Transfer: Gerard Pique blocks Neymar’s transfer
Barcelona ace, Gerard Pique has reportedly blocked Neymar’s move to Real Madrid, reports Fox Sports.
There have been speculations surrounding the Brazilian international and whether he will remain a Paris Saint-Germain player or re-join his former club.
Real Madrid are very interested in signing Neymar from PSG, thereby denying Barca the opportunity to take back their former star.
However, the newspaper reports that Pique has been on hand to block the player from moving to Santiago Bernabeu.
The Spaniard had earlier revealed that he has been in discussion with Neymar and that he knows the club are working “very hard” to get him.
Alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar formed one of the most fearsome attacks of all time.
Given Pique’s love for Barcelona and hatred for Real Madrid, there is nothing he would despise more than seeing Neymar sign for Los Blancos.
