Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has finally made a decision on his future and is set to snub Real Madrid, talkSPORT reports. The Brazilian, who became the world’s most expensive signing last summer when he joined PSG from Barcelona, has been touted as the primary candidate to replace Cristiano Ronaldo ever since his departure but it now seems like the saga has a taken a shocking u-turn that could see the player remain at the Parc des Princes.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Neymar’s decision to stay put in France came after news broke about Ronaldo’s departure. The report suggests that the winger wanted to play alongside the five-time Ballon d’Or winner before eventually taking up the mantle himself.
The departure of Zinedine Zidane is also believed to be one of the reasons behind Neymar’s shocking decision to snub the European champions, who will now turn their attention to other possible candidates.
However, it is also understood that the winger is excited to play under newly appointed manager Thomas Tuchel, who has reportedly talked him through his attacking philosophy. Furthermore, the player has been reportedly offered a number of high-profile signings that could help PSG establish themselves as a powerhouse in Europe next season.
