PSG Targeting These Five Players?

Posted Octubre 28, 2017

Nice striker Mario Balotelli is disappointed he won't come up against Neymar when his side visits Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue One on Friday.

The Brazilian moved to the French giants this summer in a £200m transfer which shook the football world.

Neymar was sent off late in the 2-2 draw in Le Classique after clashing with Lucas Ocampos, who may have over-dramatised the incident.

Nice were dealt the blow of losing goalkeeper Yoan Cardinale in the warm-up and within three minutes of kick-off his replacement Walter Benitez was picking the ball out of the net.


Ahead of the new season, PSG brought in Neymar for €220 million as well as loaning Kylian Mbappe from Monaco in a deal that is set to cost €180m next summer.

However, while the Selecao star has no issue with occasional sessions where areas of possible improvement are highlighted, it is the length and consistency of these meetings which are said to be bothering him.

Di María started PSG's first four Ligue 1 Conforama games this season but he has only started once since the end of August, lasting 76 minutes of the 2-1 victory at Dijon FCO a fortnight ago. Emery said of the 25-year-old who joined PSG for a world-record 222 million euros ($261.5 million) in the close season. "We hope that he feels good here, because then he'll be capable of doing great things". Against Marseille, if we do not score the first goal so fast, I am convinced that we win.

Mario Balotelli and co have struggled this term and sit 14th in the table. "You have to be clever in this very complicated market".

According to a report from UOL Sports, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is growing weary of the tactical lessons of manager Unai Emery. "And we mustn't leave them any spaces, because they won't mind making the most of any spaces that do appear".

"Other players are aggressive with him, but it's important that the referees handle that".
