Neymar Skips FC Barcelona Training, Given Permission To Leave?
Neymar was supposed to return to first team training with FC Barcelona today but has skipped practice, with reports claiming he has been given permission to leave the club.
The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain in the past couple of weeks, and it seems a move is edging closer.
Neymar returned to Barcelona today, but has been given permission to skip training, as confirmed by the club's Spanish Twitter account.
The tweet translates to: "Neymar Jr does not train with the permission of the coach", which many have interpreted as permission to leave the club.
The 25-year-old apparently spent just 40 minutes at Barca's training ground, and has bid farewell to his teammates, according to Spanish publication AS.
Meanwhile, Neymar is reportedly in Paris to iron out the final details of his €222 million (R3.49 billion) move to PSG.
