Neymar can leave Paris Saint-Germain if there is an offer that “suits all parties”, says the club’s sporting director Leonardo.
Leonardo, who recently returned to his role at the club, says it is “clear to everyone” what the Brazil star’s desire is and admits there has been “superficial” contact with Barcelona.
The Ligue 1 club have already said they will take “appropriate action” after revealing that the Brazil international did not return for the first day of pre-season training, despite a prior agreement.
However, Sky Sports News understands the player claims he told club officials he would return on July 15 as part of an agreed extended break.
Neymar is understood to have commitments with his charitable institute in Brazil this week and will not cancel plans with children involved in the project.
