PSG confident of luring Neymar despite Barca urging Brazilian to stay

Paris Saint-Germain are growing confident of potential success in signing Neymar from FC Barcelona despite the club’s efforts to urge him to stay.

The Ligue 1 club have reportedly triggered the forward’s 222m euro release clause, although Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu telling numerous parties that the Brazilian international is not for sale.

However, should PSG comply financial fair play rules completely in their efforts to trigger Neymar’s release clause, Barca would have no way to block their purchase. Additionally, French newspaper Le Parisien also reported on Friday that he had told some of his Barça team-mates that he was joining his friends Thiago Silva, Dani Alves, Marquinhos and Lucas at the Parc des Princes.

Neymar himself did not speak to to reporters after a 2-1 friendly win over Juventus in New Jersey, but Barca coach Ernesto Valverde addressed the speculation by his desire to keep Neymar at Barcelona after the Brazilian scored a brace in the pre-season win.

“We want Neymar with us,” he said. “We know his value on the pitch and what he brings to the locker room.”

Aside from Valverde, outspoken Barca defender Gerard Pique tweeted a picture of him and Neymar suggesting that his teammate has decided to stay at Camp Nou, along with the simple message “Se queda”, which translates as “He stays”.
