Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has opened up on the speculation surrounding his future, claiming that the links with Real Madrid and Barcelona are “not concrete”, while dismissing such stories.
The 26-year-old who moved to France in 2017 after PSG paid Barcelona a world record transfer fee of €222 million, has been repeatedly linked with a move to back to Spain, after it was claimed that the Brazilian is not happy with life and the project of the club in the French capital.
The Los Blancos were understood to be the favourites to land the striker last summer, but things eventually cooled off, while recent reports have emerged that the Brazilian is keen to return back to the Nou Camp and that his father had been in touch with the club hierarchy over a potential transfer.
“There is always speculation about me. Ever since I became a professional footballer, there has always been speculation that I would quit other clubs. But there is nothing concrete. As soon as there is something definitive, be reassured, I will tell everyone,” Neymar said as quoted by foxsportsasia.
Despite his reported unhappiness, Neymar has been a hit on the pitch for PSG, netting 48 goals in just 52 appearances while helping the club win the domestic treble in his maiden season.
