Neymar slams PSG for blocking his exit

Neymar has hit out at Paris Saint-Germain for blocking his exit from the club this summer.

The Brazilian international stated his desire to leave the French champions at the end of the 2018-19 season, and he was heavily linked with return to former side FC Barcelona.

However, the La Liga champions declined to make a bid for the 28-year old, with PSG demanding a fee in the region of €200M, and Neymar has revealed his frustration at the situation.

"Everyone knows that I wanted to leave, and I made that very clear.

"I won't go in details at this time, because if affects the club.

"However, I am still a PSG player and my focus is on them for the season ahead.

"My desire to leave was personal and never based on the club, or the fans.

"I hope this is the last time I talk about this situation this season."

Neymar was whistled by the PSG fans during his first game of the season, as he netted a late winner against rivals Strasbourg.
