A video has surfaced online which appears to show that all merchandise linked with Neymar has disappeared from PSG’s official club shop.
The controversial star has declared his intentions to leave this summer, with Real Madrid and ex-club Barcelona reportedly interested in taking him back to La Liga.
Neymar didn’t play in PSG’s 3-0 win over Nimes in their first game of the Ligue 1 season, but supporters showed their dissatisfaction with the player by singing X-rated chants and holding up an offensive banner .
It appears the club have decided to take action by removing all traces of Neymar from their shop.
The video posted on Twitter by Brazilian journalist Marcelo Bechler shows the shop with clear images of players such as Kylian Mbappe and Edison Cavani displayed. However, there is no sign of Neymar.
Considering the obvious marketability of the 27-year-old it is somewhat surprising that he is not on display anywhere, and it perhaps could lead to further speculation that he is bound for a summer move.
With both the Spanish and French transfer window remaining open until 2 September there is still time to strike a deal for the player, with the latest rumour being that PSG are considering selling Neymar back to Barcelona and taking attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho off the Catalan club’s hands in return.
Neymar appeared to burn his bridges with PSG when he failed to return on time for pre-season training from Brazil, although he and his party claimed he had been given permission by the club to stay in his native country longer.
Since his world-record breaking £198m to Paris in 2017 Neymar has recorded an impressive goals-to-game ratio, having found the net 51 times in 58 appearances in all competitions.
However, injuries and off-the-field issues have meant his spell in France has largely been an unhappy one, and Neymar is allegedly desperate to move on this summer.
