Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has claimed that Neymar did not want to return to FC Barcelona.
The Brazilian left the Blaugrana to join the Ligue 1 outfit in 2017 after his €222 million release clause was triggered.
There were a number of reports thereafter suggesting that Neymar was unhappy in the French capital and wanted a return to the Camp Nou, but PSG president Al-Khelaifi has insisted that was not the case.
"Barcelona always wanted to get Neymar back, it's no secret," he told L'Equipe.
"But did Neymar want to go? No.
"It's true that his adaption to Paris and France was still incomplete, but call him and he will tell you how happy and fulfilled he is today.
"As I said at the time, I don't want players to do us a favour by signing for PSG. I want players who are proud to defend our colours. The club is above any player, whoever they are. We want players who fight, who give everything they have, who want to stay here.
"I regularly read rumours like 'this player wants to leave' and wonder how such fake news can come out."
