Reports coming out of France claim that Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain, have informed Brazil’s Neymar Jr, that he is no longer wanted at the club.
The club’s failure to clinch the most-coveted UEFA Champions League trophy led to the sacking of the Argentine gaffer Mauricio Pochettino and Neymar could be next as the club is keen to rebuild its squad.
Sky Sports and RMC reported that the club has informed the 30-year-old that he can look for a new club as they are looking to rebuild without him.
Unlike Neymar, PSG began its rebuilding process by resigning forward Kylian Mbappe on a £650,000-a-week deal, which authorises him to have a meaningful say in the club’s wider decision-making, according to DailyMail.
The next step for Parc de Princes chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi was to lure football advisor Luis Campos to Paris and is close to agreeing terms with Nice manager Christophe Galtier.
However, Premier League giants, Chelsea, have been strongly linked to Neymar recently as new owner Todd Boehly looks to rebuild the club.
Neymar joined PSG for a world-record transfer fee of £199.8m in 2017 from Barcelona and is said to be considering an exit after five years at the club but the Brazilian still has a £24m-a-year contract at the Parc de Princes until 2025.
As such, potential suitors will have to empty their pockets should they wish to land the Brazil star, Daily Mail added.
According to Spanish outlet Sport last week, the French champions offered Barcelona the chance to sign him for £43m, although they are currently entrenched in financial complications.
Juventus were also believed to be interested in Neymar at the cut-price valuation, but the Italian giants have already had to offload free agents Giorgio Chiellini, Paulo Dybala and Federico Bernardeschi in an effort to match Paul Pogba’s £6.8m-per-year wage demands.
