By | 25th August 2019

NEYMAR has been left out of the PSG squad for their game against Toulouse as speculation continues over his future.

The 27-year-old has not featured for the French champs this season as he chases a move back to Spain.

Neymar is back in training but seemingly not going to be picked until his future is resolved

Real Madrid and former club Barcelona are leading the chase for the Brazilian.

His boss at PSG, Thomas Tuchel, hinted that Neymar could be back for the Toulouse game if “his situation was resolved”.

Seemingly that is not the case as he has been left out of tonight’s match-day squad.

Speaking in the week Tuchel said: “Neymar is improving every day and is capable of working with the team.

“He’s completed all of the training sessions, showing the right quality and intensity.

“But the situation between him and the club is the same. The club’s position is clear.


“If his situation hasn’t been resolved, he can’t play. If his situation is resolved before tomorrow, he’ll play. If not, he won’t.”

SunSport reported how one possible hold-up to Neymar making his dream move back to La La is his astronomical wage demands.

The forward has been pursuing a move away from the French capital all summer.

But according to AS the Brazilian will demand a five-year deal worth £32million per season for any potential suitor.

Barca were the first to make a move for the player they sold to PSG for a record £198m two-years ago.

It was understood the La Liga champions lodged a loan bid with the option to make the move permanent for £137m next summer, according to Marca.

However, PSG rejected the offer and insisted Neymar can be loaned out, but only with the obligation to buy the player for £200m next season.
