While Neymar was unable to force a move away from Paris Saint-Germain in the latest transfer window, former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed why he is pleased to see the Brazilian superstar stay in Paris.

Neymar was strongly linked with a return to FC Barcelona in the window but a move failed to materialise, leaving the Brazil international to remain in Paris until at least January.

However, Wenger is pleased to see the 27-year-old remain at PSG and, in an interview with beIN SPORTS, gave his opinion that the reigning Ligue 1 champions would have lost other star players such as Kylian Mbappe if Neymar had left.

"I think that he is one of the best players in the world and I am happy that he is staying at PSG," Wenger said.

"Because when you lose one of your two or three best players in the world, the law in our world is that the following year you lose the other.

"It is very difficult to have players who make a difference, even when you have a lot of money. When you have them, you must keep them."
