Brazilian defender Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain shared thoughts of his on Neymar the Barcelona forward who may potentially move to play for the France club.
Silva first joined the Paris giants in 2012 from AC Milan. He has since enjoyed great success in not only Ligue 1 play in France, but in the Champions League.
Silva will begin the new campaign with Dani Alves a fellow Brazilian after the former defender with Barcelona followed by one campaign with Juventus recently moved to play for PSG.
The most recent rumor is that the considerable financial strength of PSG will bring Neymar to the French side before the new 2017-18 campaign begins.
When asked about PSG’s purported move to land Neymar, he said that he did not have any concrete information to share on the possible deal.
He did however said that Neymar playing for PSG would be very important for what he called the “PSG Project,”
Marquinhos another player at PSG commented about Neymar’s possible arrival saying if Neymar were to sign with PSG he is exceptional and would help the club tremendously.
However, he did deny reports that claim Neymar has already told other Brazilians playing for PSG that the transfer is done.
This isn’t the first time a link between Neymar and a summer move from Barcelona has surfaced. In fact, a number of reports have suggested that Manchester United had been set to sign the talented, mercurial forward.
However, Josep Bartomeu the president of Barcelona has said that Neymar will remain with the club as he is not on the market for a transfer.
Barcelona has seen Lionel Messi their superstar sign a new deal that will keep him at Camp Nou for the next five seasons. Luis Suarez will also return to anchor the front line with Messi.
However, it is unknown at this time, if Neymar will be back at Camp Nou for another campaign or if he in fact will be headed to the city of lights and showcase his talents in France at PSG.
The possible move by Neymar to France received renewed speculation after Neymar posted a photo of himself in deep thought.
The photo showed the Brazilian, who is just 25, lying on the pitch with his left hand supporting his chin. Over 1.5 million likes were given to the phone in less than 12 hours.
The rumor is he would sign a deal of €222 million or $256.7 million to move to Paris.
