Neymar's Father And Agent Is To Have A Meeting With Juventus Sporting Director

Neymar's Father And Agent Is To Have A Meeting With Juventus Sporting Director

Neymar's father and agent is poised to meet with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, with the Brazilian still looking to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Rai Sport journalist Paolo Paganini, via Mundo Deportivo, say that Neymar Sr is set to make the trip to Turin for a "merely informative" meeting.

And though it doesn't quite mean the former Santos star is on his way to the Bianconeri, the report notes that Juve aren't ruling out a potential move despite already spending big this summer.

Three days ago, Sky Sports' Bryan Swanson reported that Neymar has asked to leave PSG after talks with sporting director Leonardo.

It's also claimed PSG tried to convince the most expensive player in world football to change his mind, but the player is adamant he wants to leave the French capital after two seasons in Ligue One.

There have been reports of Neymar's former club Barcelona offering a stunning swap deal in exchange for Neymar - with PSG able choose any three of Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembélé, Samuel Umtiti and Nelson Semedo to head the other way.

Leonardo, in his second spell as PSG's sporting director, says there has been no official approaches but that the Parisiens would be open to selling if the right offer came in for the £198 million man.

"It's clear to everyone [he wants to leave]. But in football, you say one thing today and tomorrow another ... It's amazing but it's like that," he said.

"The position is clear for all. But one thing is concrete today: he still has three years of contract with us. And since we have not received an offer, we cannot discuss anything.

"We have not received any offers. But we had, it's true, very superficial contacts [from Barcelona]. They said they wanted to buy but we were not sellers.

"Neymar can leave PSG if there is an offer that suits everyone. But to date, we do not know if anyone wants to buy it or at what price."

Will Neymar stay at PSG this summer or will be on the move?

Sound off in the comments.
