The sticking point with PSG's star man is that the French league leaders already splashed out £198m on him, so Real would have to match or improve that.

'I keep hearing that Tite has problems with Neymar and I am tired of hearing that. we are tired of it, ' the 56-year-old Brazilian said.

"I don't like to compare managers but what I can say about Valverde is that I'm delighted with him and with the whole coaching setup", Alba added. "He's a bit of a globe-trotter and he hasn't been to France yet".

Messi and Neymar struck up a close bond during their time at Barcelona together, both on and off the pitch.

Despite the personal advantages of the Brazilian's move north, Alba did admit that losing the 25-year-old was a shame. I came to help, to contribute, I came to help my coach.

'When I arrived here we had a meeting and I told him I wanted to help him, and he told me he would help me achieve my objectives and goals in my career'. I already have the door open for him if he wants to come.


"I had a chat with (team coordinator) Edu and Tite because these things are hurting me, every day there are these stories".

The report claims that Juventus manager has extensively scouted Angel Di Maria and is considering a move for the winger.

PSG has looked ominous in Europe so far this season, sealing its progression from Group B with four consecutive victories.

"When you're being watched by everybody, you're expected to be perfect, and I'm not". I'm happy and motivated. "I've made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes, but I want to be better".

As a result, he wants the midfielder sold when the transfer window reopens in January. It's to be expected that at any given moment, when there's not been an agreement, that something like that can happen.

'There are a number of circumstances to take into account and we must be careful not to generalise, ' Tite implored.
