Talks of Neymar’s departure continue to shake-up the football world, but apparently, Barcelona team mates are getting “sick” of hearing about his antics, Soccer Laduma reports.
Paris Saint-Germain's president is however "very confident" to see this world record deal through. Neymar's contract contains a €222 million buyout clause, which would make him the world's most expensive player.
As cited by Daily Mirror, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi mentioned to Yahoo Sport France that "Negotiations for Neymar are going well. I'm very confident."
Barcelona are reportedly lining up Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmana Dembele as a possible replacement for Neymar, should he join PSG.
Although Ligue 1 falls short against Europe's leading domestic leagues, having Neymar in the team would be a game-changer for French football.
ESPN adds that Barcelona have confirmed that Neymar will miss training on Wednesday because he intends to leave the club as a move to Paris Saint-Germain draws closer.
The Spanish team tweeted: "Neymar Jr hasn't trained on Wednesday with the permission of the coach."
Barca manager Ernesto Valverde gave him the go-ahead not to train and to "sort out his future".
