Trouble in paradise? Neymar and PSG love affair on downward spiral

Jordi Alba 'a lot better' at Barcelona without Neymar; delighted by Valverde

Neymar, 25, has scored 11 times in 12 appearances for PSG this season, and has always been tipped to ultimately replace Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in the world.

Paris-Saint Germain midfielder Julian Draxler says he isn't interested in a return to Germany despite seeing his minutes dwindle this season.

As a result, Marca report on Saturday that Real Madrid have set aside 200 million euros to sign a player next summer.

Neymar's departure and the appointment of Ernesto Valverde as coach have both contributed to Jordi Alba re-finding his best form this season, the Barcelona defender has told Diario Sport.

"I am in mid-season with PSG now and I am focused on the high goals we have".

After Neymar had finished speaking, Brazil boss Tite also said a few words about his star man which caused him to visibly well up before thanking his manager with a hug and leaving the press conference early, with the current drama surrounding him clearly taking a toll.

Cesar has paid tribute to his fellow Brazilian, although the 38-year-old jokingly claimed that Neymar was only the top player in the world as Messi "is from another planet".

As one would expect, PSG denied these rumours when contacted for comment by Le Parisien, but they have already showed just how limitless their ambitions are with last summer's spending spree.

"He's a goalkeeper who is improving all the time", he added. I am just one more player in Paris, and the national squad. He's already a complete goalkeeper who is really strong coming off his line.

"I like Jan Oblak at Atletico Madrid; he's been excellent working with a team which does not concede many goals. I feel comfortable, I have a lot of energy and that's being shown on the pitch". He's older than me!
