Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has clarified rumours about a possible transfer of Paris Saint Germain star, Neymar to Manchester City.
French outlet Le Parisien reported Neymar has been directly offered to Man City, but their head coach has come out to dismiss the claim as “false”.
“I am sorry for them because the information they have received is false. Neymar is an incredible player and by my information, he is a nice guy. Let him express himself at Paris, Guardiola said.
“Manchester City bought 150 players every summer, and it is not true. I am sorry for Neymar, of course.”
Neymar may not be heading to Manchester any time soon, but Guardiola is more than happy with his options after some early business in the market.
It is understood City were offered the Brazilian over recent weeks, but rejected the opportunity to sign him.
PSG were reportedly pushing to see Bernardo Silva included in a potential deal, however City refused to entertain the ambitious offer.
Neymar’s future has been called into question this summer, with new PSG sporting director Luis Campos was willing to offload the 30-year-old in the current window.
