international Edmundo has warned


about joining

Newcastle United


The 30-year-old star is said to be set to leave

Paris Saint-Germain

in the summer, with reports suggesting the French club are willing to sell him if they receive the right offer. Newcastle is one of the teams that closely monitors his situation and after the ownership of the club reaches the Saudi investment fund, they will have the financial ability to pay the figure desired by PSG. However, Edmundo believes the move would be detrimental to Neymar, with the Brazil star facing a difficult time settling in at Newcastle.

He said:

"Newcastle is the nouveau riche. Now, I've been to Newcastle, it's a small, cold town.

"If he has difficulty adapting in Paris, he would not be satisfied in Newcastle. If they pay him what he earns, he goes.

"But he needs to be focused, concentrated, even because it's a World Cup year. If he has an equal performance to the last two World Cups, will the next coach see him as a pillar for the future?"

Asked for his thoughts on Neymar's performances at PSG, Edmundo said: "It was not a good choice for him to go to PSG.

"It was natural that he would earn what Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo earn, but over time, at Barcelona.

"He understood that he should go to PSG because of the money. The sports project was spectacular, but it was more for the team to show up than to win."
