PSG opted for the hiring of Neymar in 2017, with the intention of making an important football leap, in search of winning the Champions League. The Brazilian had a positive impact since his arrival at the club, but his leading role has been diminishing and, without success in the international competition, his departure is rumored, despite having a contract until 2025.
Given these circumstances, it was learned that Santos de Brasil, an institution where ‘Ney’ exploited his talent in his first years as a professional, is studying the possibility of signing the striker. The news was revealed by Andrés Rueda, president of ‘Peixe’, at a recent press conference.
“We are carrying out actions, but there are things that I cannot talk about. it’s strategy”, stated the director. At the same time, the boss of the powerful Brazilian club assured that it would be immature on his part not to establish any plan in the face of the possible departure of Neymar from PSG.
“Today I received more than 100 messages that told me about ‘Ney’. I hope you can trust us more”, highlighted Andrés Rueda, after the meeting he had with the Deliberative Council of Santos, where the issue was discussed.
Although there is good spirit from the ‘Peixe’ leadership, it is also necessary to mention that the institution has been going through economic problems for a few years, a situation that would make it difficult to close an important signing. Despite this detail, the fans’ enthusiasm for having Neymar again, champion of the Copa Libertadores in 2011, is not diluted.
