PSG move would be a ‘dream’ for Neymar, says player’s agent

The 24-year-old has excelled as part of Barça’s three-pronged attack, alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, with the club six points clear at the top of the La Liga, through to the final of the Copa del Rey final and into the Champions League quarter-finals. He has a release clause of €193m (£154m) in his contract according to his representative Wagner Ribeiro, who nevertheless feels a “dream” move to PSG is a possibility. “Neymar has a contract with Barça until 2018,” Ribeiro told L’Equipe. “He feels good in Barcelona, he’s loved over there and he’s playing for the best team in the world. It’s no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club. “We’ll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract.”

A move could happen even before then, though, with Ribeiro acknowledging PSG are one of the few teams in the world capable of funding a move for the player. The Swiss Ramble: Leicester City. The story of the season is undoubtedly Leicester City.

The Foxes spent five months at the bottom of the Premier League last year before an amazing resurgence that included seven wins in their last nine games that took them to safety in a respectable 14th place. However, it is fair to say that nobody predicted that they would be leading the table with every chance of winning the title. Their success is all the more extraordinary, given that they changed manager in the summer, bringing in Claudio Ranieri after Nigel Pearson was dismissed for a series of what might be loosely termed as “PR misdemeanours”. Although a popular figure, Ranieri’s appointment was widely ridiculed, despite his solid track record at clubs like Valencia and Chelsea, though it looks like the Italian will have the last laugh after a season that the club itself has described as “remarkable”.

"Keep the party going" "Happy talk" The club’s ambitions are altogether different these days. "Wes One (shine on me)" "Born to run" The Swiss Ramble: Paris Saint-Germain. So, barring any problems with a medical, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will today sign for Paris-Saint Germain.

The Swiss Ramble: Paris Saint-Germain

Many in the football world have been shocked by PSG’s audacious €65 million swoop for the Milan duo of Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, but it really should come as no surprise given the club’s massive transfer outlay ever since it was purchased by Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) last summer. In much the same way as Manchester City did when they signed Robinho after their Abu Dhabi takeover, PSG immediately made a resounding statement of intent when they shattered the French transfer record with the €42 million purchase of Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore from Palermo.

They also scooped up the cream of French football, buying Ligue 1 leading scorer Kevin Gameiro and powerful midfielder Blaise Matuidi, while raiding Serie A for Jérémy Menez (from Roma), Mohamed Sissoko (Juventus) and Salvatore Sirigu (Palermo), and securing the services of the Uruguayan captain Diego Lugano (Fenerbahce). 2106899 DOWNLOAD.

Next season we will have to continue our hard work to keep on growing our club reputation both in France and in the world.
