'The No10 shirt is waiting for him' – Joelinton wants Neymar to join him at Newcastle in shock transfer from PSG | The Sun

JOELINTON wants Brazil legend Neymar to join him at Newcastle from Paris Saint-Germain – saying Toon’s No10 shirt is waiting for him. 

Neymar has reportedly been told by PSG chiefs he is no longer wanted at the Parc de Princes. 

The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have both shown an interest in the 30-year-old, but Newcastle are possibly the only club that could afford his mammoth £490,000-a-week wages. 

Newcastle’s Samba star Joelinton was joined in the North East by compatriot Bruno Guimaraes in July – and he revealed he will get Bruno to turn agent and invite Neymar to Tyneside. 

Speaking on the Cast FC podcast, Joelinton said: “We can get him a spot. If he comes it will be…I can’t explain it. 

“The man is an idol, huge in world football, so the invitation is done.

“Ney, if you are listening to this, you can come!”

Joelinton, 25, even went as far as to offer Neymar Allan Saint-Maximin’s shirt number.

He added: “The 10 shirt is waiting for him.

“I’ll send a message to Bruno. Bruno has his contact. He can send a message inviting Ney to play there.”

But the Dutch defender said: “Ultimately, Newcastle United’s great project, in combination with playing in the Premier League, was the deciding factor.

“That last one has been a dream my whole life. AC Milan also gave me a good feeling, but Newcastle United felt just a little better in the end. 

"I really wanted to go to Newcastle United in January, because I also heard, and that’s a cliché, I know, that a train like this doesn’t pass by very often.
