Xavi: ‘I snubbed Man Utd move, Neymar told me why he left Barcelona’

Barcelona legend Xavi revealed why Neymar decided to leave Barcelona and join Psg last summer. The former Spain star talked to the BBC (via Marca) and revealed: “He [Neymar] told me that he wanted to change teams. I asked him why and he said he wasn’t happy at Barcelona. He preferred to leave the club and have a new experience in Europe with PSG.”
 
“I think with Neymar and Mbappe, PSG have a great chance of winning the Champions League”,  Xavi added.
 
The Spaniard has also revealed that Manchester United wanted to sign him but he preferred not to leave Barcelona: “On one occasion I spoke with United and Sir Alex Ferguson’s brother,” he admitted.

“The Red Devils tried to take me there, but I decided to stay. I was always thinking that Barcelona was my favourite club, I have them in my heart and it is the best club in the world.”
