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.”
