Sporting director Leonardo of the Parisiens recently announced that contract negotiations with their star attackers are ongoing, both of whom will see their new deals end in 2022.
In order to be able to finance a new contract for fellow attacker Kylian Mbappe, Paris Saint-Germain is currently considering the prospect of selling Neymar.
PSG sees Mbappe as something of a priority, and they are able to ship Neymar out if it means keeping Mbappe on the books at the Parc des Princes, according to L’Equipe.
Even PSG, however, is not immune to the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, and bumper new contracts for both Mbappe and Neymar in the current financial environment may prove too expensive for the Ligue 1 champions.
The article states that Neymar is already uncertain about his future, but PSG understands that if they are unable to tie the World Cup-winning Frenchman down to a new contract, Real Madrid will be willing to swoop for Mbappe.
