Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Neymar wants to leave the club but does not know if he will depart the club this summer.

Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move for their former star, and Tuchel says he’s known since before the Copa America he wanted out.

“I am always disappointed when a player turns up late. But it is clear between us, now it is between the club and Ney. We work together,” he said.

”Did I know he wanted to leave? Yes, I found out before the Copa America. But it is something between the club and Ney.

”I am the coach, it’s my player. If he is in the locker room, this is my player and I work with him.”
