PSG director: Neymar could leave for a suitable offer
- PSG sporting director Leonardo has opened up on Neymar.
- He says Neymar's desire to leave PSG is 'clear for everyone'.
- The Brazilian may go if a suitable offer is made.
- Real Madrid were once interested in the striker.
The club's newly appointed sporting director Leonardo has just confirmed the Brazilian's intention to leave if a right offer arrives.
Leonardo speaks with French top source Le Parisien, as cited by English-speaking sources Get French Football News. That's what the PSG sporting director has to say on this heated topic:
"It [Neymar's desire to leave PSG] is clear for everyone. But in football, you can say one thing today and another thing the next… It is incredible but it is like that. The only thing that is concrete today is the following: he has another 3 years of contract with us. And as we have not received an offer, we cannot discuss anything."
"Neymar could leave PSG, if an offer is made that works for everyone. But as of today, we don’t know if anyone wants to buy him, nor for what price. All of that won’t be happening in a single day, that’s for sure."
"PSG wants to count on players who want to stay and build something great. We don’t need players who feel like they are doing the club a favour by staying."
Earlier, Real Madrid were linked with the Brazilain despite Florentino Perez's clear message there won't be any operations regarding Paris Saint-Germain players anytime soon. With enormous prices amounting to 300 million euros coming in it became even more apparent Los Blancos won't be making an effort to bring Neymar to the Bernabeu. Definitely not this summer, at the very least.
However, given the recent sales of several Madrid players and the obvious desire of the 27-year-old to change sides this summer, Blancos could still enter the fray.
