It has been a busy 48 hours for Neymar and his entourage.
At 9:25am on Wednesday morning, @ confirmed that Neymar didn’t train with the squad on Wednesday with the permission of the coach, Ernesto Valverde.
Sky Sports journalist @ then claimed that the player told Barcelona teammates that he will leave the club to join Paris Saint Germain, as key players were ‘fed up’ with situation.
Neymar then travelled to London on Wednesday afternoon to ‘relax’, according to Cadena COPE.
According to RMC, Neymar will undertake a medical with PSG on Thursday before the club officialise his signing that evening or Friday morning, but these latest reports will cast doubt over the deal.
