Ander Herrera said Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are very happy at Paris Saint Germain. He said Paris Saint Germain is most likely to buy stars rather than sell them.
Mbappe and Neymar are two showstoppers in world football and they have always linked a move away from Paris Saint Germain. They are both heavily linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But Herrera said both star players are happy at Paris Saint Germain. PSG claimed a third consecutive Ligue 1 title after the cancellation of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Herrera told AS when asked who would be harder to retain if PSG had to sell one of the stars: “I don’t know, because I don’t know what they earn or the income they generate for the club, which is still a company.
“But I do know that both are key players for the team in the project and I see them very happy and involved with PSG.”
The transfer of Neymar from Barcelona to PSG with a record-breaking fee of €222 million in 2017 and Mbappe permanent move from Monaco the following year for €135m made PSG a firm favorite for League and the Uefa Champions League.
Herrera said the PSG were more accustomed to buying stars and bring them to Le Parc Des Princes rather than selling them.
He added “You have to take into account a fundamental aspect, and I have discussed it with Kylian, that PSG is not a club that sells its stars, on the contrary, it buys them,”
“It has enough economic muscle to support both of them.”
Neymar was very close to a move back to Barca in the previous season, but it’s expected for him to stay at the Parc des Princes due to the financial climate in the world currently because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
His former agent Wagner Ribeiro believes the clubs are financially struggling due to Coronavirus Pandemic and even the biggest clubs on the planet are not in a situation to finance big-money deals.
With that in mind, Ribeiro believes that agreement can’t be reached with Barcelona that takes Neymar away from his contract at PSG and back to Camp Nou.
He told Fox Sports: “I think Neymar will stay at PSG because the market is different.
“The economic world of football will change.”
PSG declared as a Ligue 1 winner after the season has been canceled – and the start of the new season will begin in mid-August.
