Ed question please. Man city are being touted as being interested in our star striker, as well as psg. With the signings citeh have made and the signing pgs may make, wouldn't signing Sanchez put them both in breach of fair play rules and put at risk their champs league places. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It depends on who they sell and how they structure payments etc.. If they cannot justify the deal then, yes, it could become and issue next year. Both will be aware of this and will make provisions.}

Qatar will pay Neymar to buy out his own contract, in exchange for being a spokesperson for their World Cup 2022. He will then move to PSG as a free agent. According to the latest news anyway.

Sickening isn't it.

{Ed001's Note - the same Qatar that already employs Barcelona as a spokesperson for their World Cup bid? They sponsor the club, so already get to use the players in adverts for both their airline and the World Cup. Be an odd thing to then upset the club they sponsor and have worked closely with over the last few years, just to get something they already have.....}

They will just sign some kind of new sponsorship deal with one of their owners companies and will get paid in millions.

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that.}

I do think it sounds unlikely given Barcelona presumably want to hold onto Neymar, but this would be the perfect way to transfer an asset from one subsidiary to another.

{Ed001's Note - that is not how it works, football clubs are not seen as 'subsidiaries'.}

Eds I've a question regarding these far fetched posts I'm reading. Has a player to your knowledge ever moved clubs because of sponsors wanting it. Seems ridiculous to me.

{Ed001's Note - not to my knowledge.}

Thanks ed. I thought it'll be unlikely. I remember when arsenal switched to puma people was saying so and so does advertising for puma so they want him at arsenal. Always seemed stupid rumours.

I read that as a sneer at my post D16, so allow me to clarify - PSG are owned by the Qatari royal family. Qatar do not own Barcelona, they just sponsor them. So they want to advance PSG's interests and see pissing off Barcelona as an acceptable risk if it can make PSG stroll Ligue 1 and have a better shot at winning the CL.

Again, not my view, but the view of the media.

I just find the whole thing stupid If I'm honest. Not you, bob mean no offence to you. Just the way the media feed us such nonsense.

{Ed001's Note - if people weren't dumb enough to believe the tripe, then they wouldn't get fed it!}

That's very true Ed001. Sadly people do and always will. It's the exact reason i just don't buy any newspapers anymore. I used to enjoy sitting down and reading what is going on in the world but most of it especially the sports it's just nonsense. and then there's the sun obviously which makes all the others look honest and respectful 😂.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know why people think PSG need another reason to buy Neymar other than he will increase their brand on and off the pitch. It is nothing to do with Qatar as such.}
