(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Neymar’s agent has appeared to shut down rumours linking the Brazilian superstar with a return to Barcelona – claiming his client is likely to stay with PSG because of the impact of the coronavirus.
The forward joined the Ligue 1 outfit in 2017 for an eye-watering £200million from the Nou Camp after allegedly falling out with his teammates and seeking fresh scenery, but in recent years he has looked disillusioned with life in France.
Barcelona are said to be interested in reunited Neymar with the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, a trio which caused chaos for opposition teams when they played together, and have been linked with a big-money move to bring him back.
But Neymar’s representative Wagner Ribeiro said the recent pandemic has completely changed the make-up of the game financially, and believes the player will end up staying at the Parc des Princes as a result.
‘I think Neymar will stay at PSG because the market is difficult,’ he said.
‘The economic world of football will change.’
