Champions League: PSG coach reveals why Neymar didn’t leave

Intro

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel, has insisted that forward, Neymar, did everything possible to leave the club before the European transfer window closed.

PSG have retained the Brazil superstar despite strong speculation he would leave, two years after joining from Barca for a world-record €222million fee.

Neymar heavily linked with Barcelona and their LaLiga rivals Real Madrid, amid rumours the player offered up to €20million of his own money, to facilitate a transfer back to the Spanish champions.

There has long been speculation Neymar regretted his decision to leave Barca in 2017 and Tuchel has now confirmed it was a relief for Neymar even though it was against his wishes.
