PSG manager Thomas Tuchel says Neymar will not play for the club until his future has been resolved.

The Brazilian continues to be linked with a move away from the club with Barcelona and Real Madrid both said to be keen to sign him before the close of the transfer window.

Neymar is yet to make an appearance for the club this season and will remain on the sidelines despite looking in good shape in training.

“Neymar is in better shape,” Tuchel said. “He has had a good week with his teammates, working hard with intensity and a good mentality.

”However, the club’s position is clear: while his situation is unclear, he cannot play. If Neymar’s situation became clear tomorrow, then he could play.”

It is still unclear if Neymar will be able to secure a move away from PSG, and time is running out for the Brazilian with the window due to close on September 2.
