Neymar and Morelos- the Daily Record explains the transfer link!

The Daily Record has surpassed itself by inserting a Neymar link into the latest Alfredo Morelos non-story. The only step still to take is to add in the Bayern Munich payback clause.

After more than three months without a proper training session it seems that even Colombian clubs won’t offer Morelos any sort of contract.

European clubs clearly have no interest in Sevco’s record European goalscorer but Santos are a new name preparing to make an offer or keeping tabs on the situation.

Back in 2013 Neymar left Santos for Barcelona, swapping the club of Pele for the team of Lionel Messi but in line with the Malik Tillman deal it seems that a decade later Santos are in line for a windfall from Neymar’s transfer from Paris Saint Germain to Al Hilal.

Explaining it all the Record has uncovered:

And La Gazzetta dello Sport, in reporting on the saga, say that Santos are eyeing Morelos as a potential player to fill the void when the striker leave. The transfer window in Brazil has closed but they can sign free agents, making Morelos a viable option. And in a further twist to the transfer tale they add that Neymar’s imminent £69m move from Paris-Saint Germain to Al-Hilal could provide the cash with Santos, where the Brazilian superstar started his career before moving to Barcelona, due to a solidarity payment of around £3m they are set to receive.

It would be quite an achievement for Santos to be getting a 10% cut on a transfer fee as PSG suffer a £130 hit on the striker that they signed from Barcelona in 2017.

Morelos transfer tales have been a fantastic source of clicks for the Record down the years, almost in line with the crash in their already low credibility.

From January 2018, six months after his signing from HJK Helsinki, when they championed the move to a mysterious Chinese club the Record has been on the case for a transfer, ideally for Dembele Dollars.

All sorts of weird and wonderful scenarios have been painted with virtually no substance. Clubs across Europe have been keeping tabs on the Colombian without quite getting to the stage of making an offer.

Galatasaray, Sevilla and Porto have been the clubs most regularly linked with £20m bids for Morelos, now available as a free agent there isn’t a sniff of interest in the former Ibrox ace.
