Neymar open to ‘dream’ PSG move – agent

PSG move 'could be a dream' for Neymar

PSG move ‘could be a dream’ for Neymar

PARIS, April 4 – Brazilian superstar Neymar could join Paris Saint Germain, if the French giants pay his huge Sh22.3 billion  ($220 million) get out clause, his agent said Monday.

“Neymar has a contract with Barca until 2018,” Wayne Ribeiro told French sports daily L’Equipe.

“But the prospect of living in a city like Paris, and to play for a club like PSG is also a dream for every player.

“That’s to say if PSG showed interest in Neymar we could talk about it.”

PSG have dominated Ligue 1 since the Qatari takeover of the French capital club in 2011.

Laurent Blanc’s men wrapped up their fourth successive league title in record time in March, and face Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

And with talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, courted by some of Europe’s top clubs, in possibly his last season in France, PSG have reportedly identified Neymar as their number one target before the new season starts in August.

Ribeiro added: “A contract can also be dissolved on condition of paying the release clause. It’s huge – 193 million euros.

“But I don’t think that would be an insurmountable problem for PSG.”

Ribeiro’s comments caused a stir in Spain, with Barcelona defender Gerard Pique suggesting he could never envisage Neymar leaving the European champions.

“Neymar’s not going to leave Barca, I’m certain of that, I know him and I know he won’t be leaving,” the Spanish international told a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg with Atletico Madrid.

“We’re at Barca, nobody wants to leave here! People are thrilled to be at the club, it’s total good fortune to play for this side, in this city, with these fans.

“We have everything, what more could you want? I’m convinced that all the players will stay.”
