Tuchel: I knew Neymar wanted to leave PSG before Copa America

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Neymar wants to leave the French club this summer.

Speaking in an interview, the German coach revealed that he has been aware for some time that the former Barcelona man Neymar is unsettled in French capital amid widespread transfer speculations.

“I knew that he wanted to go before the Copa America, but it’s a topic between the club and Neymar,” Tuchel told RMC Sports.

“It’s all clear between us, now it’s up to the club and Neymar.

“We work together, it’s something between the club and him.”

Barcelona who recently signed Antonio Griezmann are among the clubs to have been linked with a move for the 27-year-old Brazilian.
