Neymar stays! Barcelona superstar set to reject £197m move to PSG
Neymar will reject a stunning move to Paris Saint-Germain and stay at Barcelona.
That is according to his teammate Gerard Pique who posted a picture of their pair on Twitter on Sunday night with the caption, “stays”.
Reports in Spain and France had suggested that Neymar was ready to join the Paris giants in a world-record £197million move.
But Pique’s intervention suggests he will remain at the Nou Camp.
Neymar scored twice in his side’s 2-1 win over Juventus on Saturday night and is understood to have held talks with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi about his future.
The pair appear to have convinced the 25-year-old that he can fulfil his ambitions in Catalonia.
PSG could now renew their efforts to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
But the Chilean has told PSG they will have to pay him £500,000 a week, the same kind of basic salary that Messi earns at Barcelona if he is going to leave England.
Arsenal insist that Sanchez is not for sale at any price – despite the fact he has less than 12 months left on his current deal.
And they would rather not hand their star player to another Premier League club – even for £50million.
PSG are prepared to pay £40million – hoping that Arsenal will reluctantly sell Sanchez abroad.
