Wagner Ribeiro, historical agent of Neymar, has spoken about the future of his former player and believes that he can not leave Paris.
He is the one who discovered Neymar at the age of 12. Former agent of the Parisian striker, Wagner Ribeiro always follows closely the news of his former client and spoke this Sunday in the columns of the Team about the arrival of the Brazilian in France and believes that his future is at Paris Saint-Germain.
“He lives in a beautiful city, he has a lot of friends and he is very happy in Paris. No club in the world can offer what PSG offers it, he explained. Only PSG can afford Neymar, assures Wagner Ribeiro. Real Madrid have financial problems. Barça? It’s even worse. In Italy ? No club can compete. Manchester United or Manchester City? I do not believe it “.
Neymar could have gone to Real Madrid
The 62-year-old Brazilian agent also said he tried to convince Neymar to sign for Real Madrid rather than Barcelona in 2013 and ensures that contacts with Parisian leaders began in 2015. According to him, the arrival of Ney at PSG was the right choice. “His problem is the injuries. He is the target of defenders in every game. They have to nab him otherwise he makes the difference (…) He plays in a very good team. This season, they will win the Champions League, and Neymar will be Ballon d’Or, you will see ”.
Finally, Wagner Ribeiro assures that in 2019, Neymar could have signed to Real Madrid who “was ready to pay € 300m to recruit him” but Nasser al-Khelaïfi explained to the leadership of the Merengues that it would be impossible, “even for 1 billion”.
