(Soccer) Neymar goes ahead with China tripSports | 24 Jul 2019 7:16 pm
Neymar will travel on an upcoming tour of China with Paris-Saint Germain, the club said yesterday, as the troubled Brazilian's future remains up in the air amid mounting signs he is unhappy at the French champions, AFP reports.
The 27-year-old, who has been repeatedly linked to a move to Barcelona, failed to show up to PSG's pre-season training on July 8, with his camp maintaining he had a prior agreement to stay away.
The club threatened to take "appropriate action" against the world's most expensive player, who said he had stayed in Brazil to attend a charity five-a-side football tournament run by his foundation.
Neymar, who joined PSG in 2017 for 222 million euros, rejoined the team a week later on July 15. He also didn't help the strained relationship by controversially saying that his best football memory was beating PSG when he played for Barcelona.
