STOP FORCING NEYMAR TO STAY - VERRATTI TOLD PSG

Paris Saint-Germain should not keep Neymar if he wants to leave the club, says team-mate Marco Verratti. The Brazil superstar has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, two years after he joined PSG in a €222million deal, with sporting director Leonardo confirming Neymar wants to leave.

Marco Verratti does not believe it would be in Paris Saint-Germain's best interests to deny Neymar a return to Barcelona. Barca have reportedly offered €100m and two of Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Nelson Semedo, Ivan Rakitic and Malcom in exchange. And Verratti – who came close to joining Barca two years ago – thinks it would be detrimental to PSG if they were to deny Neymar a move.

 

"I think that if a player wants to leave, in the end he will always find a way to go" he told RMC Sport.

"And it's better like that, otherwise the club will keep someone who does not want [to be there, who will be against the club."

"When a player really wants to leave, the club must let him go, depending on the conditions set by the club, of course. But do not hold back a player who wants to leave."
