Despite the huge transfer speculation swirling around Barca’s Brazilian international Neymar and the amount of cash Paris Saint Germain are prepared to splash, the 25-year-old still has an eye for goal.
Neymar put Barca ahead against Serie A Champions Juventus in the pre-season International Cup in New Jersey on 15 minutes after a neat one two before curling home from close range.
He was on the score sheet again after 26 minutes with a goal which oozed class.
PSG will be hoping for more of the same if they get their man
Chiellini got one back for Juve, but the die was cast, the deed was done.
Barca boss is Ernesto Valverde wants him to stay at the Nou Camp:“Barcelona cannot do without Neymar. Absolutely. We want Neymar here . We know the importance he has to our game, our dressing room, the team dynamic, and we want him here It’s clear,” he said after the match.
The money PSG are prepared to pay is stratospheric.
An up front signing on fee of €40m.
A world record transfer of €222m.
And a mere €30 million-per-year at the Parc des Princes.
That is a seven zero contact as opposed to a zero hours contract.
