Olympique Marseille v Paris Saint-Germain Rivalry: Short But Passionate

PSG vs Marseille

The Olympique Marseille v Paris Saint-Germain football rivalry is known by two names, Le Classique and the Derby de France. This is not a rivalry born from proximity, as many are. The two teams are located in cities in different regions of France. It is, instead, a social and cultural rivalry, as Olympique Marseille represents the working class people and port city of Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain is seen as being associated with the ultimate bastion of French society and culture, Paris. It is Marseille, the power center of the south, versus Paris the capital city in the north.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is the top transfer target for Barcelona this summer, according to both Diario Sport and El Mundo Deportivo.

Neymar failed in his attempts to force through a move back to the Catalan giants last year after becoming frustrated with life in Paris.

But according to the Spanish newspaper, Neymar is still determined to return to Barca amid a ‘climate of tension’ between him and his fellow Brazilian Leonardo.

The former Santos forward left the Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017 for a world record €222m fee, but reports continue to suggest he may be open to a departure from the Parisians.

Edinson Cavani Set To Leave PSG On A Free Transfer

PSG striker Edinson Cavani will reportedly leave the club next summer, with Atletico Madrid and Inter Miami interested in signing the Uruguayan on a free transfer.

The La Liga club has identified Cavani as a potential transfer target in January following their struggles in front of goal under Diego Simeone this term.

With Alvaro Morata the club’s only fit striker, Atletico are sixth in La Liga and have scored just 16 goals from 16 games.

Atletico would be keen to push through a deal in January, but would struggle to cater for Cavani’s wage demands given his current salary worth over €18m in Paris.

PSG Refuse To Offer Neymar A New Contract

Neymar PSG

Paris Saint-Germain will not offer Neymar a new deal as they believe he is already leaving, according to Sport.

The Brazilian’s contract expires in June 2022 and the Ligue 1 champions do not believe there is a rush to extend his current deal.

The 27-year-old has expressed his desire to leave Paris which has greatly cooled the relationship between both parties. So much so that sports director Leonardo insists he will not devote any effort to renew Neymar’s contract.

Neymar’s father, who is negotiating the contract on behalf of his son, is said to be making life incredibly difficult for PSG, in the hope of convincing them to sell.

In a clear indication of the French club’s growing impatience with the Brazilian, Leonardo told Le Parisien:
