Get French Football News (via L’Equipe) claim that an accumulation of elements – notably the damage to his public image following his current sexual assault case and a “primadona” attitude – have led the club owners coming to a decision to get rid of the 27-year-old in the event of a presentable proposal being submitted for their star Brazilian.
But any bid will have to be at least €222m – the amount they paid for the player when signing him from Barcelona two summers ago.
The respected outlet adds that Neymar has told people close to him in recent weeks that he would like to leave the French capital this summer.
PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi yesterday told GFFN: “The players are going to have to assume their responsibilities even more than before.
“It has to be completely different. They will have to do more, work more. They are not here to have fun.
“And if they don’t agree with this point of view, the doors are open. Ciao! I no longer want to have superstar behaviour.”
While he did not name any players specifically, the French press are adamant that his comments were targeted at Neymar after he has taken up more headlines off the pitch than on it in recent months.
Neymar’s agent Pini Zahavi has, over the last couple of weeks, begun to make manoeuvres for Neymar to move this summer – specifically to bring about the Brazilian’s return to Spain and Barcelona.
The newspaper claims discussions are ongoing between PSG and Barca and the possibility of a including a player in part exchange has been invoked internally.
Real Madrid have also made an enquiry for the Brazilian, who is injured and will miss out on the Copa America, but are understood not to be in pole position to land him.
