PSG experienced ‘unexpected’ consequences from Lionel Messi after expelling Neymar

Foot Mercato reveɑled the French capital club ran out of patience with Neymar. They consider it necessary to let the 31-year-old striker leave in the summer transfer window this year. PSG need to reduce the salary fund as well as stabilize the dressing room.

This choice is being made as Neymar is the subject of controversy with PSG just before the Champions League. The PSG team also thinks Kylian Mbappe, who is also said to be at odds with Neymar, will feel more at ease without the 31-year-old player present.

PSG’s internal turmoil following their weekend Ligue 1 loss to AS Monaco, which ended 1-3. Hugo Ekitike was reprimanded by Neymar, according to L’Equipe, for handling broken balls throughout the game. The former Barca star reportedly got into a disagreement with PSG Sports Director Luis Campos. Neymar responded to Campos’ criticism of the PSG player during the team’s loss to Monaco, which sparked a confrontation between the two parties.

Neymar caused serious turmoil inside PSG after returning from the World Cup.

Le Parisien claims that PSG may have serious problems with Messi due of Neymar’s situation. Particularly, the Argentine superstar’s contract is only valid through the end of the current season. El Pulga can put an end to this right away thanks to Neymar, even though it is now negotiating to stay at the Park of the Princes.

As a result, Messi and Neymar have been close friends for a very long time, from Barcelona to PSG. These two are the team’s leaders among the Latin-speaking players, who are rumored to be constantly prepared to challenge Kylian Mbappe and the French-speakers for the title of current Ligue 1 champion.

Messi’s “green light” with PSG on a new contract is said to be because the Argentine superstar wants to continue playing with Neymar

Sources close to the Paris team said that M10 would not want to continue playing for PSG if his trusted “junior” was sold. And this makes it even more difficult for PSG to make their choices.

It is known that at present Les Parisiens’ No. 1 goal is to calm the tense relationship between the players and the management team to focus on the match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. At the same time, the contract extension of Lionel Messi is still one of the extremely important “highlights” that PSG need to do.

Messi’s future will most likely depend on Neymar’s future

Over the past year, there have been numerous changes made to Neymar’s future at PSG. The Paris team was prepared to let Neymar leave during the summer 2022 transfer window as of April of last year. PSG, however, was unable to locate a team at the time who was interested in signing the Brazilian striker.

Neymar had a strong first half of the 2022–23 season and was well-liked by PSG management. The 1992-born player became the center of numerous problems after PSG dropped two straight games against Marseille and Monaco in the previous week.

Neymar no longer maintains the impressive form at the beginning of the season

It is not easy for PSG to find a partner who wants to buy Neymar in this summer market. Neymar’s high salary (about 40m euros/season) is a big barrier for every team. In 2021, the Brazilian striker was raised by PSG in a new contract with a term until 2025.

In addition to Neymar, PSG also seeks to liquidɑte many other players in the near future to reduce salary pressure. Statistics from Sportune show that PSG’s salary fund last season reached 728m euros, the highest in world football. The team with the second highest salary fund, Real Madrid, also spent only 519m euros to pay the salaries of the players.
