The future of Neymar Jr. has been a topic of conversation this past week, with reports linking the 30-year-old to a possible move to the Premier League since the clubs there would be able to afford a fee and his wages.
One of the clubs connected to the Brazil international is Newcastle United, which recently got financial backing from its new owners. As a result, midfielder and countryman Joelinton is doing his best recruiting.
In an interview with Cast Futebol Clube, the 25-year-old extended an invite to Neymar to join The Magpies, adding that the No. 10 jersey would be waiting for him at St. James Park.
“We can get him a spot, sure, in any team in the world,” Joelinton said. “If he comes it will be…I can’t explain it; the man is an idol. He’s huge in world football so the invitation is done. Ney, if you are listening to this, you can come!”

“I’ll run to you all the time. In defense, we assure you the ball will reach him; it will come easy. His quality, the visibility, so if we have the chance.. I hope. Coach, call him, the number 10 shirt is waiting for him. I’ll send a message to Bruno. Bruno has his number; he can send a message to Ney to play there.”
Joelinton isn’t the only Brazilian to play the recruiter role, as Chelsea defender and former teammate Thiago Silva recently spoke about the possibility of reuniting with the forward at Stamford Bridge.
Neymar likely remains at PSG, but his countryman on these Premier League clubs will do their best to convince him to head to England this summer.
