The row between Neymar and his French side, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) over his transfer desire has now taken a worse turn.
The Brazilian star reportedly told PSG that he will no longer play for them as part of efforts to force through a move back to Barcelona.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a sensational summer return to the Nou Camp but the Parisian club have told him that he won’t be going anywhere before the transfer window closes.
Spanish news outlet SPORT reports that Neymar is now taking drastic action and is unwilling to meet any of their demands until a move has been agreed.
PSG is making moves to convince Neymar to stay for one more season if they agreed to let him go next summer.
But the football superstar is bent on leaving the club now and has decided to train by himself on PSG’s pre-season tour of China.
He has also remained on the bench since returning from his summer break, hoping to force through his move before the window closes.
