Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta holds talks with Neymar has reportedly urged Neymar to ignore PSG interest and remain Camp Nou.
Iniesta according to The Independent says he would rather have Neymar at the club than a massive transfer fee, with speculations linking the 2016 Rio Olympic gold medalist to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in a world record deal.

“He is one of the best players in the world and I always want the best players in my team. I have no doubt that we all wish him to continue with us.
“We would like you (the press) to not keep asking (about Neymar) so much, but to end this, there is only one way: Neymar will speak.”
Iniesta told a news conference ahead of the Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Real Madrid PSG have reportedly held discussions with Barcelona about a transfer for the 25 year-old that would smashthe world record 89 million pounds ($116.88 million) Manchester United paid for France midfielder Paul Pogba last year.
