PARIS ST-GERMAIN president Nasser Al-Khelaifi appears to have given the green light for Neymar to quit the Ligue 1 club.
Rumours that the Brazilian is unhappy in France have circulated almost since the star signed from Barcelona last summer.
The £200m deal which took Neymar to the Parc des Princes still stands as the world record transfer fee ever paid. Real Madrid have been courting the former Barcelona man all season, and now it appears they may get an opportunity to sign their man.
President Al-Khelaifi has seemingly taken a swipe at Neymar by stating that “no player is bigger than the club”.
PSG won the Ligue 1 title by 13 points but Neymar was forced to sit out the last four month of the season with a fractured metatarsal.
The president spoke to French outlet L’Equipe and claimed that anyone who is not happy at the club can leave.
“Nothing and nobody is bigger than the club, not the coach nor the players,” Al-Khelaifi told L’Equipe.
“The club is and always will be first, it is bigger. If someone does not accept that and is not happy, then they leave.
“Each and every person must give their best and do their best for PSG… Since we have been here [Qatari ownership], we have won 19 trophies.
“That’s enormous. But we are still criticised a lot. But those are things that happen to all these clubs.
“If today I was to tell you that we are going to leave, what would your opinion be?”
Neymar scored 28 goals in 30 matches for PSG before suffering his season-ending foot injury back in February.
The 26-year-old netted 19 goals and added 13 assists as he was named the Ligue 1 Player of the Year.
