Neymar demands £1m a week
Neymar & Real Madrid
PSG and Brazil star Neymar is currently out of action working on his recovery.
Neymar’s PSG season is all-but certain to be over following an operation on the striker’s fifth metatarsal.
The world’s most expensive footballer is expected to be fit and healthy for the World Cup in Russia in around 90 days time.
But has Neymar played his final match for PSG already?
After joining from Barcelona last summer, rumours have been floating about for weeks that Real Madrid could sign the forward this off-season.
‘Neymar demands £1m-a-week pay hike from PSG’
According to Duncan Castles in the Sunday Times, Neymar is now making new demands to stay at PSG.
And those demands are not that PSG get a world class manager, or new world class players to boost the team.
No, it’s apparently an extra £1m-a-week pay hike on top of his already enormous salary to remain in the French capital.
The player’s father is understood to have proposed that PSG improve his son’s financial terms amid Real Madrid’s efforts to bring him back to Spain.
The European champions have been courting Neymar for several months, with their president Florentino Perez using December’s Ballon d’Or award ceremony to pitch for his services.
Neymar agreed a five year contract when he joined PSG, so can he really expect to hold the club to ransom after less than 12 months?
The Sunday Times confirm that PSG are refusing to think about selling Neymar anytime soon.
