Neymar warned over commitment by PSG chief

Neymar warned over commitment by PSG chief

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) would not oppose letting Brazilian forward Neymar go three years before his contract ends in case of a generous offer, the French sports outlet L'Equipe reports. The incident, which he denies, is claimed to have occurred at a Paris hotel in mid-May.

Al-Khelaifi is certain that the 20-year-old France World Cup victor will still be at PSG next season.

The Lyon man, who has been courted by all of the usual suspects - Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain - over the past year, has come to the attention of Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy recently, after a series of impressive performances in the Champions League.

In the same interview he said of Neymar: "I want players that are ready to give everything to defend the honour of our shirt and who sign up to the club's project".

As reported by ESPN FC sources back in February, sporting director Antero Henrique had been on the way out for some time and Al-Khelaifi confirmed it was not a rushed decision to part with the Portuguese.

Al-Khelaifi told France Football he will no longer put up with any "celebrity behaviour" at the club.


"It has to be completely different. They are not here to have fun, and if they do not agree, the doors are open, Ciao!" while adding "I do not want any more star behavior".

"I realised changes were essential", Al-Khelaifi said. "I will not be letting this insane player go".

Neymar arrived in Paris in 2017 for a monumental £200m fee, making him the most expensive player in the world. "Nobody pushed him. He came knowingly to join a project".

There were calls from supporters during Hazard's official unveiling at the Santiago Bernabeu for an approach for Mbappe to be made.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and the two Manchester clubs are the ones who, appropriately have been immediately linked. "Otherwise, we were going nowhere". "Leonardo will have absolute sporting power".
