Transfer Update: Neymar

With rumours suggesting that Neymar has been put up for sale by Paris Saint-Germain, the club's president has responded to the big question surrounding the Brazil international's future.

Mbappe: Why I Wanted To Retire From France

Following the 2021/22 campaign, it was claimed the 30-year-old had become surplus to requirements in Paris, despite his current deal only expiring in 2025.

It was suggested that Kylian Mbappe, who recently signed a new three-year contract in France, was open to his colleague being sold, although it remains unclear as to whether or not any club can afford the Selecao talisman's services.

In a recent interview, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was asked if the former Barcelona forward would remain a key component of the club's sporting project.

"Neymar part of the new project or not? We can't speak about this in public as some players will arrive, some players will leave the club," he told Marca.

"These are private negotiations."

Seemingly refusing to rule out an exit for the Brazilian, Al-Khelaifi added in no uncertain terms that players not involved in the team's plans will need to leave in this transfer window.

"Our position is clear: players who are not part of the project have to leave this summer, there's no other way," he continued.

"Some players took advantage of the situation, but now, it's over."

Neymar has scored 100 goals and assisted a further 60 strikes in 144 matches for PSG since his arrival in 2017, winning 11 trophies along the way.

Here is where Neymar ranked among the 10 highest-paid footballers in the world this past season:
