Will the ‘MNM line’ of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi, the strongest trio of Saint-Germain in Paris, France go through the process of disbanding?
France’s RMC Sports reported on the 21st (Korean time), “Neymar promised to return to his former team, Santos.”
According to the media, Neymar visited Santos home stadium that day to watch the CONMEBOL (South American Football Confederation) Copa Sudamericana Group E second leg (0-0) between Santos and Audax Italiano, and declared Santos’ return after the match.
Neymar, who is concentrating on recovering in Brazil after suffering an ankle injury at PSG, is said to have expressed his feelings about returning to his former team after 10 years.
“It’s so nice to be home. It feels like home here,” said Neymar. “I’ll be back someday.” And he corrected again, “I’ll be right back.”스포츠토토
Growing up at Santos as a youth, Neymar also made his professional debut at Santos. The 16-year-old emerged like a comet in 2009 and dominated the Brazilian league.
Since then, world-class teams such as Real Madrid and Barcelona have been targeting Neymar. After playing for Santos until 2013, Neymar entered the European stage with a move to Barcelona.
His first season was somewhat disappointing, but from the 2014/15 season, he formed the MSN line with Messi and Luis Suarez, leading Barcelona to win three crowns of the season. When Messi was injured in the 2015/16 season, he took on the role of a real ace.
Neymar, who played in Barcelona until the 2016/17 season, moved to PSG in the summer of 2017 with the most expensive transfer fee in football history (220 million euros, about 298 billion won).
PSG, which had been strengthening its power with Middle Eastern oil money on its back, planned to become the best team in Europe by conquering the UEFA Champions League with Neymar at its center.
However, Neymar was plagued by injuries in the rough style of the French league and was unable to win the Champions League. It is evaluated that the recruitment of Neymar was disappointing.
Last season, as Messi was recruited, he formed the MNM line with Mbappe, but was eliminated in the Champions League round of 16, and this season, he was eliminated from the round of 16 and could not even step on the threshold of winning.
Locals are strongly considering the dissolution of the MNM line at the end of this season. In fact, Messi is also rumored to return to Barcelona.
In this situation, as even Neymar announced the return of Santos, the dissolution of PSG’s strongest trio came before our eyes.
