Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed that Real Madrid know that the Brazilian star will not be leaving the Parisians as the transfer window opens in July.

Neymar has been linked with a transfer away from the French capital ever since joining PSG in the summer of 2017, with a return to Barcelona as well as a move to their rivals Real Madrid the most gossiped.

During the last summer transfer window, as the rumours of a move to Madrid became more and more insistent, the Merengues club had released a statement denying they were pursuing the Brazilian winger.

The 27-year old is currently out with a metatarsal injury which will keep him out for some months and travelled to his home country in order to have his foot treated and start his recovery.

Paris Saint-Germain president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has shut down any rumours of Neymar joining the current European champions in the summer.

“Neither Real Madrid, nor any other club in the world, needs to call us about Neymar or any other player,” he said to Marca.

“Real Madrid know perfectly well that Neymar is not for sale and that the player won’t leave PSG this summer. We have a fantastic relationship with Neymar and his father and it is built to last a long time.”

The French club president did not appear worried about the prospect of losing both Neymar and Mbappe but instead spared some very good remarks especially on the talented French forward.

“They should be the ones that are worried because the best players in the world of tomorrow live in Paris, a city they love, and they play for PSG, Europe’s most modern club, which fits their ambition and their image,” Al-Khelaifi said.

“Kylian is already a club legend. What he has done at just 20 years of age, having won a World Cup and become one of the five best players in the world alongside Neymar, is exceptional.

“In Paris, everyone loves him, he is at home and he knows that he has everything he could want to make history at PSG. He has the ability to make the Parc des Princes dream and all of the young people who love the sport.

“The relationship between PSG and Mbappe is long-term because there is a very strong mutual trust.”
