Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel has given the condition required for the exit of star player Neymar.
The Brazilian international player wants to leave PSG this summer after two seasons in the French capital of Paris.
In a chat with French news channel Canal+, Thomas Tuchel said that PSG have to sign a replacement before Neymar is allowed to leave the club.
Neymar is attracting interest from the two major Spanish clubs namely Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Earlier reports claimed that PSG is open to a loan move for Neymar with an option to sign him permanently at the end of that loan deal.
The player’s preference is to return to Barcelona whom he left for PSG two years ago.
Neymar spent four years at Barcelona between 2013 and 2017 before his transfer to PSG.
During his time at Barcelona, Neymar formed a potent attacking trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
The three players were at Barcelona for three years between 2014 and 2017 before Neymar joined PSG in a deal reported to be around €220m.
French Ligue 1 giants PSG activated the release clause in his then Barcelona contract making him the most expensive player in the history of world football.
