Meanwhile, fans at the Parc des Princes have already lost their patience over Neymar and want the club to sell him at the earliest.

PSG Sporting director Leonardo has already confirmed that the club is willing to sell Neymar but at the right price and according to a report in ESPN FC both Barcelona and Real are negotiating with the French club to bring Neymar back to Spain.
