Unai Emery Brushes aside Neymar’s Current Transfer Rumours

After months of rumour that he is wanted by Real Madrid in the summer, the forward is now said to want to rejoin former club Barcelona.

In the wake of the speculations, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi flew to South America to talk with Neymar, who is likely to miss the rest of the campaign with a foot injury.

Emery maintains that nothing has changed as regards the world's most-expensive player's future at the Parc des Princes. He told reporters at Tuesday's presser: “I've talked about [the Madrid rumours] for months & my opinion has not changed.

“The PSG project is very solid. The president went to Brazil to be with Neymar. For me, it is clear that the project is solid with a player like Neymar. I spoke with [sporting director] Antero [Henrique], they are in Brazil to visit Neymar after his operation.”

Barcelona pair Ivan Rakitic & Philippe Coutinho have both admitted this week that they’d like to see Neymar return to Camp Nou.
