Motta said: "I think he [Neymar] is the boss [of his destiny]. He is able to make his own decisions and impose them. I could be wrong, of course, but that's how I see it.

"For me, he will stay next season. We hear about Real Madrid, but what would he do there? Real has just won three Champions Leagues in a row.

"What would be the challenge for him? If he asks me for advice, I would tell him not to go there. The real challenge for Neymar is to win the Champions League with PSG.

"Neymar needs to be happy to be on the field. When all goes well, he smiles, dances puts on music and the three hours that we spend together in training run at one go.

"But sometimes I saw him arrive in the morning and I said to myself, 'oh, it's going to be difficult today'.

"This could be related to his personal life, to what he had eaten at breakfast. But what in another goes unnoticed, at home it is seen right away because everyone pays attention to him." He told Le Parisien
