The Brazilian was convinced to stay in Paris by Thomas Tuchel.
• Newly appointed PSG manager Tomas Tuchel is ready to give Neymar the central role in his team
• Neymar trusts the German coach to improve the team and help him develop even further
According to AS, Neymar’s future is ‘clearer than ever’: he will stay at PSG. He was convinced by the talk he had with Thomas Tuchel. AS also adds that chances of the Brazilian joining Real Madrid this summer were close to zero anyway, with PSG not wanting to let go of their biggest star.
Neymar’s experience at PSG is very similar to that he had at Barca, where the first season was also very difficult for him as he struggled to adjust and was homesick. The same happening in Paris, as he doesn’t like the city and doesn’t have many friends in the squad either, while his integration in the team also has been a failure, despite Unai Emery’s best efforts.
However, after meeting Tuchel Neymar is more optimistic, as they ‘immediately connected’. The German told him about his vision of the future of the team and his role in it. Neymar liked what he heard and now is focused on the World Cup and the new season with PSG.
