Bayern Boss Hits Out At PSG's Neymar Pursuit

Bayern Munich Boss Hits Out At Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar Pursuit

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 25, 2017 05:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness feels that Paris Saint-Germain's rumoured big-money move for FC Barcelona superstar Neymar is a "sign of weakness".

Reports: Messi Picks Three Players Who Could Replace Neymar

PSG will be hoping to improve on their poor 2016/17 campaign, during which they finished second in Ligue 1 and were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the Round of 16.

The French side is believed to have the backing of their Qatari owners in their chase for the Brazil international, and are said to be willing to pay his €222 million (R3.3 billion) release clause, a move Hoeness does not agree with.

"This is rather a sign of weakness," Bayern's president told Bild.

"If I have to spend a lot of money to reach nothing, it is rather a sign that I have not worked so well before.

"And that's why I cannot be so interested. The most expensive transfer is not necessarily the best, (but) rather the one that does the most.

"I think that is why we have to find our own way in the shark pool."

There has been no confirmed bid for Neymar just yet, but there are plenty of reports suggesting one will be made soon.

Psg they don't know how build a team, instead of buying more quality players they want to spend more money on one player as like he will win a game alone.

These are just rumours, even if they do make the bid, Neymar Jr will never play for mediocrity!
