Newly-unveiled Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier has sent out the strongest indication yet that he intends to keep Neymar at the club.

In recent weeks, the Brazilian has been subject to intense rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

PSG are said to have put Neymar up for sale as they look to revamp their squad ahead of next season. The club is looking to lay the framework to launch another attempt to win their first-ever Champions League title.

Reports indicate that Neymar was offered to clubs like Chelsea and Juventus that can pay his astronomical salary, but Galtier is of a different opinion.

Speaking after being appointed to take over from Mauricio Pochettino, Marca quoted the French tactician saying,

Neymar is a world-class player. What coach wouldn't want that player in their team?
Of course, you have to have a balance, but I'm clear on what I want from him, and I'm sure he'll stay with us. Because we want the best people here.

The former Nice and Lille head coach will be presented with the same difficult responsibility as all his predecessors of keeping the star-studded squad happy.

Neymar has a running contract until 2025 and is personally not interested in moving elsewhere.

Joelinton asks Neymar to join him at Newcastle United

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Newcastle United forward Joelinton had hilariously asked Neymar to consider joining him at Newcastle this summer.

The future of Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain remains uncertain, with reports suggesting that he has been asked to leave.

Should Neymar leave PSG, only a few clubs can afford his huge wages and one of those clubs is Newcastle. The Saudi takeover in October last year made it the richest club in world football.
