After reports of talks between Barcelona and Neymar’s representatives, PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has dismissed the speculation.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move back to the Nou Camp for almost a year.

That talk intensified thanks to reports in Spain – but Tuchel has now poured cold water over the links.

The superstar left the Catalan giants in 2017, joining Paris Saint-Germain for £200 million.

Tuchel says no talks are happening and paid tribute to the plauer who he says wants to take the club forward.

“I think Neymar feels really happy, he’s professional,” said the coach

“I think he feels good here, both in the dressing room and on the pitch, he is disciplined, he does a lot of things on the pitch.

“You have seen his statistics and what he does in training.”

His future has been clouded amid suggestions he is unhappy in the uncompetitive French League and craves to return to La Liga.

Real Madrid , continuing to eye a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo , were interested last summer but have since turned much of their attention to Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

However Barcelona – despite Neymar leaving under something of a cloud – have made moves in recent months to see if the player is interested in a potential return.
