Neymar Jr who had an underwhelming FIFA World Cup with Brazil has now spoken about his club career and possible future moves. The PSG man has been linked to the Spanish club Real Madrid CF ever since he departed FC Barcelona.
Neymar Jr confirmed that even though the reports of him joining Madrid have always been in headlines of Spanish media, he will be continuing with his French club Paris Saint-Germain.
“I will continue in Paris. I have a contract and I came for a challenge, for new things, to achieve an objective. And it has not changed, I hope it is a successful season.”
With the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Juventus the Los Blancos have been looking to replace their all-time highest goalscorer with another galactico signing. Spanish news outlets claimed that Neymar Jr is the blue-eyed boy the Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has been looking to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with but the club has denied their interest in the player as of now.
It is often considered that Neymar Jr left Barcelona to go to a team where he will be the main man and now with Real Madrid having a vacancy for such a position it has fueled the fire of rumors yet again.
Neymar Jr also showered praise on his PSG teammate and FIFA World Cup 2018 winner, Kylian Mbappe. The 19-year-old French forward has drawn some incredible comparisons with the likes of Ronaldo Nazario De Lima and Pele, who in the same age had achieved phenomenal feats.
“Mbappé is a phenomenon. The people who are with him on a daily basis already knew this for quite some time. I know the quality he has and I’m very happy, very happy because he was great in the World Cup. We talk a lot, almost every day.”
The duo would continue to put in mesmerizing performances for the Paris based club for the next season as of now. Both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr have been linked with Real Madrid in the recent days but the move is unlikely as all the parties have denied the rumors.
