Regardless of how good things are going for Neymar at Paris Saint Germain, he continues being linked with a return to Spain.
Since moving to France in 2017, the Brazilian star has been surrounded by rumours about possible moves to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But this possibility has been completely turned down by his agent Wagner Ribeiro. Placar this morning published a short interview with the representative, who rubbished all these claims.
“There was a time when he was sad because of his injuries. At that time he was prone to leave, to return to Barcelona or go to Real Madrid. Not today, you can see his joy,” Wagner Ribeiro told Placar.
“I joke with him: living in the city of light, where everyone wants to stroll, enjoying French cuisine, living in a beautiful house, with friends and family close by, playing for one of the best clubs, with everything a person needs and likes… What reason would he have to leave PSG today?”
“Neymar is happy and I think he’ll stay at PSG for at least two more years. Today, without a doubt, it’s easier for Messi to go to PSG than for Neymar to return to Barcelona. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m serious, you can’t doubt Qatar’s economic power.”
PSG spent €222m to sign Neymar from Barcelona in 2017, and whilst claims of a return to Barcelona pop up every now and then, the finances of a deal have always been seen as a major problem.
The Brazilian has 70 goals and 41 assists in 84 appearances for the club so far, and won the French league the three times he featured in it.
Now with a Champions League final to be played on Sunday, Neymar has the chance to prove the transfer to PSG was completely worth it.
