The club president was continuously asked by the press about Neymar’s future at Parc des Princes, but Al Khelaifi played down all suggestions.
“He’s going to stay here 2000 percent,” Al Khelaifi said.
“The Spanish media speak and have spoken since October saying Neymar is not happy. It’s false and I will not respond to rumours.”
“He has a contract and he’s going to stay, and he can’t be responding to everything that comes out in the media either. I’m sure he’s going to stay, he wants to stay.”
Neymar moved to French champions last summer from Barcelona on world record transfer of €222m – equal to the release clause of his contract.
