Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has told Paris Saint-Germain that they have to hold onto Neymar.

Neymar, 27, is heavily linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 champions this close season, with a return to Barcelona mooted just two years after his €222million switch.

“It’s embarrassing for Ligue 1 if at one point the TV rights bidding was done with visibility that included Neymar,” he told Le Parisien on Wednesday.

“He was before at Barca. With a very big cheque, he arrived in Paris. I think PSG have to do what it takes to keep him.

“But as president of OL, I am in a bad position to judge.”
