REPORTS: PSG wants to sell both Messi and Neymar

Both Neymar and Lionel Messi might leave PSG this summer. The Ligue 1 winners are reportedly willing to transfer Neymar if a good deal comes in, but Neymar may not be the only player to leave the Parc des Princes this summer.

The new sporting leadership of the French team, which comprises Luis Campos and Antero Henrique, could sell Lionel Messi as well, according to Spanish journalist Pedro Morata (via PSG Talk).

The Argentine has one more year left on his deal after joining PSG on a free transfer last year following his shocking departure from Barcelona.

It appears that the plan is to create a new team around Kylian Mbappe that will be less reliant on star players and more competitive.

The 23-year-old turned down a serious interest from Real Madrid by agreeing to a new, lucrative contract with the Parisians in May. A youthful Vitinha from Porto has just joined PSG.

According to Morata, the main obstacle to selling Messi and Neymar is their exorbitant salaries, which are unaffordable for many clubs.

According to French outlet L’Equipe, Messi earns €3.375 million per month, but Neymar earns €4.083 million, making him the team’s biggest earner (via Daily Mirror).

Because of this, there isn’t much of a market for them, but the Spanish journalist claims that both players are prepared to quit. Recently, Neymar has been associated with Chelsea, and Messi has been mentioned as a potential future transfer target for Inter Miami.

Neymar is more likely to leave the Ligue 1 champions than Lionel Messi, who is unlikely to leave PSG this year.

Since the Parisians are willing to consider bids for the Brazilian star before selling him at the proper price, Neymar has been closely associated with a departure. However, Lionel Messi is unlikely to relocate this summer as there haven’t been many stories speculating about a move.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will stay at the club for at least another year, according to a recent report from Sky Sports.

His contract is up in June 2023, at which point Messi, who will be 36, may look for a new job, possibly with his old club Newell’s Old Boys in his native Argentina.

Unless there is a strong lead, it’s best to take matters like this with a grain of salt because not all of the Spanish media’s claims about PSG may be credible.
