Written By Onyeka Daniel

After Kylian Mbappe signed a contract extension with PSG, it was rumored that the French striker was given some power with regards to who stays and leaves the club.

More Details

It is common knowledge that Mbappe and Brazilian striker, Neymar Junior haven’t really gotten along well at the club and consequently, the Brazilian will be ushered out of the club.


According to El Chiringuito, Barcelona have been offered the chance to resign Neymar for a fee of about €50 million. Neymar left Barcelona for PSG in 2017 in one of the most sensational transfers of all time.

In the five years since then, he has won the French Ligue 1 four times out of five but failed in the Champions League. Winning the UCL is the coveted dream of the club’s owners since taking over the club.

Neymar has made 144 appearances for PSG since arriving. He’s contributed 100 goals and 60 assists during that time.

It is also believed that the Parisians are required to bring in revenue, especially from the sales of players, in order to balance their books.

Hence, the reason why they’re putting Neymar on the transfer market and it is also expected that other players will soon be sold by the club to achieve economic balance.


Former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane hasn’t ruled out the possibility of coaching PSG in the future as he stated in a recent interview when asked.

He told L’Equipe that, as a coach of his level, there are only a handful of jobs suited for him to take on and so it would be foolish to rule out one of the biggest clubs in Europe. “Never say never,” Zidane said.

“As a manager, there aren’t 50 clubs where I can go. There are two or three possibilities.” For the moment, it is impossible to see him coaching PSG, as they recently appointed Christophe Galtier, former Nice and Lille coach. He won the Ligue 1 title with Lille in the 2020/21 season, beating PSG to the title.
