Neymar is technically better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi

Former Brazilian defender Cafu has insisted that his countryman Neymar is technically better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Neymar was once considered a major successor to Messi and Ronaldo but is yet to reach the expected potential. Many football lovers thought that Neymar would also dominate the Ballon d'Or awards. He was supposedly overshadowed by Messi in his time at Barcelona and opted for a move to Paris Saint-Germain where he could be the main man. However, a certain Kylian Mbappe hasn't made it easy for the Brazilian, and Messi has also moved to PSG. Meanwhile, Neymar joined PSG in a deal worth $254 million and still holds the record for the most expensive soccer player in history.

PSG remain flawless in Ligue 1 with 8 wins from 8 games

Paris Saint-Germain have been imperious from the beginning of the season, having recorded eight impressive wins in eight Ligue 1 appearances so far, the Ligue 1 table-toppers are looking poise for the title this season. Their match against LA Surdouee ended in their favor as they carted the whole three points. The early goal came from Idrissa Gueye 14 minutes into the game as Mauricio Pochettino’s side made an early stride into the encounter.

Pochettino – I never considered leaving Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he never considered leaving the Ligue 1 giants this summer and was very clear about his future, thereby discarding reports of exit from the Parc des Princes as mere rumors. The Argentine manager was heavily linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur after the dismissal of his successor Jose Mourinho, especially after PSG lost the Ligue 1 title to Lille. Regardless, the French club made it clear that they were eager to keep their boss amid reports that Spurs would have forced Pochettino's hand to tender his resignation or pay a huge sum to release him from the contract. It's a very funny proposition though, as the Spurs I know would never do that. Pochettino stayed put while Spurs settled for former Wolves boss Nuno Espi...

Sergio Ramos getting set for Paris Saint-Germain medical

Former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is set to undergo a medical before signing for Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year contract shortly after leaving Los Blancos this summer. The 35-year-old Spaniard is one of three signings that the Ligue 1 giants are looking to complete this summer after agreeing transfers for full-back Achraf Hakimi and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Ramos spent close to two decades at Real Madrid, 16 years precisely, played 671 games, won 5 La Liga titles and 4 European Cups but failed to agree with president Florentino Perez for the extension of his deal at the club. It can be recalled that he missed most of the second half of last season due to a series of muscle injuries as well as a knee problem that required surgery. READ: THE 13 BEST FOOTBALL STR...

Man United close in on deal for Raphael Varane

Manchester United are close to completing a deal that would see Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane make a move to Old Trafford this summer according to ESPN sources.

The next priority will be a move for a defender and it will be the next issue to be addressed by the club's...

In an interview with L’Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser al-Khelaifi has revealed Barcelona's pursuit of Neymar as well his club's links with Lionel Messi who has been a central figure in one of the most talked-about transfer sagas in the history of the game.

PSG didn’t see Lille coming, no one saw them either

Well, the major surprise of the 2020/21 football season across Europe, in my opinion, came from Ligue 1 champions Lille, who shocked PSG and displaced them from their position as the most elite in French domestic football for the season. I daresay that no one saw this coming, not even Paris Saint-Germain who have been dominating Ligue 1 for a while now. The rich cannot always have what they want, and this was the case of PSG as they lost out on the league title after the race went to the wire and was decided on the final day. PSG didn't start the season on a high and had a series of highs and lows as the seasons went by. Their inconsistencies cost them this season and the aftermath of the last matchday of the season passes the message that they still have rivals who can battle them d...
