Brazilian Gremio striker Luis Suarez, who previously played for Barcelona, spoke about Neymar's departure from the Catalan club to PSG, saying that the Brazilian had told his Spanish teammates that he would remain. Still, the family player made the decision to move to the Parisian camp.
"I don't like to talk about it, but when the moment had already come, we went together and spoke to him: "Ney, if you want to win, stay here with us.
He listened to us and said, "Yes. Yes, I want to stay." And then something happened that was hard to control. We, as friends, recommended that he stay, but his family decided. We said: "Neymar, in England, you will be better. Manchester City plays good football. But France? — quotes the words of Suarez Placar.
Neymar left Barcelona in 2017. His move to PSG was the most expensive transfer in football history. The French club paid €222 million for the player.
