Will Neymar consider moving to Madrid or City?
As we had discussed earlier, Neymar's father had confirmed that Neymar is in no mood to leave PSG for now.
Although a move away cannot be still ruled out, chances are it could go either way.
While Neymar's regular injuries have taken a toll on his PSG career, it is unlikely that he would survive in brutal English conditions, especially if he remains injury-prone.
