment this summer. Additionally, it’s not sure that he will validate a departure from Neymar, who is under contract until 2025.

If there’s a manager that can get the best out of Neymar at this stage in his career, it’s likely the 53-year-old. Furthermore, Enrique reportedly sees himself in Paris building a long-term project and not coming for a short stay.
As a result, the former FC Barcelona boss sees areas on the team he wants to upgrade, specifically the midfield. The Spaniard has always favored great control in midfield, and the current team does not yet satisfy his provisions.
