Neymar has been ordered to train away from the PSG team.

According to reports from L’Equipe in France, and Calciomercato in Itay, he has been prohibited from training with the squad.

He has been told he will not be permitted to train with the team until his future is resolved one way or the other.

All the talk of him leaving, and deal proposals and meetings are believed to be a distraction that is not welcomed by the Paris Saint Germain hierarchy.

It is thought that his future at PSG is only expected to last just a few more days.

He did not make any appearance for the club during the opening game of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season, in their fixture against Nimes.

There is the talk of multiple permutations of a player plus cash deal from both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Catalonians are reported to have around 100 million Euros in cash available and are willing to make up the 150 million Euro difference with a combination of players.

These include Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, and Ousmane Dembele.

Los Blancos have made a similar offer. Their list of available players includes Gareth Bale, Keylor Navas, James Rodriguez as well as Vinicius Jr and now Luka Jovic.

The Parisians would prefer a straight-up cash deal, of 250 million Euros. With Barca and Real having spent 200 and 300 million Euros respectively, that is unlikely to happen this summer.

Both the Spanish outfits have struggled to offload expensive assets in an attempt to generate the necessary cash.

There is still the possibility of an Mbappe style deal, of a one year with an obligation to buy.

But at the moment it is anyone’s game. It is more than likely Neymar will leave, and continue to train alone until he does.

Where he ends up depends on who proposes the sweetest deal to PSG.
