Paris Saint-Germain star Marquinhos has urged Neymar to stay at the club, but admits it will be hard to keep hold. Neymar has made it clear he made a mistake in leaving Barcelona for PSG and has been pandering for a return to La Liga ever since, with Barca and Real Madrid both keen.
Brazil team-mate Marquinhos is keeping his fingers crossed that Neymar stays but admits it will be difficult to convince him to stay if Barca come calling. “It’s difficult to recruit a player like him into your club and it’s hard to keep him, but I hope he’ll continue with us,” Marquinhos said.
“He is an important player, he’s also a friend, a guy I love, and I really hope he’ll stay. “We have not talked about his future, I guess there are already a lot of people who only talk to him about it.” Barcelona appear to be in the box seat to take him back but there is a long way to go before a deal can be hammered out with PSG, as it appears to be complicated to say the least.
