Neymar to stay at PSG as move to Barcelona is called off

Neymar to stay at PSG as move to Barcelona is called off”

Ever since the owner of the Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Nasser Al-Khelaifi had stated that he would not tolerate any kind of celebrity behaviour at PSG, it was being speculated that Neymar will make a move back to Spain.

"Se queda", Spanish for he's staying, read the L'Equipe headline on its front page with a photo of the Brazilian.

"Faced with the impossibility of completing his transfer to Barcelona, Neymar had informed his entourage he has chose to end the season at PSG", the daily said.

"Yes, Neymar can go", he said in the meeting according to the publication.

At Barcelona, Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 appearances before his transfer to PSG.

Speaking on Friday, PSG's sporting director Leonardo, said the club were still open to selling Neymar if Barca made an acceptable offer, but that none had arrived.

Barcelona and their arch rivals Real Madrid were both looking to acquire his services this summer but they fell short of PSG's asking price.

"The failure of his signing leaves numerous characters involved affected, with wounds that won't just be healed with a plaster".

AS, which is also based in Madrid, said a swoop for Neymar by Real Madrid could not be discounted.

The news was somewhat surprising after there was a reported breakthrough in negotiations last Thursday, and with the club said to have agreed on a potential deal with Ivan Rakitic and Jean-Clair Tobido going the other way plus the loan of Ousmane Dembele.

The Brazil global was searching for a route out of Paris this summer after struggling both on and off the pitch since his world-record £198million move to from Barcelona in 2017.

"Players at Barcelona, who remain his friends, already know that this is only a postponement".
