Neymar could stay at PSG.

Brazil superstar Neymar has appeared to dampen talk about an impending blockbuster exit to Real Madrid after he tweeted he plans to “continue giving you joy” in regards to the Paris Saint-Germain fans.

Neymar, 26, made a world-record €222 million (Dh975.3m) move from Barcelona to the French capital last summer. Since then, rumours about a switch to Madrid have refused to go away.

But the Brazil superstar posted about PSG’s new kit on Saturday and gave hope that he could be set to remain in Ligue 1.

“Proud to wear the new jersey and to continue giving you joy,” read Neymar’s caption, alongside an image of him in the new shirt.

Neymar struck 28 times in 30 appearances for his new club prior to February’s broken metatarsal that ruled him for the rest of the domestic season.

YERRY MINA

The towering Barcelona centre-back could be in line for a shock loan switch to the Premier League, according to El Chiringuito.

Rumours are linking Liverpool with a loan move for the 23-year-old, who has reportedly told Blaugrana team-mates he is to leave Camp Nou having struggled to settle since his January transfer from Palmeiras.

Mina has featured just four times in all competitions for the Catalonian club this term – most recently during last week’s 5-1 home triumph over Villarreal.

However, he has failed to dislodge the reliable defensive pairing of Samuel Umtiti and stalwart Gerard Pique. A loan switch to England could allow him to gain much-needed experience in top-level European football.

Defensive stalwart: Yerry Mina.

Not an easy start to life at Barcelona for Yerry Mina.

RUI PATRICIO

Newly-promoted Premier League side Wolves are lining up a big summer bid for the Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper, Diario de Noticias reports.

The 30-year-old, who has also been linked with West Ham, has spent his entire career with the Portuguese giants but they could be tempted to offload the star should an offer in the region of £30m (Dh149m) come in.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is already planned in earnest for their return to the top-flight and sees Rui Patrício as a man who could bolster the Molineux ranks with much-needed experience.

However, any deal is not likely to be completed before this summer’s finals in Russia.

Lucas Perez could not prevent Deportivo's relegation from La Liga.

The summer transfer window is now a month away and the rumours of players potentially being on the move is gathering pace.

Across the world of football, there remains plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.

LUCAS PEREZ

Arsenal are set to let the Spaniard leave the Emirates this summer for next to nothing, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The 29-year-old, who signed for the Gunners in August 2016 but struggled to make an impact in North London, has spent this campaign on loan at Deportivo La Coruna – although he could not help the La Liga side avoid relegation from the top-flight.

Perez is likely to head back to Arsenal in pre-season but then be moved on swiftly, with Lazio being the frontrunners to acquire his services.

The Serie A side are resigned to not being able to turn Nani’s loan spell from Valencia into a permanent switch, and therefore, have identified forward Perez as a like-for-like replacement.

Lucas Perez enjoyed a tough campaign at the Emirates during 2016-17.

MALCOM

Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the pursuit of the Bordeaux attacker, who is set for a big summer move.

The Daily Mail reports that the Merseysiders are following the 21-year-old Brazilian closely and view him as someone who could develop into a big star in years to come.

The Ligue 1 side are aware they could fetch as much as €50 million (Dh219m) for his services, which in turn would help the mid-table outfit strengthen significantly in other areas for next season.

Malcom, who started his career at Corinthians, has been impressive this term and is likely to feature in the World Cup with his country this summer.

Is Malcom on the move? The French winger is said to be keen on a move to PSG.

Malcom has also been linked with PSG.

MATTIA PERIN

Juventus and Napoli have joined Chelsea in the chase to sign the highly-rated Genoa goalkeeper, according to Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport.

The 25-year-old has developed into one of the standout shot-stoppers in Serie A but is thought to be keen to earn a move to a bigger club where he can challenge for silverware and feature in the Champions League.

A product of Rossoblu’s youth system, Perin would leave Genoa with a heavy heart but the lure of Juve could prove too much – especially as the Old Lady view him as a long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are monitoring his situation with speculation being rife over the future of their No.1 Thibaut Courtois.
