Manchester United has a chance of seeing Neymar’s presentation at the Old Trafford if Cristiano Ronaldo opts to leave for a better challenge.
The Red Devils have been linked to the $232 million player, PSG signed from Barcelona.
Neymar’s time in Paris
Neymar‘s future in Paris doesn’t look so bright following the Champions League exit in the R16. 2 years ago, the Brazillian lost the big-eared trophy to the Bavarians in the final.
Despite scoring 13 goals and assisting 6 times, the former Barcelona player doesn’t look happy. The silverware drought has been haunting the 30-year-old since 2015, the last time he won a UCL.
Playing in others’ shadow
Kylian Mbappe has grown to become one of the top players by overtaking the Copa American champion. In addition to his nightmares, Lionel Messi the greatest to ever play the game signed for PSG this year.
With such star-studded players in the team, the spotlight was taken away from Neymar’s position in recent years.
Neymar has however proved himself to be worthy of the $232 million which Al-Khelaifi paid for him. He scored 100 times and provided 60 assists to his teammates in a span of five seasons.
Paris Saint-Germain’s take
It is hard for anyone to let go of their best player on the pitch. In contrast to that, there are many reasons that could affect the Brazilian’s current situation.
How Mbappe’s contract renewal affects Neymar
PSG has now perhaps closed the most significant transaction of the summer with Kylian Mbappe‘s agreement to a fresh long-term contract with the French powerhouses when it appeared that he was set to depart. The hammer might now fall on Neymar’s head as a result of this.
The club signed him on a massive amount and would definitely not let him go like they let Edinson Cavani leave a few years ago.
Manchester United jumping into the scene
Manchester United has been alerted by looking at all this drama taking place on one side of Europe. The Red Devils wish to sign the player just in case their star boy Cristiano Ronaldo decides to leave.
United’s risk of losing Ronaldo
The 3-time Champions League winners haven’t been themselves since the legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson left. That trophy drought carried on for years and even now continues to disappoint the fans. This however doesn’t entertain Cristiano Ronaldo who always wishes to win more trophies.
The 5-time Ballon D’Or winner netted the ball 18 times and assisted thrice. He is hands down the best thing that’s happened to the club in years. But due to their poor performance in all competitions, Ronaldo might leave Manchester United.
United’s chances of landing Neymar
Manchester United might sign Neymar because the Brazilian hasn’t experienced the Premier League and no other club other than Chelsea has been linked to the player as of now. It shouldn’t be a hard time in case there’s progress from the other side as well.
Additionally, the erstwhile Santos star won’t be inexpensive. Therefore, it will be up to the Glazers to decide if it will be worthwhile to acquire the left-wing or if this is a chance that is best given up.
It is simple to suggest as supporters that Neymar will be a wise addition to Manchester United. It could also be a wise option in light of the innovation and objectives he can offer at Old Trafford. But it is crucial that the management avoids permanently harming the team’s economic state.
In conclusion, the Brazilian might join Manchester United or stay at PSG. As of now, there aren’t any moves from anyone. It’s just a matter of time and things would only get triggered if Ronaldo chooses to leave Manchester United.
