Pique Thinks Neymar Will Stay At Barcelona
Barcelona forward Neymar will stay at the club – or at least that is the “intuition” of his team-mate Gerard Pique.
Paris St-Germain have reportedly met the Brazilian’s 222m euro (£199m) release clause.
“From the conversations that I had with him, it’s just my intuition that he’ll stay – other than that obviously I hope that he stays,” said Pique.
Neymar scored twice in Barcelona’s 2-1 friendly win over Juventus on Saturday.
After the win, Barca coach Ernesto Valverde reiterated his desire to keep Neymar at the club.
Pique then posted a picture of him and Neymar on Twitter, with the caption ‘Se queda’ (‘He stays’), but has since downplayed the post.
“We were in a relaxed atmosphere with other team-mates when we took that photo, and that’s how that went. But in no way was that anything official.
“Firstly it’s really not my business, and the person who has to decide that is Neymar.”
