Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain is crazy IMO #18
As I’m sure plenty of you football fanatic’s already know, Neymar dos Santos Junior has moved to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of £200 million. Not only has he smashed the transfer fee record, he also smashed the wages record and this must be seen as a mess.
Neymar has moved from one of the world’s best teams, Barcelona, to another, PSG, but for a mind-blowing £200 million. This fee has obliterated every single transfer fee there is with the record being broken by over £100 million!
While it’s still a novelty for Neymar, this price tag can soon come back to bite him later on in his career. If the Brazilian doesn’t perform up to his extremely high standards, he will be known as a waste of money and that’s the last thing he would want. A bright start is something that he will be craving in his first couple of games for the French giants.
Currently, the 25-year-old is insisting that he has not moved for the money, he has moved to genuinely start at what he calls a ‘better organised’ club. Despite Neymar saying this, I think most football fans across the globe realise that he has purely gone for the money.
The brilliant Brazilian has moved from arguably the best club in the world, to a team that hasn’t really achieved much in the last couple of years. The 25-year-old is going to receive £780,000-a-week – that’s without all of his sponsorship and endorsement deals!
Neymar is turning out to be the spoilt child in the team that no-one gets along with. He’s getting whatever he wants and thinks he is the best which really isn’t the attitude to have in the beautiful game.
Later on that memorable night after the deal was complete, Neymar wrote on his Instagram: “I have conquered everything an athlete can conquer. I have lived unforgettable moments. But a player of any calibre needs challenges and for the second time in my life, I have contradict my father.”
At this moment in time, the situation is a mess which will shake players in all leagues. With Neymar transferring from Barcelona, the legendary strike force of MSN – Messi, Suarez and Neymar – will be no longer.
Although every striker at Barcelona is nothing short of fantastic, Neymar actually came out with the worst statistics since he joined in 2014. With Suarez and Messi scoring over 100 goals since 2014, it’s a wonder as to why PSG didn’t go for one of them two.
Some would say that Neymar is worth it as he is world class, but it is questionable as to whether Messi or Ronaldo are even worth that. Without a shadow of a doubt, Neymar will be one of the best players in the world after Messi and Ronaldo retire, if he isn’t already, but he is not worth £200 million!
It is the first time ever PSG – ranked the 11th most valuable club in the world – have broken the global transfer record, with Real Madrid previously paying five of the past six highest fees in world football.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that Neymar has an unbelievably bright future ahead of him. Despite this, it would be even brighter if he were to stay at Barcelona. Everyone in football wishes Neymar the best of luck, despite many thinking he will crumble under the pressure of his price tag.
