Paris Saint Germain (PSG) sporting director Leonardo has revealed that star player Neymar has not been removed from the playing group.
In a chat with RMC Sport, Leonardo said that PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has not removed Neymar from the playing squad.
He was reacting to recent reports which claimed that Neymar has not played for PSG this season due to his desire to leave the French club this summer.
According to the PSG sporting director, Neymar has not been involved with the playing squad as he’s still recuperating from an injury.
Neymar is presently recovering from the ankle injury he sustained during the summer.
The Brazilian national team star played his last game for PSG on the 11th of May.
Neymar has been linked with a move away from PSG with clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Brazilian attacker has told PSG officials that he wants to return to Spain after two years in the French capital of Paris.
Long-term Manchester United target Neymar wants to return to Barcelona whom he left in the summer of 2017.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have made several bids for the Brazilian international in their quest to sign him before the end of the European transfer window next month.
