Neymar to stay at PSG: Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar will stay with the Ligue 1 giants despite Barcelona’s stated interest, according to his former agent.
“Neymar will remain at PSG because the competition is different”
Neymar, 28, was linked to a return to Barcelona, almost three years after he left for a world record of 222 million euros to join PSG.
Yet his former partner, Wagner Ribeiro, thinks international Brazil should stay at PSG due to the financial difficulties clubs face during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think Neymar will stay at PSG because the market is different,” he told Fox Sports on Tuesday. “The economic world of football will change.”
Real Madrid chief “told me that he had a dream to sign Neymar”
Neymar has also previously been linked to Barcelona’s fierce rivals Real Madrid.
Ribeiro confirmed Madrid had previously been interested in Neymar, thanks to president Florentino Pérez.
“I have been in Madrid several times because the objective of Florentino Pérez was to recruit Neymar,” he said. “Last year, in May, I was with him in his office. He told me that he had a dream to sign Neymar.”
