PSG president, Al-Khelaifi speaks on Kylian Mbappe leaving club

These injury issues, combined with Neymar's apparent negative attitude amid strong transfer rumours, has seen PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi grow exhausted of the world's most expensive player. "It must be completely different", he declared.

"We don't leave the door open or closed", he said.

"I do not want star behaviour anymore".

Arsenal have reached an agreement with 18-year-old French defender William Saliba as the club eyes a long-term replacement for Laurent Koscielny.

Neymar has been plagued by controversy in France.

Neymar is on the market and everything seems to suggest that it will be Real Madrid or Barcelona who sign him, meaning that the ball is in the court of Florentino Perez and Josep Maria Bartomeu.

"It's a disgrace. They get four guys who don't understand football to watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV", he wrote.

In the kind of roundabout move that fuels the transfer market, if Barcelona were to move for Neymar it could take Griezmann to Paris, where the club would be keen to bring together the front two of the French national team in the nations' capital. Instead, his time in Paris will be remembered overseas more for his antics, injuries, and of course, the incident with the fan at the Coupe de la Ligue final.

He is given a further two-game ban while the Brazilian press brand him a "coward" and a "rebellious teenager".

Reports from France indicate that Paris Saint-Germain are opening to selling Neymar this summer.

Asked about Neymar, who, like Mbappe, has a contacted until 2022, Al-Khelaifi added: "I want players willing to give everything to defend the honour of the jersey and to join the club project".

According to the report Neymar would cost Barca €100 million plus three players, with Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Rakitic the most likely candidates.

Neymar is said to be unsettled at the club and has told relatives that he was having difficulties in France.

A broken foot has sidelined him for extended periods over the two campaigns, and forced him to miss parts of both of PSG's last two round of 16 ties, with Real Madrid and Manchester United, which saw the French giants eliminated. If last season did not work, it was my fault first.
