Paris Saint-Germain, PSG, forward, Neymar has now decided that he does not want to play for the club again in any official matches.
According to Sport, the Brazilian international told PSG that he wants to leave the club and is now waiting to see if a move to Barcelona can be facilitated.
The Spanish newspaper is reporting that Neymar is currently training on his own at the club’s pre-season tour in China and has not featured in any game for the Ligue 1 champions.
Gltrends had reported that PSG have set the price for Neymar, with the French club demanding €300m (£273m).
The 27-year-old has been the subject of transfer speculations all summer, with Barcelona keen on bringing him back to the Camp Nou.
However, PSG are not interested in a possible player swap which has been suggested by the Spanish La Lig champions.
Neymar is under contract until 2022, giving the French giants plenty of leverage in negotiations.
PSG sporting director, Leonardo, recently admitted that the club is prepared to sell Neymar after he failed to report for pre-season training some weeks ago.
He said: “PSG affirms that the player Neymar Jr was not present at the time and place required, without prior authorisation from the club.
“PSG regrets this situation and will take appropriate action.”
