Iniesta urges Neymar

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta said he would rather have Neymar at the club than a massive transfer fee, with speculations linking the Brazilian to Paris Saint-Germain in a world record deal.

PSG have reportedly held discussions with Barcelona about a transfer for the 25 year-old that would smash the world record Manchester United paid for France midfielder Paul Pogba last year.

“I do not think 200-300 million will be more beneficial for Barcelona than having Neymar,” Iniesta told a news conference ahead of the yesterday’s pre-season friendly against Real Madrid.

“He is one of the best players in the world and I always want the best players in my team.

“I have no doubt that we all wish him to continue with us.

“We would like you (the press) to not keep asking (about Neymar) so much, but to end this, there is only one way: Neymar will speak.”
