PARIS – Brazilian Neymar will not play in Sunday's season opener for Paris St Germain, the Ligue 1 club said, as speculation continues to swirl over whether or not the forward will remain at the French champions.
"He has not completed a full week with the team and, for that reason, he will not play with us tomorrow," PSG coach Thomas Tuchel told reporters on Saturday, ahead of the league match against Nimes.
Another source at the club said PSG was hoping to make a decision soon regarding Neymar's future in the French capital.
"We are still in talks over moving things forward, to see if he will stay or not," said the source, who added it was important the team "stays focused on the championship".
"Neymar is not in top physical condition," they added.
