As a result, Neymar made it clear that he himself is not at all pushing for a PSG exit or even thinking about doing so. He seems to be very happy with his role with the French side and wants to continue playing with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe next season.

Chelsea and Manchester City Links Invalid

Neymar was recently heavily linked to a possible move to the Premier League. Chelsea were touted with a potential move for the 30-year-old forward and were even offered the chance to sign him. The links were mostly due to Thomas Tuchel having worked with the Brazilian during his time in Paris, but even he wasn’t too convinced on fully approving the move.

After that, it was also claimed (as per Le Parisien) that the winger was offered to reigning English champions Manchester City. However, Pep Guardiola was quick to rubbish such rumours and insist that he is not interested in bringing the PSG star to his club in the summer.
