Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is enduring the most challenging period of his career, with his market value going down dramatically as a consequence of his recent downfall
Brought in from Barcelona for a whopping €222m back in summer 2017, the Brazilian has enjoyed a fine debut season at Parc des Princes, netting 19 goals in 20 Ligue 1 outings.
However, Neymar’s career at PSG has never really gained momentum but has instead been highlighted by a series of injuries and off-the-field scandals.
The 27-year-old has sustained two similar injuries during his two-year spell in Paris that has kept him out of action for quite a while.
Moreover, among the many setbacks, the Brazil international is about to face a rape allegation, which is yet another blow to his already damaged reputation.
As a result, Neymar’s market value has hit rock bottom since his arrival on European soil, as he now worth between €120m and €150m.
A drastic €77m value decrease provided by the CIES Football Observatory has come amid claims that the player wants to depart PSG to reunite with his former club Barcelona.
Although it was a nasty breakup when Neymar left the Camp Nou to link up with Edinson Cavani and Co. he is now desperate to return to the place where he made a name for himself.
