Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser al-Khelaifi has visited injured superstar Neymar at his luxury home in Brazil amid rumours swirling about the striker’s intention to quit PSG.
The star’s father, Neymar Santos Sr, posted pictures of the meeting on Instagram. “Visit of the day at @neymarjr! Thanks @PSG,” he wrote.
In one picture, Neymar gives the thumb’s up, flanked by al-Khelaifi and his father. Another picture shows the club president with Antero Henrique, sports director at PSG, and Jean-Martial Ribes, the club spokesman.They also visited Neymar’s charity centre, the Neymar Junior Institute, in Praia Grande, Sao Paulo state.
The world’s most expensive player broke a bone in his right foot on February 25 and faces weeks of recuperation following surgery in early March. Unconfirmed media reports are swirling in Europe that Neymar has also grown disenchanted with PSG, who crashed out of the Champions League as the forward missed the second leg on March 6, and wants to return to Barcelona or even join rivals Real Madrid.
