According to the media POSTA Deportes, Neymar would be one of the key pieces in the project of San Diego FC, the MLS expansion club that will start playing in U.S. soccer from 2025. Interestingly, the Brazilian star, who currently belongs to Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia, ends his employment relationship in the same year. In addition, Neymar would not arrive alone, as the information details that the new MLS club wants Hugo Sanchez as coach and Guillermo Ochoa as goalkeeper, so they would be the 3 key pieces on which they want to build their project. This was also reported by journalist David Faitelson in the case of the two Mexicans.

In the case of Neymar, he is currently recovering from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and has not played since October 2017 when he was injured in a World Cup Qualifying match against Uruguay. The Brazilian, valued at 45 million euros by the Transfermarkt portal, has one of the highest salaries in the world as he receives almost 129 million dollars a year according to data from the Salary Sport portal, so he would have to lower his economic pretensions.

However, the issue of Guillermo Ochoa would be simpler since the legendary Mexican goalkeeper will no longer continue at Salernitana in Serie A and rumors suggest that he would go to MLS. Ochoa, 38 years old, has been one of the best Mexican goalkeepers in the history of the World Cups, highlighting without a doubt that save he made against Neymar himself in the Brazil 2014 edition that went around the world. In addition, his salary is much more affordable since in 2023 he was paid 1.6 million dollars according to Salary Sport.

Hugo Sánchez would lead the project

According to press reports, Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez would be the coach that San Diego FC would have in mind to lead the project with Neymar and Guillermo Ochoa as leaders of the squad. Hugo, who scored 199 goals as a Real Madrid player and won La Liga's top scorer trophy five times, has not coached professionally since 2012 when he was in charge of Pachuca in Liga MX. As a coach, his numbers are 127 wins, 70 draws and 107 defeats in 304 games.
