View From Across The Pond: Neymar has now had his price cut into odds-on to join Barcelona this transfer window, following an official club statement by PSG last night (July 8).
Just five days ago, it was +110 that the Brazilian made the switch to his former team, although that’s now -138 best price.
Some bookmakers have taken further evasive action and cut his odds all the way into -300, which in layman’s terms, is a 75% chance of a return to Barca.
In regards to Neymar staying at PSG past this summer, it’s now even money that he remains at Le Parc des Princes.
Elsewhere, Real Madrid are third favorites at a whopping +2500, followed by both Manchester teams, with United +5000 and City +6600.
Reports are swirling that Barcelona have contacted the French perennial champions, with the Brazilian, reportedly allowed to leave if PSG’s fee is matched.
The Ligue 1 side released a statement claiming Neymar had failed to report for club training without permission, urging fans that the club would take “appropriate action”.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Few will forget the deadly trio of Messi, Suarez, and Neymar in their pomp in the 14/15 season.
“Widely regarded as one of the most dangerous multi-faceted attacks in the game, Barca fans will rejoice that one of the Nou Camp’s favourites could be on the way back.”
