Allow Me To Leave, Neymar Begs PSG
Brazilian superstar Neymar has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club amid wide speculations of him returning to former club Barcelona.
Neymar, whose club future has been the source of intense speculation, confirmed his intention to leave the French capital after talks with PSG’s sporting director Leonardo earlier on Monday, reports Sky Sports News.
It was understood PSG tried to convince Neymar to change his mind and the Brazil international did not tell his club where he would like to move.
PSG have yet to make a formal comment but Sky Sports News reports that talks continue over a potential return to Barcelona for the 27-year-old.
Barça Offer PSG €40M Plus Coutinho, Dembélé For Neymar
Barcelona have offered PSG 40 million euros plus Philippe Coutinho and Ousmae Dembélé for superstar Neymar.
Concise News understands that this bid has been rejected by the Ligue 1 side.
The objective for Al-Khelaifi is to recoup as much as possible of the 222 million euros they paid for the striker in August of 2017 and the Qatari director has told his intermediaries that they won’t entertain offers under 300 million euros for the Brazilian’s signature.
The money, currently, is beyond the financial means of the Catalan club, who were forced to take out a loan to fund the recent Antoine Griezmann deal with Atlético Madrid.
