Neymar to Madrid speculation frustrates me – PSG´s Al-Khelaifi


Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed how constant speculation about Brazil captain Neymar to Real Madrid is frustrating him.

The star moved to PSG from Barcelona for a world-record €222million in 2017 but continues to be linked with the LaLiga giants despite insisting he is happy in France.

In July, Madrid rejected claims in the Spanish media they had made a €310million offer for the 26-year-old superstar, calling the reports “absolutely untrue”.

The constant talk of Neymar returning to Spain has however become a frustration for Al-Khelaifi.

“We don’t like it at all and we have spoken to Real Madrid,” Al-Khelaifi told Marca.

“It’s a bit frustrating, it’s not fair that other clubs talk about our players.

“We have a good relationship and they respect PSG, and I hope that’s the truth. We respect Real Madrid, their president, Florentino Perez, but I think that it’s important for everyone not to work behind the scenes.

“I don’t know if he understands me. If there is something, we speak, speak with Florentino Perez or whatever it is and we speak about what we like and what we don’t like.

“It’s what we want with all clubs, not just Real Madrid. Fighting amongst each other is not the way PSG works and I hope other clubs don’t do that to us.”
