Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi confirms he is ‘annoyed’ at the constant speculation where forward Neymar is being linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The Qatari added that the Parisian club still has a ‘good relationship’ with Neymar and won’t tolerate any work ‘being done behind the scenes’.

“It is not a favourable situation and we have spoken about it to Madrid,” Al-Khelaifi told an interview with Marca, published on Friday.

“No club should be talking about our players or vice versa, it gives the image that there is work being done behind the scenes and that is annoying.

“We respect Real Madrid and its president, Florentino Perez, while we also hope that they share the same feelings for us, it’s a good relationship.

“This is the understanding we want with all clubs, not only Madrid, because it is important to have dialogue surrounding issues and not use underhand tactics.

“La Liga president Javier Tebas? I have told him that when talking about people, it is better to say it to their faces rather than behind their backs.

“He should worry about his own problems rather than a club which does not concern his jurisdiction.”
