Neymar trains with PSG teammates, but doesn’t make this weekend’s squad
Ligue 1 Still doesn’t know where he’ll be playing in 2019/20
It’s still unclear where Neymar will be playing his football this season, but he remains a Paris Saint-Germain player for now and has returned to training.
Having seen his pre-season blighted by injuries, Neymar is only now returning to training with his teammates.
Despite speculation surrounding his future, the former Santos star trained on Saturday morning as the Parisian club prepared for their Ligue 1 clash with Stade Rennais.
He was pictured next to Kylian Mbappe and Thiago Silva and the fact he is once again working with the group is a development after having had to train separately earlier in the week due to his fitness issues.
Yet he wasn’t included in the squad for this weekend’s match as he is not yet deemed to be fit enough.
Barcelona representatives were in deep negotiations with PSG over a deal on Tuesday, yet a conclusion wasn’t reached.
According to reports, Philippe Coutinho was one of the players the French club would have been interested in discussing, but he is now set to join Bayern Munich and this has complicated matters further.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, lie in wait.
