Real Madrid Transfer News: Neymar responds to links over move to Bernabeu

Paris-Saint Germain (PSG) superstar Neymar has quashed all rumours regarding him looking for the exit doors at Paris. The Brazilian has further claimed that he knows that he will always be linked with transfer speculations owing to his “star quality”.

Neymar moved to the Parc de Princes in the summer after the Ligue 1 leaders activated his release clause of 222m Euros (£200m) to make his move the most expensive transfer in footballing history.

Speaking after his side's comprehensive 4-0 victory over Montpellier, via SPORTV, the PSG number 10 cleared the air regarding his future at the club after being constantly being named in the transfer mills over an alleged transfer to Real Madrid. Speaking on the subject, the former Barcelona ace said:

'There was no such thing a suggestion of leaving PSG. I'm happy here with my teammates, with the games. I have good games, number of goals too. That's what I came here for, to make history, to seek my best.

'Speculation will always exist. In my years in Barcelona it was the same. Every year in the transfer window there was something with my name. It is impossible to stay out of it. And I'm happy, because it means I'm okay, on the rise. And quality players are always speculated, it's not just me in the world of football, but nowadays we only talk about me. What can I do?'

Neymar saw his side go 11 points clear at the top over the weekend as he scored to twice to lead PSG to yet another comfortable victory.

The game was also memorable for their star forward Edinson Cavani – who overtook Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club’s all-time record goalscorer. The Uruguayan now has 157 goals to his name in his five seasons at the French capital.

Neymar, himself has been brilliant form in his first season in the country. The 25-year-old has currently 17 goals and 11 assists in 16 league games – proving to be worth the investment that owners made on him.

The mega-rich club are also through to the first knock-out round of the Champions League, and will face Real Madrid in a tantalising last 16 tie in February and March.
