Neymar’s father has dismissed reports linking his son with an exit from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
The Mirror claims that Neymar Sr, who also doubles as his son’s representative insists he is presently working on extending the Selecao captain’s stay with the French champions, and the odds are good according to sources at Betting News.
Reacting to a question concerning his son’s link with Real Madrid and Barcelona during an interview on Brazil’s news channel UOL Esporte, Neymar Sr, revealed there is hardly any transfer season Neymar is not linked with a top club.
“This means that he has good career management. He is always among the names (being linked). If it’s an important signing, Neymar is involved. Thank God! But this doesn’t mean he’s going to that club or another
His name has been speculated on since he was 17, since he made his professional debut. Neymar has only had two transfers in his life, but we’ve had speculation for 10 years.
“The probability of him not leaving is very high. He is in the second year of his contract. So, he has three more years until the end of that contract, and we are now starting on a renewal with Paris Saint-Germain,” Neymar Sr noted even as he went down memory lane to recount his son’s experience during an assessment trip to Real Madrid. “We had been there for several days and in Spain they don’t have rice and beans. I said: ‘Man, this is difficult.’
“And we didn’t manage to eat many of the things they had there. The food in the hotel was always the same things: cured ham.
“Now we are used to that, but at the time we really missed rice and beans. Neymar seemed to be getting weaker, the guy wasn’t eating.”
However, Brazilian businessman Wagner Ribeiro took them to Robinho’s house in Madrid, who at that time was playing for the Los Blancos where they had enough rice and beans.
