  • PSG says, absent Neymar can leave for right offer
  • Paris Saint-Germain sport director Leonardo has confirmed
    that Neymar can leave the capital club this summer if an offer
    that suits all parties arrives and that Barcelona have been in
    vague contact.
    PSG issued an official statement on Monday condemning
    Neymar for missing the first day of preseason training amid
    strong links with a return to Barcelona, while Leonardo spoke
    with Le Parisien at length about the situation.
    "Neymar can leave PSG if there is an offer made that suits
    everybody," said the Brazilian transfer guru. "For now, we do
    not know if anybody wants to buy him or at what price. What is
    certain is that this sort of thing does not get done in one day.
    "We have not received any offers, but there has been very
    superficial contact (with Barca). They said they want to buy
    him but that we do not want to sell him. That is what [Barca
    chairman Josep Maria Bartomeu] said, but we did not see
    them in a real buying position."
    Leonardo was adamant that Neymar knew that he was due to
    report for preseason training on Monday but that he has
    instead committed himself to his institute and sponsors
    without PSG's permission.
    "He was not at the resumption of training," said Leonardo. "He
    needed to arrive but did not -- he knew to be there. We will
    study potential measures to take, as we would do with any
    other employee.
    "He made commitments, but these dates were not agreed
    with PSG. His last match was June 6 and holidays were until
    July 8. Then, he did not come."
    Leonardo also confirmed that he has spoken with Neymar and
    his entourage but refused to elaborate -- although he did
    emphasise that all parties are clear on his situation.
    "I do not want to go into details over our conversation. We
    talked with his entourage too. Everybody knows everything --
    the position is clear for everyone. One thing is absolutely
    concrete, though, and that is that Neymar has three more
    years of contract with us. With no offer, there is nothing to
    "In the case of Neymar, who was late for preseason training,
    will it be the club's fault for not handling this? No. If the player
    arrives late, it is their fault. There are internal procedures that
    follow, so we will see how things go. Players do not show up
    for training elsewhere than PSG."
    Meanwhile, the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti and new
    signing Ander Herrera were all present on Monday for a
    number of tests ahead of preparation for the 2019-20
    campaign, but the French champions went public and said that
    Neymar did not report for duty as agreed.
    "On Monday 8 July, Neymar was due to return to preseason
    activities with the PSG senior squad," read the club statement.
    "PSG notes that Neymar was not in attendance at the agreed
    time and place."
    PSG went on to clarify that Neymar did not have permission to
    be absent and stated that the Brazil international will be
    "This was without the club's prior authorisation," the Ligue 1
    giants added. "The club regrets this situation and will therefore
    take appropriate action."
    A spokesman for Neymar told ESPN Brasil that the club had
    been informed months ago that he would not return to Paris
    until July 15 due to his "commercial and institutional agenda."
    Neymar, who has been warned about his commitment by PSG
    chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi, missed Brazil's Copa
    America success on home soil this summer because of injury
    and was expected to be present in Paris so his latest fitness
    issues could be assessed.
    Sources have told ESPN FC already this summer that Les
    Parisiens are open to selling the €222 million man after two
    incomplete seasons at Parc des Princes, while Barca president
    Josep Bartomeu has claimed that the La Liga outfit know that
    Neymar wants to return to Camp Nou.
    Also, according to ESPN FC sources, Philippe Coutinho is likely
    to be added to any potential deal with PSG to take his
    compatriot back to Spain and Antoine Griezmann's impending
    arrival would not be an obstacle to Neymar's return.
