Antoine Griezmann refuses Atleti return citing ’emotional stress’

Barcelona Griezmann

"Paris Saint-Germain notes that Neymar Jr was not in attendance at the agreed time and place", A club statement read.

"Neymar can leave PSG if there is an offer made that suits everybody", said the Brazilian transfer guru.

Neymar failed to turn up for pre-season training with the rest of the squad on Monday just days after Barcelona's president Josep Bartomeu admitted: 'We know Neymar wants to leave but we also know PSG don't want to sell him'.

DAILY POST had reported that Neymar has been consistently linked with a return to Barcelona since joining PSG in 2017 for a world-record deal of £222 million.

"Paris Saint-Germain deplores this situation and will take the appropriate measures resulting from it".

"I do not want to go into details over our conversation".

Leonardo was adamant that Neymar knew that he was due to report for preseason training on Monday but that he has instead committed himself to his institute and sponsors without PSG's permission.

New Zealand lost to England by 119 runs and they now have a net run rate of +0.175. But just a win won't do for Pakistan since they are behind the Kiwis on run rate.

Any return for Neymar would likely require Barca to raise funds through sales.

"Logically a disciplinary process will be opened as Griezmann did not present himself for an official call-up with the club where he is under contract", the Atletico source told ESPN FC on Monday.

Barcelona also introduced Frenkie de Jong, the 22-year-old midfielder who was signed from Ajax earlier this year for 75 million euros ($84 million).

The Wanda Metropolitano club added: "As a effect, Atletico Madrid has instructed the player, his sister and agent and his lawyer, that Antoine Griezmann, in compliance with his contractual obligations with our club, must appear next Sunday in the club's facilities in order to start the pre-season with the rest of his team-mates".

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has warned Neymar and his other highly-paid stars that they must shape-up or ship out, claiming "celebrity behaviour" at the French champions will not be tolerated.

The ex-Barcelona ace missed out on the Copa América due to injury, but he returned to Brazil to watch his side lift the trophy after beating Peru 3-1 at the Maracanã.
