Ligue 1: PSG director clears air on Neymar’s rumoured departure
Paris Saint-Germain football advisor, Luis Campos, has insisted the club never planned to sell Neymar during the summer transfer window.
Many football fans were led to believe that the Messi-Mbappe-Neymar trio at PSG was going to be disbanded during the summer.
Neymar especially was widely expected to leave the Ligue 1 champions.
But when asked whether the Brazil superstar was ever on the way out, Campos said: “No. I even heard that Kylian had demanded that we take Neymar out. No. We count on all three. Last year, Kylian was the best player in the world. Messi was adapting, Neymar was injured and Kylian held the team together. He is a huge player.
“But Neymar is a very good player, there is no doubt about that. And above all, everything I heard before about him, I must’ve listened wrong because he always arrives on time. I see a Neymar involved in the team project, in the club project.”
