Neymar not happy: I would never sell him

Pushed to the exit by the Paris Saint-Germain, Lucas Moura chose to bounce on the side of Tottenham. A departure that does not appreciate Neymar. And the Brazilian has made it known.

Neymar a dit adieu à Lucas

He had no choice. Relegated to the status of luxury substitute by Unai Emery since last summer, Lucas Moura certainly played a few matches with Paris Saint-Germain, unlike Hatem Ben Arfa, but the Brazilian knew that his fate would be the same as the French .

Asked to pack up, the old Paulista had stayed and some even thought that his friendship with Neymar had played in his favor during the last summer transfer window. But this time Lucas had to leave Paris.

Party bounce on the side of Tottenham, the red-and-blue winger will leave a beautiful image of him at the Paris fans, even if a taste of unfinished will remain long in the mouths of the most nostalgic.

But at a time when most of his future ex-teammates have just wished him good luck at the end of the League Cup match won in Rennes (3-2), Neymar has signed a media release that is likely to to chat internally. Clearly, the number 10 PSG hardly appreciated the choice of his direction to sell his friend.

Neymar would never have sold Lucas
« As for Lucas, I’m sad, I’m losing a great teammate. It has been used very little here, and I think it is an injustice. He’s a friend, I want the best for him. I wish him good luck in his new club. I hope he’s going to score a lot of goals, he’ll play very well and he’ll come back to the national team because he’s not just a friend. With the qualities he has, he would have been very helpful to us. But I am not the owner of Paris. And if it was up to me, he would never have left. »

Words that will no doubt please a Lucas gone death in the soul. On the other hand, not sure that Unai Emery and his direction are on the same wavelength. Forced to sell its top players because of the financial fair play, the PSG will probably dare the statements of his star. Indeed, if the club of the capital must sell at all costs to avoid any sanction on the part of UEFA, it is largely because of the very heavy investment made for the arrival of … Neymar .
