Paris Saint Germain forward Neymar has said he is tired of hearing his name in the press, despite links to Real Madrid and Manchester United.
The 26-year-old Brazilian has missed the end of the Ligue 1 side’s title winning season due to injury, but his presence in media in France, Spain and England has been very much felt.
Having arrived at the Parc des Princes last summer in a shock move from Barcelona, Neymar has adapted well on the pitch, but a poor relationship with Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and the club’s fans – has seen him linked with a move back to Spain.
Whilst many would expect him to be return to the Camp Nou – it has not been Barca who have been linked though; instead, Real Madrid have been the team keen on signing the Brazilian international.
A move to the Santiago Bernabeu would be as sensational as his record breaking transfer from Barca to PSG, but Manchester United are also said to be keen.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said on Saturday he was “2000 per cent” sure that the former Santos forward would be at the club next season, but speculation continues to grow.
Fed up of transfer talk….
Neymar himself has been largely quiet on such talk, but he chose to address the links when being named Ligue 1 Player of the Season at the weekend.
“Everyone knows what I have come here to do, the goals I have,” he said when accepting his award.
“My goal now is the World Cup. It is not time to talk about transfers.
“I am a little tired of it now.”
Neymar scored 28 goals in 30 games for PSG before his season was ended prematurely by a serious foot injury in February and he is expected to recover in time for the World Cup in Russia next month.
