The 2015/16 Premier League season is not even over and everyone is looking ahead to the next campaign, especially with a certain Pep Guardiola heading over to England.
The former Barcelona manager will leave his role at Bayern Munich at the end of the season and head over to the Etihad Stadium to take over as Manchester City’s new manager.
Whether you agree with City’s decision to replace Manuel Pellegrini with Guardiola or not, you have to admit he will bring some excitement to the Premier League.
When a new manager joins a club the size of Manchester City, the best way to become an automatic hero is to sign one of the best players in the world and Guardiola can become a club legend even before a ball is kicked by signing a player like Neymar.
Why would Neymar leave Barcelona for Manchester?
That is a good question, but Bettingpro.com really do believe that the Brazilian superstar will be strutting his stuff in the Premier League at City next season.
Let’s not forget, money talks in modern football and Manchester City are probably one of just a few teams in the world that could win a bidding war with Barca when it comes to Neymar’s wages plus the £140 million reported release clause.
There is another strong reason why Neymar could quit the Nou Camp in the summer, and that is his well publicised tax problems. Last year a Brazilian court froze the 23-year-olds assets amid allegations of tax evasion from 2011-2013, while the club are also under scrutiny for the way they handle their tax issues as well.
His father told the media last year that his son could end up leaving Spain if they continued to be persecuted and with Guardiola now going to City, Neymar may fancy a change. It is easy to say that the likes of Neymar and Lionel Messi are the best players in the world, but until they move away from La Liga and try their hand in leagues like the Premier League of Serie A then they cannot be classed as the best – doing it in a league that only three teams can win does not make you the greatest.
Neymar’s reputation as one of the best strikers in the world will only increase if he managed to be a success in a league like the Premier League, where you can guarantee he will be kicked from pillar to post for 90 minutes every single week.
If he can strike up a partnership with Sergio Aguero and handle the cold weather on a wet Wednesday night in Stoke, then he will be able to finally say he is the best in the world.
Neymar and Aguero up front would delight every single Manchester City fans and if that partnership does not put bums on seats and trophies in cabinets then nothing will.
