- Neymar’s father has waved off reports linking his son with a switch away from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer
- Neymar has formed a deadly partnership with Kylian Mbappe since his arrival from Barca
- The Brazilian is currently recuperating from a toe injury
Neymar’s father has dismissed reports linking his son with an exit from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
The Mirror claims that Neymar Sr, who also doubles as his son’s representative insists he is presently working on extending the Selecao captain’s stay with the French champions.
Reacting to a question concerning his son’s link with Real Madrid and Barcelona during an interview on Brazil’s news channel UOL Esporte, Neymar Sr, revealed there is hardly any transfer season Neymar is not linked with a top club.
“People say: ‘Wow, Neymar is always being linkrom ed with a big club in every transfer window.'
“This means that he has good career management. He is always among the names (being linked). If it’s an important signing, Neymar is involved. Thank God! But this doesn’t mean he’s going to that club or another
“His name has been speculated on since he was 17, since he made his professional debut. Neymar has only had two transfers in his life, but we’ve had speculation for 10 years.
“The probability of him not leaving is very high. He is in the second year of his contract. So, he has three more years until the end of that contract, and we are now starting on a renewal with Paris Saint-Germain,” Neymar Sr noted even as he went down memory lane to recount his son’s experience during an assessment trip to Real Madrid. “We had been there for several days and in Spain they don’t have rice and beans. I said: 'Man, this is difficult.'
“And we didn't manage to eat many of the things they had there. The food in the hotel was always the same things: cured ham.
“Now we are used to that, but at the time we really missed rice and beans. Neymar seemed to be getting weaker, the guy wasn’t eating.”
However, Brazilian businessman Wagner Ribeiro took them to Robinho’s house in Madrid, who at that time was playing for the Los Blancos where they had enough rice and beans.
Neymar Sr noted he was “embarrassed” in Robinho’s house as they were so hungry, but “they felt happy” after eating.
Neymar Sr also disclosed that Robinho was one of his son's idols.
Neymar is due to stage a return to PSG starting line up from a foot injury in April
Earlier, Legit.ng reported Paris-Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has ruled out a return to Barcelona stressing that he is attracted to play for their bitter rivals Real Madrid.
Despite serious claims linking the Brazil international with a return to Camp Nou, Neymar made it clear that he has already fulfilled his dream of playing for the Catalans.
Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, Los Blancos' chiefs have been looking for another star to replace him at the Bernabeu.
Neymar is Real Madrid's main target this summer and his current club Paris-Saint-Germain are reportedly considering selling the Brazilian so as to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
