Verratti speaks on Neymar exit rumour

Meanwhile, in related news, Marco Verratti has told Radio Montecarlo that Brazilian teammate Neymar should be allowed to leave PSG if he wants to go.

Verratti added: “I would prefer Neymar to stay with us. I have never heard him say he wants to leave, but I don’t know what he tells the club.

Neymar has been continually speculated to be willing to leave France. Although, he already resumed training ahead of the new season.
