Paris Saint Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted to losing sleep over Neymar’s proposed transfer away from the club.
Neymar has been tipped to leave the French Champions this season after falling out with the club. He has reportedly made it clear he wants a return to Spain, Barcelona in particular. However, PSG are not going to be easy to negotiate with for their record signing with their coach going on to admit that he would hate to lose his star man just in the beginning of the season.
Speaking before the match for the Ligue 1 defending champions first match in the league, Tuchel told the Canal Football Show: “I have no news of his future. He is with us. He was very decisive for us.
“If we lose Neymar, I will not sleep, perhaps. Because he’s hard to lose and [it is hard to] find another guy doing the same things for us. Maybe no news is good news.
“It’s hard not to know. Because I want him with us. But we have to find solutions without him too.
“I try to convince him to stay. But on the other hand, it’s a personal choice. It’s between him and the club.”
