Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has reassured fans of the team and said that Kylian Mbappe and Neymar will not leave the club during the summer transfer window.
“Nothing indicates that Neymar and Mbappe will leave PSG. Under the contract, they will be linked with the club for another two years, and our goal is to extend this cooperation. Mbappe is the future of our team. It will be good for him if he extends the contract.
I think Kylian is in the top 5 of the best players in the world. The same can be said for Neymar. Messi and Ronaldo are veterans, and then we have the best players in the world. This is a grand advantage. There is no longer any talk of Neymar returning to Barcelona. He is happy in Paris” – said Leonardo.
Mbappe has been playing in PSG since 2017. During this period, he has played 76 matches for the Parisian team and scored 64 goals. No less impressive are Neymar’s statistics: 52 appearances and 47 goals. However, Neymar missed many due to injuries.
Neymar is already in Paris!
After a three-month hiatus, Neymar returned to France. PSG will start preparing for the Champions League in a week.
Paris Saint-Germain will start training in a week, and Neymar is already in the French capital! The Brazilian superstar returned to Paris a week earlier than planned, which is a surprise for many – usually, on the contrary, he is often too late.
According to the newspaper L’Equipe, Neymar returned to Paris prematurely because of the quarantine. The 28-year-old Brazilian landed in the French capital on Saturday on his own plane.
The Brazilian will start training with his teammates on June 22. The Parisians start preparing for the renewal of the Champions League. According to the officially unconfirmed information, the Champions League should continue with a one-match playoff from the quarterfinals, and all the games should be held in one city. The UEFA Executive Committee will most likely approve the idea on June 17. The rest of the Champions League matches are scheduled for August.
Neymar left France at the beginning of the Corona pandemic in mid-March and has been training individually at his luxury villa ever since. At the end of April, the French championship was finished prematurely, and Paris Saint-Germain became the champion.
