Paris Saint-Germain have promised their new boss Thomas Tuchel that star forward Neymar will not be sold, while outgoing manager Unai Emery also believes the Brazilian will stay put amid fierce speculation of another record-breaking summer move.
He was absent from PSG's Ligue 1 title celebrations in April and was a spectator at the Stade de France on Tuesday when his side beat third-tier Les Herbiers 2-0 in the French Cup final to complete a domestic treble. Have your say in the comment section below. There is an extraordinary potential in Paris and this is the most exciting challenge of my career.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: "Thomas is one of the most competitive European coaches to have emerged at the highest level in recent years".
He added: "He is strongly imbued with the principles of spectacular and clinical football that have always been at the heart of German football, especially on the worldwide scene. His ambitious personality, his stated predilection for attacking football and his strength of character are all in keeping with the style that we have wanted to instil here at Paris Saint-Germain".
He will be tasked with ensuring that they continue to dominate at home while finally making a major impression in the Champions League, having failed to go beyond the quarter-finals in the Qatar era.
PSG appoints Thomas Tuchel as new manager
Tuchel comes in after taking the reins at Dortmund from Jurgen Klopp in 2015.
Neymar emerged victor of the best player in France ahead of teammates Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe and Marseille's Florian Thauvin who finished fourth.
While there's no doubting Tuchel is a talented coach, there have been rocky spells in his career previously.
The job will be Tuchel's first since leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the 2016-17 season. "I am very happy with the season just gone".
Emery's predecessor Laurent Blanc was also fired following PSG's continued failure to progress beyond the last eight of Europe's elite club competition.
