Ex-Barca President: PSG Taking Revenge With Neymar Interest
Joan Gaspart: Paris Saint-Germain Taking Revenge With Neymar Interest
Former FC Barcelona president Joan Gaspart has insisted that Paris Saint-Germain are taking revenge against the Catalan club with their pursuit of superstar Neymar.
According to recent reports, PSG are attempting to lure the Brazilian to France, a week after the Catalan club were told they would not be able to sign Italian midfielder Marco Verratti from Les Parisiens.
Former Blaugrana president Gaspart believes the French giants are trying to deter Barca from their player by distracting media and the Spanish club with their interest in Neymar.
"Neymar won't leave Barca," he told Daily Mail.
"What's happening is that PSG are retaliating because they're annoyed by a move to sign their player (Verratti). They're trying to make a mess of Neymar's situation.
"I hope that Neymar clears up that he's not going soon. (I hope he) says that he's delighted to be at Barcelona and that the rumours have no foundations."
Neymar has played 186 matches for Barca since joining the club in 2013, scoring 105 goals and assisting a further 80 strikes.
