PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has taken aim at Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, saying perceived attempts to unsettle Neymar have only managed to serve another purpose: unsettling Cristiano Ronaldo.
Portuguese chief Henrique has opened up a potential war of words between the two big-spenders, who face off in the Champions League last 16.
Brazilian superstar Neymar only joined PSG for a world record transfer fee (£200million) in the summer, but has already been linked with a return to Spain amid suggestions of problems settling into life in the French capital.
Neymar had a very public falling out with Edinson Cavani earlier in the season, while reports continue that he doesn’t see eye-to-eye with coach Unai Emery – despite playing a direct hand in 30 goals (17 goals, 13 assists) in just 19 matches.
Neymar snapped at reporters when asked about interest from Madrid after a 7-1 win over Celtic in the Champions League, declaring: “For f*** sake, have you got nothing else to talk about?”
