Thomas Tuchel has told Paris Saint-Germain’s president that he does not want Neymar back on his team, according to Cadena SER. However, Nasser Al-Khelaifi is reportedly hoping Real Madrid will buy the Brazilian forward, rather than having to sell to Barcelona.

The player himself is hoping to push his move to Barça through, according to the report, which says next week will be key.

Real Madrid are keen on landing the star forward, with landing the Florentino Pérez having always wanted to bring Neymar to the “White House,” reports Diario SPORT.

While PSG reportedly would prefer to sell him to Madrid, Barcelona trust that the player himself will rebuff the chance to join the vikingos. That preference is probably because the Parisian club still has not forgiven Barça for trying to poach Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, and Adrien Rabiot. Another possible factor is that Madrid could offer more money in terms of a transfer fee, without needing to include any players as part of the deal. Finally, Madrid are said to be willing to offer more in salary to Neymar himself than Barcelona would.
