PSG sporting director Luis Campos has commented on the rumours of Lionel Messi and Neymar potentially leaving the club this year.
“I asked Messi if he wanted to stay and I told him that I hope that he will stay here during my tenure here [3 years]. I’m very satisfied with Leo”, he told RMC.
However, Messi will not be making any decision on his future before the 2022 World Cup. Which means that we have no choice but to wait to learn about the next step of his career.
Luis Campos comments on PSG departures for Messi and Neymar
“Neymar was never close to leaving PSG. Rumours on Neymar this summer were completely fake – also, saying that Mbappé wanted Ney to be sold is another big fake news,” Luis Campos said of Neymar.
“Neymar is 100% part of our project,” he added.
This summer, the Brazilian was strongly linked with a departure. It was also rumoured that Mbappe wanted Neymar out of the club this summer, due to the power he now has. However, Campos has denied any such rumours, even though the relationship between Mbappe and Neymar isn’t as strong anymore.
Both South Americans have been in great form this season, and PSG are yet to face defeat in any competition that they are playing in.
