Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has silenced rumours that Neymar is unhappy at the Parc des Princes, claiming that the player has no intention of leaving.

The Spaniard answered questions regarding the Brazilian star's possible departure after speculation that he was unhappy in France emerged last week.  

Neymar reportedly confessed to former Barcelona teammates Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique that he regrets choosing to leave the Blaugrana, while he even attempted to break the deal in its latter stages in a conversation with the club's president.

Theories that he wished to depart from Paris were further fueled by Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who claimed that Neymar would be welcome at the Bernabeu if he ever wanted.

But manager Emery has put an end to these talks by saying at PSG's weekly press conference (via Sky Sports): "When we took him (from Barcelona) it was with one precise goal. The club and the president want him to stay and he's going to stay here."

The Brazilian arrived during the summer on a world-record £200m deal from Barcelona and joined a starred squad that includes Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti.

He has so far proved to be worth the money, as he scored seven goals and provided five assists in the first eight Ligue 1 matches and vividly contributed to his club's four-point lead over Monaco.

In an interview with French media outlet with L'Equipe, the PSG manager further added: "The most important thing is the pitch and his performances there. All footballers are men before being footballers. I speak to Neymar, and it's that which is more important than rumours.

"Adapting is different for each player and more or less quick. We're doing everything to help him to adapt as well as possible."
