PSG boss Unai Emery has broken his silence on speculation linking the French giants with a sensational £196million move for Neymar.
The Spanish coach confirmed their interest, stating that acquiring the Brazilian’s services would propel them into Champions League contention.
Barcelona are adamant the forward won’t depart the Nou Camp, but the Parisians are keen on sealing what would comfortably be a world record deal.
“PSG wants the best players in the world, who are in the best clubs in the world,” Emery told L’Equipe .
“If we want to compete with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and win the Champions League, then PSG must have a player of the world top five. We are trying to get one signed this summer.
“Neymar belongs to the top five in the world. The president and the club have been working for years to attract the best players.
“The team, but also the fans, would be glad that there is a top five, six or seven player in addition to the already strong ones who are here.
“This quest is not easy. Maybe we’ll get there, maybe not.”
