Alex Crook has said that it is unlikely Neymar will leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer transfer window.
Crook expects the Brazilian to remain at PSG because most clubs cannot pay the outrageous wages he receives at PSG.
Having persuaded Kylian Mbappe to stay at the club, making him the highest-paid player in the world, there is a report in France that PSG is trying to push Neymar out of the door.
A report by RMC Sport says that the only clubs who could afford the Brazilian are Manchester United, Chelsea, and Newcastle should he leave.
But Crook said: “He’s on huge wages and that’s why they’re going to struggle to shift him.
“There’s a report saying the only clubs that could afford him were Manchester United, Chelsea, and Newcastle.
“Absolutely no chance does Eddie Howe go for Neymar. He’s a million miles away from the player that Eddie Howe signs.
“Chelsea might just be crazy enough and I don’t see Manchester United going down that road with this rebuild they’ve got.
“I think he’ll stay at PSG.”
