There is a strong possibility that Lionel Messi’s arrival in the United States will serve as a stepping stone on the path to greatness for Major League Soccer. In what is expected to be the most costly sporting event ever played in the United States, the legendary Argentine player will make his debut for Inter Miami later this month. The good news is that despite this, several other renowned stars, such as Neymar, might also be going to North America.
The Major League Soccer (MLS) team New York City FC reportedly wants to sign the superstar player Neymar from the French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer, as reported by MARCA. The Brazilian winger’s current deal with the heavyweights of Ligue 1 will run out in the year 2025. Despite this, his prospects are uncertain ever since he set a new record for his transfer to PSG in 2017.
According to Mundo Deportivo’s sources, City Football Group, the parent company of New York City FC, is keeping an eye on Neymar’s situation at Paris Saint-Germain. They have not yet made contact with the player who formerly played for Barcelona, but they want to do so in the near future.
Neymar’s motivations have emerged as the most important topic of discussion. The Brazilian hasn’t closed the door on playing in the Major League Soccer whenever his time in Europe comes to an end. Since arriving to Paris in 2017, his stay in the city hasn’t gone according to plan, and he’s considering leaving his current position at PSG as a result. There have been rumors that he will be returning to Barcelona this summer, and the player is reportedly willing to take a wage reduction in exchange for the deal. Xavi, the manager of Barcelona, has stated that the winger is not a part of his plans.
If Neymar joins New York City FC, he will follow in the footsteps of many football icons, such as avid Villa, Andrea Pirlo, and Frank Lampard.
