Philippe Coutinho knows where Neymar Jr will be next season

Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho has revealed that he knows where his country mate Neymar Jr would be at the end of the next season.

The Brazilian star moved from playing alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to playing with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani in the summer when he switches sides from Barcelona to Paris St Germain.

After a blazing start to his season at the French capital, Neymar’s relationship with his teammates has deteriorated. Further, the Brazilian was booed by his own fans after PSG’s massive 8-0 win over Dijon in the league to open a massive lead at the top of the table.

Down-fall for the Brazilian: 

The event transcribed when the scoreline was still at 7-0 when the Uruguayan striker was tackled down to the ground for the referee to award a penalty.

It was expected that Cavani would take the penalty, which would see him go past Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the top of the goal-scoring chart. However, it was taken by Neymar only to be booed by fans post full-time.

And according to Spanish publication Don Balon, Neymar has made his intention to leave clear to his international team-mate Coutinho. Don Balon evens adds that the 25-year-old is will to take a pay-cut to move to Real Madrid.

Neymar would move to Madrid, only if Cristiano Ronaldo moves out of the club which seems like a possibility after a disappointing campaign for the Los Blancos. Karim Benzema is the next in the line to be axed after a string of terrible performance at Santiago Bernabeu.

Author’s take:

It is likely that according to multiple reports that Neymar will make a move to Real Madrid sooner or later. The fee and the compatibility will not be an issue as the Brazilian’s current club plays a similar kind of football to the one that they play at the Spanish capital.

However, the move would take some courage on the part of the Brazilian as he was earlier part of the historic trio at Barcelona where their scoring rate was tremendous.
