Barcelona midfielder, Andres Iniesta, has asked his team-mate, Neymar, to clear up the “noise” surrounding his future.
Iniesta said everybody involved would like the drama to end, but says the 25-year-old is the only one who can make that happen.
“We would all like this to be different,” he said at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s El Clasico in Miami.
“But the only way is for Ney to speak out.
“We want him to stay with us, but we also want this noise to be cleared up, whether it is for the player himself or for the club. Restoring the peace would be to everyone’s benefit.”
While Iniesta wants the saga to end, he also admitted that it wouldn’t be worth losing one of the best in the game.
“[Neymar] is one of the best players in the world and he is giving us so much,” he said.
“I hope he will be at Barca for a long time, it is my only wish.
“I cannot see how 200 or 300 million would benefit the team more than having him. I want the best in my team and he is one of the best.”
