Neymar’s stance on sensational Newcastle transfer as race heats up for PSG star

Neymar is reportedly dead against joining Newcastle United in the summer transfer window as the race heats up for the PSG star.

PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi has cast doubt over the future of the Brazilian international, 30, after insisting the Ligue 1 champions are not interested in signing any more "flashy, bling-bling" players. Neymar arrived in 2017 for a world-record £200m fee, following his dazzling displays at Barcelona, but is still yet to help the Parisians to a first elusive Champions League crown.

The tricky forward still has three years remaining on his current deal at PSG but has been linked with a mega-money switch elsewhere as the club move in a different direction.

One stumbling block, though, would be his mammoth wages. Neymar is reportedly on a staggering £1.2million-a-week, according to the Mirror, pricing him out of a move to virtually every other club.

However, the Sun report Neymar is an outlandish target for Newcastle as Eddie Howe targets an unlikely push for Europe. Despite taking over the club in the relegation zone, the rejuvenated Magpies finished the 2021/22 season in a respectable 11th and Howe is keen to push ahead with the Saudi-backed Tyneside revolution.

Boasting one of the richest owners in world football, the Toon are said to be one of the few teams willing to fund his eye-watering wages, although French outlet L'Equipe state Neymar is dead against joining the northeast side.

Reports in Spain also suggest Newcastle face competition from Serie A giants Juventus with boss Massimiliano Allegri a huge fan. Former club Barcelona are unable to afford his jaw-dropping salary.

Asked about Neymar's potential departed by Marca, Al-Khelaifi said on Wednesday (June 22): "Some will come and others will go, but these are private negotiations."
