Neymar move from PSG could trigger transfer merry-go-round in Italy involving Paulo Dybala, Mauro Icardi, Edin Dzeko and Gonzalo Higuain

  • Neymar was left out of the PSG squad for their Ligue 1 opener against Nimes
  • Advanced talks are underway with both Real Madrid and Barcelona interested 
  • Juventus’ Paulo Dybala is being lined up as Neymar’s replacement at PSG
  • Mauro Icardi could transfer to Juve with Edin Dzeko then going to Inter Milan
  • Gonzalo Higuain would complete the chain by moving to Roma  

Neymar’s potential transfer from PSG could trigger a transfer merry-go-round in Serie A involving names such as Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi.

It is no secret Brazilian forward Neymar wants a move away from the French champions, with talks advancing with both Real Madrid and Barcelona according to PSG’s sporting director Leonardo. 

Should Neymar get his wish and move back to Spain though, it could create a chain of transfers effecting some of the best players in Serie A, according to Italian outlet La Gazzetta Sportiva.

Argentinean Paulo Dybala is not part of Maurizio Sarri’s plans at Juventus 

The Italian outlet La Gazzetta Sportiva has reported on the potential transfer merry-go-round

Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, who was wanted by both Manchester United and Tottenham before the English transfer window closed on Thursday, is being mooted as Neymar’s replacement at PSG. 

If that occurs, Juventus are keen on taking Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi, while Inter would respond by attempting to sign striker Edin Dzeko from Roma. 

And the circle would be complete as Roma would be interested in signing Gonazlo Higuain, who has only just returned to Juve from a loan-deal at Chelsea during the back end of last season.  

Mauro Icardi has had a fractured couple of years at Inter Milan amid rumours of a move away 

Roma’s Edin Dzeko could be lined up by Inter Milan should Icardi leave the San Siro 

Juventus’ Gonzalo Higuain could then make the switch to the Italian capital 

Obviously, all this does depend on Neymar’s move away from PSG, which is still very much up in the air. 

The latest is that Neymar was left out of the PSG squad which plays Nimes on Sunday in Ligue 1, amid advanced transfer talks between Barcelona and Real Madrid, with the Brazilian favouring a return back to the Nou Camp. 

Last season Neymar scored 23 goals and provided 13 assists for PSG in 28 appearances across all competitions.

Since joining PSG from Barcelona in 2017, Neymar has won two Ligue 1 titles in addition to the Coupe de France, the Coupe de la Ligue and the Trophee des Champions. 

The European transfer window closes on September 2.
