Neymar: Why I miss Barcelona duo Messi and Suarez

Neymar has reportedly told his PSG team-mates that he won't return to the club after the World Cup.

Reports have constantly linked the Brazilian with a move away from the French giants, with some even claiming he is set to return to Spain with Real Madrid. And it is now being reported that he has told club mates that he would not be returning to the club after the World Cup.

Last year Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in a world-record €222million (£198million) move but he is now intent on leaving the French club, as reported by AS.

PSG have just two league fixtures remaining this season — at home to Rennes on Saturday night and away to Cannes next week — and, given his current lack of match fitness, there is a possibility Neymar may have already played his last game for the club.

Despite his campaign having been hampered by injury, Neymar has still managed to produce some impressive displays since joining PSG, as evidenced by his 28 goals and 19 assists in 30 games across all competitions.

When at his best, the 26-year-old is capable of tormenting defenders with his trickery and he has already won three trophies with PSG, experiencing glory in Ligue 1, the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France.
