Ribiero also said that there is no chance that Neymar would be leaving PSG.

He also revealed that there was a time when Neymar was unhappy because of his injuries and said that at that time he was looking to leave PSG to return to Barcelona or Real Madrid, but times have changed.
“There was a time when he was sad because of his injuries. At that time, he was inclined to leave, to return to Barcelona or go to Real Madrid. Not today – you can see how happy he is.” he added further.
