Neymar is refusing to accept a salary cut related to the coronavirus crisis, in a move that some say is the beginning of an exit for the Brazilian, according to a new report.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi reportedly has asked for a 70% salary reduction, which is said to be supported by the likes of Kylian Mbappé. But others, such as Neymar, Thiago Silva, Edinson Cavani, Juan Bernat, and Ander Herrera are rumored to be opposed.

Neymar’s refusal to accept the terms, it is said, is a signal that he’s ready to pack his bags and try to force a move back to Barcelona.

The player was close to joining his old club last summer, although PSG and Barcelona failed to come to an agreement.
