PSG boss Unai Emery speaks out on possible transfer “Neymar to Real Madrid”

Reports have suggested the Brazilian could swap Paris for Real Madrid if he doesn’t achieve Champions League success or win the Ballon d’Or at his new club.

But after smashing the world transfer record PSG manager Emery says PSG have no intention of letting Neymar leave.

He said: “When we took him (from Barcelona) it was with one precise goal, the club and the president want him to stay and he’s going to stay here.”

Emery has also revealed he has spoken to Neymar about the transfer rumours.

He explained: “All footballers are men before being footballers. I speak to Neymar, and it’s that which is more important than rumours.

“Adapting is different for each player and more or less quick. We’re doing everything to help him to adapt as well as possible.

“But the most important thing is the pitch and his performances there.”

Neymar has been in sensational form since making the move from Barcelona to PSG, netting 11 times and providing nine assists so far this season.

Spanish media widely reported that Neymar told former Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique he regretted leaving the Nou Camp during the international break.

And Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos told radio station Cadena Ser that Neymar would be welcome at the Bernabeu if he wanted to leave Paris.

PSG return to action this Saturday when they welcome Nantes in Ligue 1.
