Gerard Pique has encouraged Neymar to take his feelings to leave Paris Saint Germain and join Barcelona public this summer.
Neymar has been reportedly very unhappy at PSG and wants a move back to Barcelona. However, his €222million world record move two seasons ago mean that PSG are not ready to let go of him easily. Both clubs however, have left no stones unturned in taking shots at each other throughout the summer and now Pique has weighed in by asking Neymar to openly revolt against PSG.
“I think the operation is very complicated. He is a PSG player,” he told a news conference on Tuesday. “I would be delighted to have him here, although it has to be Neymar who manifests. Of course we talk to him, but it is not appropriate to discuss private conversations. It is he who has to go out to talk. He is a star on and off the field.”
Speaking of their new signing Griezmann, Pique said he has been greatly impressed by the French forward. “Griezmann is a great player and it’s good to have him with us,” the centre-back said. “We hope he adapts well and can help us win games.”
