Neymar among FIVE PSG stars told to leave this summer

The Brazilian is set to depart


Brazil star Neymar is one of five PSG players that have been told they have no future at the Parc des Princes, according to reports coming out of France.

The forward spent the latter half of last season on the sidelines with an ankle injury, and has become unpopular with fans of the Ligue 1 side, who demanded that he depart with Lionel Messi, who has left on a free transfer.

The Brazilian is under contract until 2025 and very few sides across World Football are able to match his extravagant wage package. However, that has not stopped the French giants from washing their hands of him already this summer.

According to French outlet RMC Sport, Neymar is one of five players that have been told they will not be a part of the PSG squad, alongside Marco Verratti, Hugo Ekitiké, Juan Bernat and Renato Sanches.

Reports in Brazil take it one step further, and admit that there could even be an agreement by which the two parties agree to a mutual termination, leaving Neymar a free agent and free to join whichever club could afford his wages.

There is also the case of Kylian Mbappe, who was another of the “undesirables” left out of the pre-season tour of Japan and is set to be left out of their opening game of the Ligue 1 season too.

It is widely expected that the Frenchman will join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, but he could yet leave on loan or permanently before the end of this summer transfer window, though he has already rejected one offer from Saudi Arabia and is not expected to have his head turned by any club outside of Europe.
