Report: Neymar open to Juve

A report in today’s Mundo Deportivo claims Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is now open to joining Juventus.

Neymar has since returned to training with PSG, but the newspaper insists he is still sold on leaving the club this summer, even if a return to Barcelona seems increasingly unlikely.

With that in mind, the Brazilian would have begun considering moves to Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Juve.

As per the Catalan publication, the Bianconeri’s Champions League credentials and ‘rebirth’ with the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Matthijs de Ligt, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey could prove tempting for the 27-year-old.

However, with the Old Lady having already splashed out, it is highly unlikely they could agree a deal that satisfies both the French club and Financial Fair Play.

Neymar became the world’s most expensive player when he joined PSG from Barca in the summer of 2017 for €222m.

He has gone on to score 51 goals in 58 games, winning two Ligue 1 titles, but his spell in Paris has been overshadowed by injuries and the emergence of Kylian Mbappe.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel admitted after his side’s 6-1 friendly win against Dynamo Dresden on Tuesday: “I knew he wanted to go before Copa America, but it was a matter between the club and Neymar.”
