Neymar Warned He May Have To Retire At Paris Saint-Germain
Neymar has been warned that he may have to retire at Paris Saint-German unless he lowers his ridiculous salary demands.
Neymar, 27, was unable to secure a move back to Spain after Barcelona failed to agree terms with Paris Saint-Germain, and La Liga president Javier Tebas believes the superstar forward is in danger of retiring in France.
"It is always important to have good assets to increase [La Liga's] value, but he is not essential," he said about the Neymar transfer saga.
"If Neymar comes, good. If Neymar doesn't come, I don't see it as essential, because we continue to grow.
"The problem of not coming back now [to Barcelona] has to do with his own departure to PSG. It was an off-market transfer, it was only possible to happen with 'traps' to increase sponsorships.
"When you do it out of the market, it is impossible to sell again at this price. In view of the market, Neymar will retire at PSG unless he lowers his salary and also his PSG claims."
Barcelona and Real Madrid courted Neymar all summer but to no avail. Neither club met PSG's asking price of £200 million with the player set to remain at the club for at least another season.
And when he found out he had to stay in the French capital, he reportedly broke down in tears.
Spanish outlet El Chiringuito claim that Neymar was reduced to tears when his sensational return to the Camp Nou was dead in the water.
The report also claims Barcelona contacted their former player on Sunday to tell him they had done everything in their power to sign him.
When Neymar announced he was staying at the club, the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room teased him by saying "se queda" to him multiple times.
The Spanish phrase refers to Gerard Pique's Instagram post back in July 2017.
The Barcelona defender uploaded a picture of himself and Neymar accompanied with the words "Se queda" - translated as "He stays" - only for the player to complete a world record transfer to PSG.
Neymar is yet to play for PSG this season.
