Page L’Equipe (France) confirmed that it is not PSG, Man City is a name capable of making the dream of reuniting Messi and Neymar into reality.
Recently, L’Equipe (France) page has just drawn a prospect that makes football fans fall back: Neymar will reunite Lionel Messi in Man City shirt.
The roots began after the match between MU and PSG in the Champions League group stage, when Neymar suddenly expressed his desire to work with Messi next season. The statement of sub Pele also means, either Neymar bid farewell to PSG to return to Barca, or Messi left the Nou Camp to join the Ligue I. champions.
According to L’Equipe, the scenario of Barca recruiting Neymar is more difficult because “the giants of Catalunya” are in financial trouble. On the other hand, it is unlikely that the team will continue to stick with Messi when there is only 1 year of contract left.
The 33-year-old superstar can freely find a new stop from January, even to avoid losing anything, Barca is ready to sell him to a partner who pays 55 million euros (£ 50 million). Recently, Interim Chairman Carles Tusquets also admitted that he would sell Messi last summer if possible.
The remaining scenario, PSG pleased Neymar and spent money to recruit Messi. However, according to L’Equipe, the leadership of the French team is extremely headache because of a loss of 100 million euros in the 2019/20 season, not to mention preparing to lose another 150 million euros this season.
The Financial Fairness Act (FFP) stipulates that teams are not allowed to lose more than 30 million euros in 3 years. PSG is forced to sell many stars such as Mbappe and Di Maria if he really wants to recruit Messi and “carries” the estimated salary of 80 million euros of M10 in total.
Therefore, L’Equipe affirmed that Man City, a team possessing financial strength equal to PSG, is a name capable of making the Neymar – Messi reunion dream come true.
The leading French newspaper site believes that Man City owners are willing to defy all obstacles in money and the Financial Justice law. The former King of the Premier League won a spectacular victory in a July Financial Fairness lawsuit, only fined 10 million euros instead of a two-year European Cup ban.
Man City almost successfully recruited Messi in the summer transfer period of 2020 if the Argentine superstar did not decide to stay in Barca at the last minute. With the presence of coach Pep Guardiola, “half-green to Manchester” is of course still the most ideal stop for M10.
Now, owning Neymar is no different from explosion, bringing the reputation of Man City and the Premier League to a new level.
