LET ME GO! NEYMAR TELLS PSG

Neymar has told PSG he wants to leave the club before the transfer deadline amid interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Brazilian forward has only recently settled back into training with the French champions, but his stance has not changed.

He is now pressing PSG to close an agreement with another club this week so he can leave Paris immediately.

Madrid have asked for more time to propose a deal for the 27-year-old, and in theory have until the September 2 deadline.

Barcelona meanwhile are pushing forward with negotiations, but want a player-plus-cash transfer, which is proving to be a sticking point.

Sections of the PSG fanbase have already turned on Neymar since his announcement that he wanted to leave the club earlier in the summer.

He is back training with the first-team but was left out of PSG’s Ligue 1 opener against Nimes, as fans vented their anger with X-rated banners.

Neymar’s sister leapt to his defence on social media, blasting the fans involved. But the superstar’s position at the club is becoming more untenable by the day.

PSG have now of the world’s most expensive player from their club shop.

Barca and Real are both hoping to capitalise, but are still some way off agreeing a move with PSG.

Spanish publication Sport report that Madrid have offered £130 million plus outcast James Rodriguez in exchange for Neymar – but PSG are not interested in the Colombian.

They have instead suggested midfielder Isco or either of Madrid’s goalkeepers, Thibaut Courtois or Keylor Navas, be included in the deal.

Barcelona are also hopeful of arranging a transfer which would see one of their players move to the Parc des Princes.

Philippe Coutinho is the one player being touted by the Catalan club, with the former Liverpool man surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp.

Neymar is thought to prefer a move back to his former club, and there are suggestions that PSG are using Real’s interest as a way of pressurising Barca to make their move.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane refused to rule out a move for the forward, but PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is still hopeful he will remain at the club. Tuchel said: “He may stay. But it’s not over, we have to be realistic. Things are between the PSG, Neymar and the other club.”
