More Neymar Senior: "People say & # 39; Neymar is in every transfer rumor that relates to a big club in every window. & # 39; This reflects that his career is well managed – it is always one of the (important) names However, this does not mean that he will join this club or that club. "
For SUCH AS, He added:
"We are happy with Neymar's career so far, he cannot end his career feeling unhappy, having done what others think he should do and not doing what he thought he should do. Neymar is Neymar.
"My job as an agent is planning for him. Neymar didn't have time to study to become a doctor, lawyer or journalist. And he's a footballer. Our challenge is to make a career plan for him so when he stops playing he can have peace by living his life ".
Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for a record € 222 million after four successful years at Camp Nou:

He reimbursed the Ligue 1 team with 48 goals and 27 assists in his 53 appearances for the team, although he has yet to help them realize their ambition to win the UEFA Champions League.
Last season, a broken metatarsal kept him out of the second part of their last 16 with real Madrid. Without him, PSG failed to overcome the 3-1 of the first leg.
This season, a recurrence of the same injury meant that he lost both legs of their Manchester United fight in the same stadium, and looked from the sidelines as they threw away a two-goal lead from the first leg.
The continuing struggles of PSG in Europe have sparked further speculation about Neymar's future.
Real Madrid is often connected with the 27-year-old, and Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has openly flirted with the idea of signing him and team-mate Kylian Mbappe, for Dermot Corrigan of ESPN FC:
The fact that Neymar still has a lot of time available for his contract at the Parc des Princes puts the PSG in a position of strength, however, so that he can request an astronomical tax or refuse in no uncertain terms to recommend any approach made for him.
A renewal would cement it further, assuring him to keep it for the rest of his peak years.
