Paris Saint Germain are making a contingency plan in case Neymar leaves the club in the summer. The Brazilian seems unsettled & rumors of his departure flare up every time the transfer window nears. And if reports from France are to be believed, Sadio Mane tops the list of replacements.
The Senegalese attacker has been in fine form this season for Liverpool & leading their title charge. He also contributed immensely to their victorious Champions League campaign last season. Mane has also outperformed his teammate Mohammed Salah in 2019. Although any move will not come cheap for the French champions. Not to mention that Liverpool values him & would not want to part with their prized possession. And thinking from Mane’s point of view, would he want to depart from Jurgen Klopp’s project which is working wonders for everyone involved? Stranger things have happened in football. If a good offer is presented & Mane is looking for a new challenge, a move cannot be completely ruled out. And PSG is known to relish the challenge of getting seemingly impossible deals done.
Les Parisiens like his profile because of the defensive and attacking intensity that the ex-Southampton man brings, alongside his exemplary mentality, and they likely feel that he counters the perceived weak points of Neymar Jr’s game. To many in Paris, he is the “perfect” candidate to replace him. The Ligue 1 champions will also attempt to sign Rennes wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga who starred against them earlier in the season despite being just 16 years old. Do you think Mane’s move will materialize? Or PSG should look for other candidates. Tell us about your views in the comments section.
