Neymar seems to be nearing exit at Paris Saint-Germain, as the his jerseys and images were removed from the club’s official store on Monday, reports in France say.
Spanish newspaper, Marca, report that the forward’s representatives were seen at Camp Nou on Monday, bringing in a twist to the player’s situation.
Barcelona’s arch-rivals, Real Madrid, were recently leading in the race to sign the former Santos’ player, for whom they offered $150 million plus Luka Modric. But the Paris giants did not reveal if they accepted the offer.
That did not happen until when the Catalans ended their intention to bring the player back, when the club said the condition was “complicated”.
PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, revealed on Saturday, that talks over the player’s exit was in “advanced stage”.
The Brazilian has not played for the Ligue 1 champions since last season, as he is currently serving a three-match ban for assaulting a fan during the final of French Cup during the last campaign.
He has been vocal about his desire to leave the club in this current transfer window, and it has been suggested that he could return to Barcelona, from where he joined for a world record fee of $280 million in 2017.
