The Premier League trio are reportedly the only clubs that could possibly afford the Brazilian superstar

Following reports that Neymar is considering leaving PSG this summer, it is now being claimed that only three clubs stand a chance of signing him.

Due to his astronomical £600,000-per-week wage packet in the French capital, it is believed that Premier League trio Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United are the only teams that can feasibly fund the transfer. Juventus have also been mooted as a possible option for the wantaway striker but a move would be too pricey for the Serie A giants. 

Further reports claim that PSG have to move Neymar on before Friday or risk his contract being automatically extended until 2027.


The 30-year-old is said to have been left unhappy following comments from club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi earlier this week. Al-Khelafi blasted his players following a season that saw PSG clinch the Ligue 1 title, but also crash out of the Champions League in the round of 16 at the hands of eventual winners Real Madrid. 

Speaking to Le Parisien, Al-Khelaifi said: "I expected all of the players to do more than last season. Much more!

"The message is clear: working each day at 200 per cent. To give everything we have for this shirt, to give it our all, and then we’ll see what the result is.

"We have to become humble again. We have to change to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls which can change games.

"We’ll stop saying that we want to win this, this and that. We’re building.

"We have to discipline ourselves, both on and off the pitch. […] Those who want to stay in their comfort zone will stay to one side."

Asked specifically about Neymar by Marca, he said: "Some will come and others will go, but these are private negotiations."
