The capital club's sports director made an update on Neymar last night after PSG's 2-0 victory over Metz.
"Our position has always been clear. They knew what we wanted. The first time we had an official written proposal from Barcelona was on August 27, just five days before the end of the transfer window. We were open to talking about their players to do the operation and we never had a written agreement after that. I do not know if there will be an agreement, it depends on them. We are three days from the end of the transfer window, there is a natural deadline. (…) All those who were in the negotiation know our position. The clubs made operations early in the transfer window, after that it was more difficult to afford. Which Barça players do we want? No that's not it. Barça makes a proposal and we accept or do not accept."Leonardo then spoke specifically about Neymar, still absent in Metz: "His position was clear and ours too. If a proposal arrives and it suits us, he can leave. This is not the case. (…) Neymar is an extraordinary player. (…) After today, we tell the truth, it is not the most quiet relationship that exists (between the PSG and Neymar). We have a complicated relationship, things have happened, we have to deal with them. We opened the door on his departure, but on conditions that never happened."
Neymar does not seem to have left the PSG yet.
