La Liga




The outcome of the UEFA Champion League matches is likely to lead to realignment for coaches and star player, Neymar Jr.

Both Real Madrid and PSG dramatically lost at home. It was even more devastating for Neymar Jr. who missed his team’s clashes with Manchester United on account of injury.

He left Barcelona to quit living under the shadows of the more established Lionel Messi. It was a move he envisaged to put him on course to win Champions League and also to win the Ballon d’Or.

Those dreams remain unfulfilled. The year 2018 saw Luka Modric claim 2018 Ballon d’ Or, while Neymar didn’t even make it to the top 10 and now PSG are out of the Champions League failing to reach the quarter-final in the second season in a row.

Tribuna, a Spanish publication, quoting a Barcelona-based newspaper SPORT claimed that Real Madrid would want to capitalize on this situation by bidding €350m for the 27-year-old Neymar. 


He has been tracked by Perez for several seasons and his recent misfortunes would come in handy for Madrid’s plans, as per Mundo Deportivo, who also report that The Whites have high chances to land the Brazilian by also offering him the gigantic salary of €45m (£38.7m).
