Newly appointed Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is already said to be holding talks with the club's top players, including Real Madrid's summer target Neymar.

Tuchel who has been out of work since leaving Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in May 2017 onMonday signed a two-year contract with the French club. The 44-year-old replaces Unai Emery, who led PSG to the domestic treble in France this season but did not have his two-year contract extended.

Daily newspaper Süddeutsche reported on Tuchel meeting Neymar on Sunday with both men outlining their intentions for next season over dinner, according to MARCA.

The winger's future remains up in the air while links with Real Madrid persist but PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has recently given his public assurance that Neymar will stay put.

Meanwhile, Tuchel is continuing to prepare for life in Paris by learning French at a language institute in Belgium ahead of his imminent move.
