PSG's Al-Khelaifi tires of Neymar to Real Madrid speculation
"We respect Real Madrid, their president, Florentino Pérez, but I think that it's important for everyone not to work behind the scenes," said the PSG chief.
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi hopes a conversation with Real Madrid can put an end to persistent speculation linking Neymar with a switch to Los Blancos.
The Brazil captain – who moved to PSG from Barcelona for a world-record €222million in 2017 – continues to be linked with the LaLiga giants despite insisting he is happy in France.
In July, Madrid rejected claims in the Spanish media they had made a €310million offer for the 26-year-old superstar, calling the reports "absolutely untrue".
The constant talk of Neymar returning to Spain has become a frustration for Al-Khelaifi, and is something he has discussed with Madrid president Florentino Pérez in an attempt to put the rumours to rest.
"We don't like it at all and we have spoken to Real Madrid," Al-Khelaifi said. "It's a bit frustrating, it's not fair that other clubs talk about our players.
"We have a good relationship and they respect PSG, and I hope that's the truth. We respect Real Madrid, their president, Florentino Pérez, but I think that it's important for everyone not to work behind the scenes.
"I don't know if he understands me. If there is something, we speak, speak with Florentino Pérez or whatever it is and we speak about what we like and what we don't like.
"It's what we want with all clubs, not just Real Madrid. Fighting amongst each other is not the way PSG works and I hope other clubs don't do that to us."
