PSG get tough with Neymar, Football News & Top Stories

Neymar can go but there are no offers PSG sporting director Leonardo

Neymar can go but there are no offers PSG sporting director Leonardo

Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona for a world record 222m euros (£200m) in August 2017.

But, under both current coach Thomas Tuchel formerly Unai Emery, PSG have been unable to transform domestic dominance into European success - exiting the Champions League at the last 16 stage in each of the last two seasons.

"Paris Saint-Germain note that Neymar Jr was not in attendance at the agreed time and place".

After his absence, PSG issued a statement saying that they would study a possible punishment for the footballer. "UOL Esporte" had already revealed that it would be a fine, something which "Football Leaks" has seconded.

With Paris Saint-Germain confirming that they will take "appropriate action" against Neymar for going AWOL, the father of the world's most expensive player has angrily responded to the Ligue 1 giants decision.

"The reason (for his no-show) was known and planned for a year as part of his activities for the Neymar Institute (charitable foundation)", said his father.

Said Leonardo: "We have not received any offers". It's as simple as that, no drama. "Of course we are angry, because PSG have always been aware of the situation".

Neymar is undergoing treatment on the torn ankle ligaments that ruled him out of the Copa America. The big link has been with Neymar taking a move back to the Nou Camp with former club Barcelona.

It looks as if Neymar is forcing a move away from PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain's sporting director Leonardo has admitted that Neymar could be on his way out of the club this summer amid speculation linking the Brazilian with a return to Barcelona.

Barcelona, now embroiled in efforts to sign Antoine Griezmann, have yet to publicly express an interest in Neymar.

Last week, Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu claimed Neymar wants to leave PSG this summer.

Responding to Neymar Sr's claims, Leonardo said: "He wasn't here in training".

In four years at Barcelona, the 27-year-old won the Champions League in 2015 and two La Liga titles, forming a brilliant attacking trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

However, fellow former Barca and Spain worldwide Lobo Carrasco believes Neymar's return would cause problems defensively.

And the club were left unimpressed by the Brazilian's non-attendance upon their return to pre-season training.

Neymar's time at PSG has been punctuated by injury and controversy.
