PSG just a step in Neymar’s path to Real Madrid

Por MRod

Although PSG coach says they have no problems with Neymar’s decision of treatment after Ligue 1 injury, the truth is that the relationship between the Brazilian and the Parisian team continues to break. Many fans and specialists consider this is just another move in the path of the superstar towards Real Madrid.

The ex-president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, has assured this Friday during the celebration of the Web Sport Congress that "for Neymar maybe Paris Saint Germain is a previous step to sign for Real Madrid, time will tell". Laporta regretted the injury of the Brazilian attacker and assured that the PSG will notice his absence: "I’m sorry for his injury, he is an important player for his team and they will miss him if they want to raise the 3-1 from the Santiago Bernabéu".

Questioned by the departure of Neymar from Barcelona, the ex-manager of Barça has maintained that, in his opinion, "he was at an age that if he wanted to win a Ballon d’Or, he needed to go to a club where he was the reference." Anyway, Laporta has stressed that while Barza striker Leo Messi is still active "it will be difficult" for Neymar to get the award. "Messi is the best in history," said the lawyer about the Argentine. On a closer note, Joan Laporta said he is satisfied with Barcelona season: "I see a very good campaign, the team is a candidate for everything and it can be a course to remember, we are favorites for the league, we play at home and we can go for the eight points."

Laporta could be right about Neymar anyway. Neymar and the PSG are not in the best terms at the moment, especially after it was known that the footballer decided on his own to travel to Brazil to undergo surgery immediately and not stay in Paris, at least until Wednesday, to support his teammates in the match that the team of Unai Emery must play against Real Madrid. "Neymar only thinks about the selection now," a person familiar with the Brazilian national team agreed from Sao Paulo, clarifying to ESPN that the player "is already in the hands of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) for all purposes" without having anticipated a return to Paris this season.

Unless, of course, PSG get to beat Real Madrid, surpassed the quarterfinals of the Champions Leagues and settled for semifinals, which would cause a new scenario. In words of ESPN, the alarmist speech ("fracture") and the conservative one ("we cannot take risks with the athlete") of Dr. Lasmar discovers the plans of the CBF in this matter: PSG, in the end, has not been more than a spectator without voice or vote.
