PSG want to 'get rid of' Neymar

World News

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to "get rid of" Neymar, with the club's chiefs said to have grown fed up with the Brazilian.

It all seems to be going down at the Parc des Princes following the team's elimination from the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Parisians have been blighted by a range of issues, including a UEFA disciplinary investigation against their president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Leonardo for their alleged conduct towards the match officials after the team's exit from the UCL at the hands of Real Madrid.

The club is known to be dealing with the prospect of Kylian Mbappe leaving at the end of the season, while coach Mauricio Pochettino is also reportedly on the brink of being sacked following this week's result.

In the midst of all this, the Parisians are now said to be ready "to get rid" of Neymar due to "too many issues" they feel do not justify how much they paid to acquire his services from FC Barcelona back in 2017, according to French journalist Romain Molina via Sport.

It is reported that some of the factors for his possible sale in the next window include the poor relationship Les Parisiens has with his father (who is also his agent) and his recurring injuries, while his attitude has also been questioned a number of times by the club's hierarchy.

One of the latest concerns to arise regarding the Selecao forward was an alleged bust-up with goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, although the attacker has denied these claims.

The fact that the Ligue 1 giants have gone five seasons without winning the Champions League with the Selecao talisman in their ranks – having paid €222 million (R3.6 billion) to bring him on board – is also said to be a factor.

With PSG now having to wait another year to achieve their UCL dream, Neymar's lack of impact in the round of 16 tie against Los Blancos appears to have been the final straw for Al-Khelaifi and company, who are now seemingly ready to sell the forward in the next transfer window.
