The manager attempted to laugh off the speculations of the world best player joining them. The Argentina international has just five months left in his contract with the Spanish side. Despite Koeman’s anger, Paris Saint-Germain is still willing to hold formal discussions with the Argentina international.
Sporting director Leonardo has openly said that the French side has been monitoring the player even as he is at Camp Nou. In response to Leonardo’s recent comments, Ronald Koeman said he himself will like to work with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
According to the Dutchman, he said: “If you ask me if I’m interested in Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe, I’d say yes.” “I don’t know what will happen in the future; I can’t give an opinion on those. We try to have the best squad possible.”
Also in line to sign the player is Manchester City, they are also keeping a close eye on the player to land him to sign him on a free transfer.
