Transfer Speculation Continue Amidst Awards Ceremony

Brazil legend Ronaldo and Neymar met at an awards ceremony, where the football legend handed his compatriot the Ligue 1 Player of the Season award.

Football news: I do not know if Neymar is happy at Paris Saint-Germain or not, said Ronaldo

At the awards ceremony, Neymar said that it is very “annoying” regarding the constant transfer speculation over his future, but did not mention the fact whether he would leaving PSG this summer or not.

Ronaldo told beIN SPORTS France in an interview that he does not know the mental condition of Neymar and is not certain if he would leave the French club after just one season.

"Neymar has given France plenty, but also Ligue 1. Everybody speaks about PSG and Le Championnat all over the world. He is a very good player, and everybody talks about him.

"Was joining PSG a good decision? Neymar has been here for a year and he was unlucky with his injury. I do not know if he is happy here in Paris or not, but life goes on. We need to wait and see what happens," Ronaldo said.

PSG has already named former Borussia Dortmund coach, Thomas Tuchel, as the successor of Unai Emery. PSG’s captain Thiago Silva have stated some similarities between the new coach and the Brazilian contingent present at the club.

"For now, nobody has told us anything. However, if it really is confirmed, he is a coach a little from our school. He is German but with a Brazilian way of thinking about the game. That will help us plenty.

"He likes plenty of order? In the world of football, a bit of order is necessary. If he arrives with the mentality that many have spoken about, he will add a lot," Silva said at the awards ceremony.

PSG’s talented Brazilian defender Marquinhos has told Canal+ on Sunday that in the past two seasons there had been some disagreements between former coach Emery and some players.

"Unai always spoke with us. We had many discussions with him in the dressing room. … Perhaps at one moment he had his ideas and others had theirs. However, of course there were some disagreements with the coach — like in any other team," Marquinhos said.

The awards ceremony went pretty well for PSG. Neymar was voted the best player and Emery was voted the best coach. Kylian Mbappe received the award for best young player. Seven players from PSG, including Mbappe and Neymar, featured in the Team XI of the season.
