Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos has added his voice to those who have laughed off rumours that Neymar will move to Spain.
Neymar is in his second season at the Parc des Princes and has enjoyed an excellent start to proceedings, bagging eight goals in as many games.
However, rumours will not go away that the Brazil international is unhappy in the French capital and craves a return to Spain with either former club Barcelona or Real Madrid.
Club officials have continually played down the reports as nonsense and now Neymar’s compatriot has backed the forward to continue his career with PSG.
He said: “I wish Real Madrid and Barcelona good luck in their attempts to prise Neymar away. Everybody knows how [chairman and CEO] Nasser Al-Khelaifi is with his players and how he likes his most important players.
“I see no reason why Neymar would leave. He is good here, happy and people can see that when he is on the pitch.
Neymar himself has denied all of this via social media. I cannot speak for him, so ask him.”
