Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery has moved to quash rumours that Neymar could be in line for a summer move to Real Madrid.

Additionally, Goal revealed that Neymar has a gentlemen's agreement with the PSG board which will allow him to leave for Madrid should he help deliver Champions League glory to the Ligue 1 champions .

Emery, however, insists his star attacker is going nowhere.
