PSG and Neymar build bridges during pre-season tour

The relationship between Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain appeared to be broken beyond repair earlier this summer as the player sought a move away from the club, but the two parties have been brought closer together during the team’s pre-season tour in China.

Although the Ligue 1 champions were frustrated by the Brazilian’s decision to join pre-season preparations one week after his teammates, they are pleased with his behaviour since joining the group.

Neymar is not part of Thomas Tuchel’s squad list for the upcoming game against Inter, but PSG have made it clear that he is staying in Paris.

In the last week, the two parties have come together to ease recent tensions and the 27-year-old forward participated willingly in the team’s promotional events.

PSG acknowledge that Neymar’s presence boosts their brand worldwide and they have made clear that a huge offer has to arrive in order for them to part ways with their superstar.

No progress has been made in contacts with Barcelona and the French club’s sporting director, Leonardo, insists that no offer has arrived for the Brazilian.
