Brazilian forward Neymar wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has struggled for fitness this season, making only 20 league appearances with an ankle injury ruling him out since February. And after angry PSG fans protested outside Neymar’s house demanding he left the club, Neymar has opened the door to a possible departure this summer.
Is Neymar set for summer exit?
According to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, Neymar has been left disappointed by the actions of some supporters and been made to be a scapegoat after a disappointing season, despite not being able to play for the Parisians since February after he underwent surgery. Statistically, however, Neymar has performed well for PSG this term, scoring 13 goals and assisting 12 in his 20 league matches.

Just like PSG teammate Lionel Messi, Neymar has been offered an escape route with an unnamed Saudi Arabian club offering the Brazilian a deal at the end of the season. However, like Messi, Neymar’s preference would be to stay in Europe but has not ruled out any potential move just yet.
