Paris Saint-Germain chiefs are said to have become fed up with Brazilian star Neymar both on and off the pitch.
The club’s Qatari owners reportedly feel ‘cheated’ by the forward’s poor performances on the pitch and have grown tired with his glamorous lifestyle off it.
The feeling in Qatar is that Neymar ‘prefers Paris over PSG’ and the level of fury from the club’s shareholders is peaking, according to L’Equipe, via Marca.
The French publication reported: ‘The French club’s shareholders feel they have been cheated out of their money.’
PSG forked out £200million (N108billion) to bring the former Barcelona star to the Parc des Princes in 2017.
Over five seasons in Paris, the club have also had to pay out more than £417,00,000 (N226billion) in expenditure costs related to Neymar’s salary.
Over in Doha, the club’s owners feel that they have failed to see a return on their investment from Neymar on the pitch.
However, with the World Cup held in Qatar in November, PSG, with links to Qatar National Bank and Qatar Airways, have been keen to keep Neymar at the club as a main attraction for the tournament.
And it seems PSG will have to keep paying for him for another season as it is reportedly impossible for him to leave this summer.
L’Equipe claim that only a club such as Newcastle have the wealth to push through a transfer but it is ‘unlikely that the working-class city in the north of England is the place the Brazilian dreams of for the end of his European career’.
