Paris St-Germain (PSG) are set to sell striker Neymar, with club chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi noting that irresponsible behaviour from players would not be tolerated anymore says French media reports.
The Brazil international player joined the Ligue 1 side from FC Barcelona for a world record 222 million euros (£198 million) in August 2017.
However, Neymar missed large parts of the 2018/2019 campaign through injury and suspension and made just 17 league appearances, scoring 15 goals.
Recall that already Neymar was prior to this, disqualified from leading the team in Copa America, starting this month.
PSG will consider selling the 27-year-old in the forthcoming transfer window if they receive a substantial offer, a report in L’Equipe said on Sunday.
Neymar who is reportedly unsettled at the club and has told relatives that he was having difficulties in France.
This was even before he was accused of raping a woman in a Paris hotel in May- an allegation he had denied, backing it with evidence.
The report comes on the back of strong comments from chairman and CEO Al-Khelaifi about the attitude of squad members.
“Players will have to be more responsible than before,” he told France Football.
