A month from the end of the transfer window, anything can still happen regarding the future of Neymar, who PSG would like to part with.
His good humor, his first return from vacation, his sudden taste for interviews and commercial requests, Neymar returned to Paris SG with much better intentions. Not to spoil anything, he is clearly in great form at the start of the season and the preparation has been well digested, judging by his form during the Trophée des Champions against Nantes. The new Neymar is starting to dream again, and there is no doubt that this positive attitude will see him receive a more than adequate reception from the PSG fans during the upcoming matches at the Parc des Princes. Everyone is pulling in the same direction, and Parisian fans know that a great Neymar during the season can lead to big things in May.
However, all these good intentions do not make us forget at all the real situation of the Brazilian at PSG. The leaders of the capital club have not appreciated his attitude in recent seasons, and have been disappointed by his level of performance and seriousness. The Emir of Qatar clearly wanted the skin of the former Santos prodigy, and that hasn’t necessarily changed, although Neymar’s behavior obviously helps the pill pass.
Mbappe no longer believes in Neymar
And if the Brazilian is also blameless, it is because the click occurred long before the recovery. According to El Confidencial, Neymar was warned by PSG that the door to an exit was wide open this summer, and that this threat should be taken seriously. Despite his contract extension and the fact that few clubs can pay for his services or have grace in his eyes, the former Barcelona player has been threatened with being fired at any cost from PSG. In particular, he was reminded that his supporters in the dressing room were few and far between, and that even Kylian Mbappé did not really feel the need to keep Neymar at all costs at Paris SG in order to achieve the goals set. A hellish cold shower for the Brazilian, who still considered himself untouchable, and he understood that it was no longer so.

With a new coach and a new game system, everyone is finding their place, and for now there is no mention of Neymar’s departure. But this could still evolve as PSG have sent messages to European clubs that offers could always fall to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi’s office, and would be looked into if necessary. A way to continue to put pressure on the Parisian number 10, although this means of influencing his behavior will stop in September.
