PSG to make huge loss as Neymar price tag is named after being transfer listed
Neymar looks to be on his way out of Paris Saint Germain as reports emerge that the newly-crowned French champions have put the Brazilian superstar on the transfer list.
PSG are planning a major overhaul of their squad following yet another disappointing season in Europe, and despite being the club's poster-boy ever since his world record £198 million arrival from Barcelona in 2017, Neymar is likely to be one of the first names on the chopping block this summer.
The club have reportedly slapped a £76million price tag on the 30-year-old's head – which would see them making a £122m loss on the player.
There's little indication that Neymar wants to leave Paris – especially as his contract still has three years to run – and given that team-mate Kylian Mbappe looks destined for pastures new this summer it's unlikely that both would be allowed to leave during the same window.
But according to reports in France, PSG are planning a 'revolution' over the next year or two which could see the face of the club change from top to bottom.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is being eyed as a potential replacement for Mauricio Pochettino – whose one-and-half year spell with the French giants has been underwhelming – while sporting director Leonardo's future also remains up in the air.

Neymar has won four Ligue 1 titles with PSG, bagging 98 goals in the process, but his – and indeed the club's – shortcomings in the Champions League will ultimately stain an otherwise fruitful five-year stint in the French capital should he leave at the end of the season.
Supporters turned on the Brazilian after they were dumped out of Europe by Real Madrid last month, with boos ringing out across the Parc des Princes during their 3-0 win over Bordeaux, and Neymar took a swipe at them moments after securing the Ligue 1 title last week.
"They're going to get tired of whistling, because I have another three years left on my contract," he said.
