Paris - Neymar is said to be unsettled at the club and to have told relatives that he was having difficulties in France even before he was accused of raping a woman in a Paris hotel in May. The player has denied any wrongdoing.
Paris St Germain are prepared to sell striker Neymar, French media reports said, as chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi warned that irresponsible behaviour from players won't be tolerated anymore.
The Brazil international joined the Ligue 1 side from Barcelona for a world record 222 million euros ($248.91 million) in August 2017.
However, he missed large parts of the 2018-19 campaign through injury and suspension and made just 17 league appearances, scoring 15 goals.
PSG will consider selling the 27-year-old in the forthcoming transfer window if they receive a substantial offer, a report in L'Equipe said on Sunday.
Neymar is said to be unsettled at the club and to have told relatives that he was having difficulties in France even before he was accused of raping a woman in a Paris hotel in May. The player has denied any wrongdoing.
The report comes on the back of strong comments from chairman and CEO Al Khelaifi about the attitude of squad members.
"Players will have to be more responsible than before," he told France Football. "It must be completely different. They will have to do more and work harder. They are not there for their own amusement. If they do not agree, the doors are open - Ciao! I do not want star behaviour anymore."
On Friday, the club announced the return of Leonardo as sporting director, with the Brazilian replacing Antero Henrique in the role six years after his departure.
