Neymar will become world’s best player – PSG boss Unai Emery

The Brazil international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Neymar will become the best player in the world at Paris St Germain, boss Unai Emery has said.

The 25-year-old, who is the most expensive player in history, only joined the Ligue 1 side in the summer but has been linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season

Madrid are said to be planning a major recruitment drive and want to make the Brazilian their number one signing.

But Emery insists Neymar’s future remains at Parc des Princes.

“Neymar will become the best player in the world and he will be here at Paris St Germain, I am sure,” he said at a press conference previewing the game with Montpellier.

Emery has also described Dani Alves’ three-match suspension as unfair.

The right-back has been sanctioned after his red card for squaring up to referee Clement Turpin in Sunday’s Ligue 1 defeat to Lyon.

“Dani Alves has a winning mentality and brings a lot of character to this team. I find his sanction of three unjustified suspension matches.

“After, we have confidence in Thomas Meunier. He had a great progression last season, he also evolves a lot this season alongside Dani Alves.

“Competition is good at this position. “
