The PSG president also recently claimed the world would see the best of Lionel Messi next season, an indication that the Argentine star was still part of the club’s ambitious plans, but where does that leave Neymar?

At the moment, the Brazilian does not have too many options, with three years still remaining on his current deal in Paris.

Sports Brief takes a look at some of the plausible routes Neymar, 30, could take in his career.

1. Move to Juventus

2. Chelsea

Alternatively, Neymar could opt for a move to the Premier League and in the unlikely case it happens, Chelsea would be a perfect slot for him, particularly with the new ownership.

The Blues are set to offload Lukaku to Inter Milan, and this will likely free up space to acquire more world class attackers.

3. Barca return

This is a more plausible route for Neymar, who had three very successful years with the Catalan giants alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Despite Barca’s current financial difficulties, Neymar has a great relationship with them and a return is not far from the equation.

4. Newcastle

Newcastle United is also another club that is willing to flex their financial muscle with elite signings this summer, having gone under new mega-money ownership under a consortium consisting of PCP Capital Partners, Reuben Brothers and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF).

The Magpies are determined to re-establish themselves as one of the big guns in the Premier League from next season under Eddie Howe.
