The 25-year-old is reportedly a big target for Los Blancos despite only joining the Ligue 1 outfit from FC Barcelona last season.

PSG face Real in the Champions League next month, and Emery insists his side will not be sidetracked by transfer rumours.

"The group is strong with a great mentality. They were strong when it came to both games in the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, and they remain like this in their preparation for the game against Real Madrid," he told a news conference.

"The players are smart and the club have gained experience. I also have experience and I know that people from outside can disrupt us... some people who may have some interest in doing so.

"For example, if you read today the first sport newspaper in Spain, the cover is that Neymar is going to Real Madrid. These things don't shake us.

"The players, the staff, the coach, the technical staff. We know our way, our path. We know who from outside... we know who wants destabilise us but we are strong, whatever has been told outside or what happens inside.

"We are protecting ourselves well. It's true that some little things happened after the holidays, but it's only 10 per cent [of the club].

"We'll come back soon to normality."
