Neymar had some bad news for Barcelona presidential candidates who keep talking up a possible return to the Camp Nou if they win January’s election.

The Brazilian spoke about his future after helping Paris Saint-Germain into the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 5-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir.

“I am very happy here in Paris. I am very happy at the club, with my teammates.

“The idea of leaving does not cross my mind. We have to discuss. We have a very good relationship and see what will happen in the future.”

Neymar scored a hat-trick as PSG went through as group winners. They could face Barcelona in the knockout stages with the draw set to take place on Monday.

PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi also spoke to RMC and sounded confident Neymar and Kylian Mbappe would be staying in France.

“We have begun to talk with Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, the discussions will remain confidential but I am very confident. They both want to stay with us at PSG.”

Neymar’s hat-trick is the third he has scored in his career in the Champions League, while he’s also become the only player to reach 20 Champions League goals for two different teams.
