Neymar to remain at PSG

However, Neymar has decided he won't leave Paris Saint-Germain until maybe after the upcoming FIFA World Cup. The forward is believed to be under massive pressure to leave the club this summer.

No suitors have been found for the Brazilian, mainly because of his astronomical wages.

His wages aside, it is said that Neymar has no interest whatsoever in leaving the club this summer.

Messi projected to perform better next season

Sports Brief earlier reported that Argentine star Lionel Messi has had a difficult start at PSG since leaving Barcelona.

In comparison to his Barcelona records, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner has only found the back of the net a few times.

While the 34-year-old Argentine striker has stated that he would explore his choices after Qatar 2022 owing to uncertainties over his future, he is expected to have a brighter season at PSG in the 2022/2023 season.
