Dani Alves believes Neymar will remain at Paris Saint-Germain despite acknowledging that his compatriot needs to keep a more level head.


Neymar has constantly been linked with a move abroad, with Los Blancos a likely destination something Alves believes won’t materialise.

In a recent interview, Alves maintained his stance on Neymar’s future but admitted his compatriot must improve on some aspects of his game especially after his recent brawl with a fan.

“A dinner is not enough,” Alves responded to ESPN when asked if he would bet a dinner that Neymar will remain at the Parc des Princes.

“Should I bet the Eiffel Tower? I believe that he will stay with PSG.

“The 36-year-old noted that Neymar’s desire to win is becoming obsessive.

“He’s in a period of transition,” Alves added – The results aren’t coming and he’s becoming manic in how much he wants them to come.

“He has to take advantage of his free time to think about what he can do to make everything bigger, better, and to be in a better place.

“He’s not happy with the results, and unless they change he won’t be happy.”

The Parisiens will be aiming to go one better in the Champions League next season after a shocking home exit to Manchester United.
