With Neymar on the brink of leaving Barcelona for PSG, our traders have been knocking their heads together to predict how his transfer will go.
The good is that they think the Brazilian – regularly dubbed the best in the world – is priced at 7/4 to win the Champions League with the French outfit within three years. The bad, is the 10/1 shot on him failing to score from open play in his first ten games… And the very ugly, a whopping 50/1 to be sent off on his debut.

The mega-deal, which is rumoured to be costing the French side £222 million (yep, it seems like they understand Financial Fair Play as much as us…) looks ready to be made with Neymar being excused from training this morning.
Our traders have been scheming, and we offer novelties:
- To win the Balon d’Or in 2018 – 7/1
- To be the top scoring player in the Champions League this season – 8/1
- To break his own world transfer record – 3/1
- To leave PSG within three years – 5/2
- To be made player-manager at PSG – 20/1
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “So Barcelona are going to stop using MSN. About time – next they’ll be deactivating their Bebo accounts, too.
“And Liverpool fans, we haven’t forgotten about you – we’re now odds-on that Philippe Coutinho becomes Barca’s Nou star. Sorry.”
