Neymar on the move? Bookmakers don’t think so

June 18th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

Neymar is being strongly linked with a move away from Paris Saint Germain, but Bookmakers do not see it happening this summer.

The Brazilian megastar moved to the French capital in 2017 when PSG made him the most expensive player in history as they paid Barcelona £200million to secure his transfer.

But now the future of the 27-year-old appears in doubt, with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisting they they will not put up with any ‘star behaviour’ and players will be shown the door if they don’t want to be at the club.

World’s Most Expensive Football Transfers
Player From To Fee Year
Neymar Barcelona Paris Saint Germain £200,000,000 2017
Kylian Mbappe Monaco Paris Saint Germain £116,000,000 2018
Ousmane Dembele Borussia Dortmund Barcelona £97,000,000 2017
Paul Pogba Juventus Manchester United £89,000,000 2016
Eden Hazard Eden Hazard Real Madrid £88,000,000 2019
Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Juventus £88,000,000 2018
Gareth Bale Tottenham Hotspur Real Madrid £86,000,000 2013
Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United Real Madrid £80,000,000 2009
Gonzalo Higuain Napoli Juventus £75,300,000 2016
Romelu Lukaku Everton Manchester United £75,000,000 2017
Virgil van Dijk Southampton Liverpool £75,000,000 2018

Now reports are suggesting that Barcelona could be set to make an offer to take him back to Catalunya – whilst Real Madrid and Manchester United are also linked.

But Bookmakers have him at 1/8 to stick with PSG during this summer window.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The speculation around Neymar has been constant almost since the day he arrived in France, things have escalated this summer.

“However, Bookmakers are not convinced listing him at 1/8 to stay put – which is near 90% probability, so if you think a move is on the cards then Barcelona at 7/2 could be real value.”

Selected odds on where Neymar will be next season
PSG 1/8
Barcelona 7/2
Real Madrid 9/1
Man City 20/1
Man Utd 25/1
