It is not a question of money, it is a question of stability.”Neymar has accepted our vision. He is very ambitious and PSG offered him the space to work on these ambitions.”PSG currently lead Ligue 1 by nine points, with Neymar scoring 11 goals and providing nine assists in 13 games.The French club, ironically, will face Real in the Champions League Round of 16.
