Neymar was asked about joining Newcastle United while meeting YouTuber and he reacted

The Magpies were taken over by a Saudi-led consortium in October and they're one of the wealthiest teams in world football.
Despite that, this summer has seen them make just three signings.
Matt Targett was signed on a permanent deal after impressing on loan from Aston Villa last season, while Nick Pope and Sven Botman have joined from Burnley and Lille respectively.
Some supporters are dreaming big though. Neymar is among the huge names mentioned and there's a strong Brazilian contingent at St. James' Park already in the form of Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes.
True Geordie decided to try his luck during a recent Pokerstars event while the duo posed for a photo.
Stood next to the 30-year-old, True Geordie asks: "So you're coming to Newcastle yeah?", which brings a laugh from Neymar.
It'd certainly go down as one of the strangest negotiation tactics for any transfer, ever.
True Geordie tweeted the clip and cheekily captioned it: "I met @neymarjr yesterday and basically… he’s coming to @NUFC. Big thanks to @PokerStars for setting it up!"
Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona for a world record €222 million in 2017 and he was the crown jewel of their star-studded side for years.
Kylian Mbappe shocked the world back in May after agreeing to a lucrative contract extension with the Ligue 1 champions.
Mbappe was expected to join Real Madrid on a free transfer, but he's now arguably the most powerful individual at the Parc des Princes after putting pen to paper on a €250 million-per-year deal.
A number of reports claim the World Cup winner has influence when it comes to decisions within the club.
This brings us to Saturday night, which saw Mbappe step up and miss PSG's first penalty in a 5-2 victory over Montpellier. Neymar took the second and scored it, but a disagreement reportedly saw tensions boil over in the dressing room.
A report from @EsamB2Back claims Mbappe and Neymar shouted at one other and butted heads, before being separated by teammates. It's been claimed objects were thrown too.
Does this mean Neymar will decide to leave the drama behind and move to the Premier League? Only time will tell.
