  • Could the potential departure of Neymar ultimately prove to be a positive for Paris Saint Germain and French football

Having been signed for a world-record fee of €222 million (£200m/$263m) two years ago, the Selecao star has helped the club to domestic glory but limited European success.

On one hand, he's been as good as advertised when fit.

He's scored 45 goals between Ligue 1 and the Champions League and displayed outrageous skill along the way.

It seems more likely that Barcelona would make a "real" approach for the former Santos prodigy in 12 months' time, but the financial strength of Europe's top clubs never ceases to amaze.

Paris Saint-Germain are showing no indication of budging in their efforts to keep hold of the most expensive football ever.

"When he says that the best memory of his career is the comeback with Barcelona, which was the biggest disappointment in the history of PSG, it's disgusting". It was an answer that angered and upset many PSG fans.

PSG Sporting director Leonardo confirmed last week that talks regarding Neymar were at an advance stage, although the did not mention any club names. "You know, I did not know him before". And I honestly think he's a good lad with a very good foundation. "As you know, I did not know Neymar well before, but I am getting to know him as the days pass". And on the pitch, he's an awesome player.

In the background of these quotes is still the drama over what happens with Neymar.

While the Parisians will be hoping they can bat away any further enquiries until the transfer window closes on September 2, it remains to be seen how far Barcelona and Madrid would go to get their man.

Neymar, meanwhile, was left out of PSG's clash with Rennes on Sunday, with though coach Thomas Tuchel said his absence was because he hasn't fully recovered from an ankle injury.
