MBAPPE REVEALS WHAT HE TOLD NEYMAR ABOUT BARCELONA MOVE
Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has finally weighed into the discussion on Neymar’s future amid serious speculation linking the Brazil international forward with a return to the Camp Nou. The highly-talented World Cup winner admitted that he has told his domestic teammate to stay in the French capital.
The former Barcelona star, Neymar is thought to be determined to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. However, it is proving difficult for him to achieve this feat because very few clubs in the world are capable of coughing up the fee that PSG paid for the Brazilian in the summer of 2017.
While Marco Veratti had declared his wish to see Neymar remain at the Parc des Princes, he admitted that PSG should not fight to keep a player that did not want to remain at the club.
According to Marca, Mbappe has now weighed into the hottest topic in the ongoing summer transfer window and he revealed that he had spoken to Neymar about remaining in the French capital.
“I have talked to him with honesty and respect, I told him to stay with us,” Mbappe explained. “He knows what I think of his situation. I respect and admire him.”
German tactician Thomas Tuchel has found himself in a tough situation as he is in the process of preparing his team for the 2019/20 season whilst not knowing if one of his best players will still be there, yet the former Borussia Dortmund coach is happy with the former Barcelona star’s training efforts.
“Neymar is with us and we’re waiting for him to play in the first league game,” Tuchel declared. “He loves football and when he is on the pitch, he gives his best. In today’s training sessions I’ve seen him work very well and play to his best.”
In the summer of 2017, PSG made an official bid for Neymar who was signed to Barcelona at the time. The Catalan giants announced that the player’s legal representatives made a payment of €222 million to the club, equal to the release clause of his contract, which constituted the most expensive transfer ever.
Although Neymar’s time in France has been heavily riddled with injuries and marked with controversies, he has won two league titles, a Coupe de France, and a Coupe de la Ligue. He was instrumental in a domestic treble and was voted Ligue 1 Player of the Year, in his debut season.
