Barcelona star Neymar will not leave the club this summer, according to his teammate Gerard Pique.
Neymar has been the subject of intense speculation linking him with a move to Paris Saint-Germain for a mind-blowing €220m, with some outlets claiming he has even agreed a deal with the French club.
Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu has insisted that the Brazil forward is not for sale, but the reports of a move have persisted.
Now Spain centre-back Pique, one of the most influential figures at Camp Nou, has weighed in on the situation.
“Se queda,” Pique tweeted on Sunday night with a picture of himself posing with a smiling Neymar. Se queda is Spanish for “He stays”.
Neymar, 25, has been one of Barcelona’s best players since joining them in 2013, forming the potent ‘MSN’ forward line with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
The Brazilian shrugged off the speculation on Saturday night to score two stunning goals as Barcelona defeated Juventus 2-1 in a pre-season friendly in New Jersey, United States of America.
