Thiago Silva and Marquinhos Hope for Neymar PSG Stay
Paris Saint Germain captain Thiago Silva says he is hopeful his friend and compatriot Neymar Junior will stay at PSG amid rumours linking with him with a move away.
Reports have circulated about a possible swap deal between Coutinho and Neymar with Barcelona. Thiago hopes that Neymar stays in Paris.
“It's better not to say anything now, I hope he's happy in Paris or elsewhere," said to the defender to the French newspaper L'Équipe.
Brazilian and PSG teammate Marquinhos expressed similar sentiments, “It's difficult to recruit such a player in his club, but it's difficult to keep him, but I hope he stays with us.
“Besides an important player, he is also a friend, a guy I love. I really hope he stays.” Thiago Silva is however enthused by the arrival of Leonardo as PSG’s Sporting Director.
“Leo is serious, very professional, he's known the club for many years, I hope he can change things that did not work in the last few years to try to evolve.”
