Neymar’s Potential Move to Premier League Teams Sparks Speculation
The current Brazilian forward, who transferred from Barcelona for a record-breaking €222 million (£198m/$236m) in 2017, is under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025. While he has scored 17 goals and assisted 16 times in 28 games this season, Neymar‘s relationship with PSG’s supporters has been strained, and doubts persist regarding his contribution to the team’s overall success.
According to 90min, the French club is willing to sell the 31-year-old if an appropriate buyer can be identified, with several leading English clubs, including the Reds and the Red Devils, reportedly contacted about their potential interest. The article suggests that Neymar would like to play in the Premier League before retiring, with Newcastle, now owned by billionaires, also mentioned as a potential destination. Foot Mercato reports that Neymar’s representatives have met with the Blues co-owner Todd Boehly, and it is expected that both Liverpool and Manchester United will be looking to strengthen their attacking options in the upcoming transfer window.
Neymar’s Past Performances: A Look Back at the Brazilian Superstar’s Career
Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, known simply as Neymar, has had a remarkable career as a professional footballer. The Brazilian superstar, who was born in Mogi das Cruzes, São Paulo, began his career with Santos FC, a club where he would become a prolific goal scorer and help win multiple domestic and international titles. Since then, Neymar has played for some of the most prestigious clubs in the world and established himself as one of the greatest players of his generation.
Early Career: Santos FC
Neymar’s early career was marked by his time at Santos FC, where he made his professional debut at the age of 17 in 2009.

That year, Neymar was named the South American Footballer of the Year, and his performances attracted the attention of European clubs.
Move to Europe: FC Barcelona and PSG
In 2013, Neymar signed with FC Barcelona, one of the biggest clubs in the world. He formed a formidable attacking trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, known as MSN, and won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey titles, and the UEFA Champions League in his four seasons with the club. Neymar’s performances on the pitch were often dazzling, and he won the Ballon d’Or for his contribution to Barca’s success.
In 2017, Neymar became the most expensive player in history when he signed for Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €222 million. In his first season with PSG, Neymar scored 28 goals in 30 appearances and helped the club win the Ligue 1 title. He continued to perform at a high level in his subsequent seasons, winning more domestic titles and being named the Ligue 1 Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019.
Neymar’s performances for the Brazilian national team have been nothing short of sensational. He made his debut in 2010 and has since scored over 70 goals in 115 appearances, making him Brazil’s third-highest scorer of all time. He helped Brazil win the Olympic gold medal in 2016, and he was also part of the team that won the 2013 Confederations Cup. However, Neymar’s greatest achievement with Brazil came in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, where he was instrumental in leading the team to the semifinals.
