French President, Emmanuel Macron on Thursday described Brazilian superstar Neymar’s expected transfer to Paris Saint-Germain as “good news.”
“It adds attractiveness. Yes, it’s good news,” Macron told journalists as he visited a holiday centre for children outside Paris.
He also congratulated PSG’s chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who was attending the same event.
“Congratulations, I believe there has been good news,” he said.
He spoke shortly before La Liga refused to accept payment of Neymar’s 222 million euro ($260 million) buyout clause.
