Neymar has told PSG he wants to leave this summer, says Sky Sports News' chief reporter Bryan Swanson

Neymar has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club, Sky Sports News understands.

Neymar, whose club future has been the source of intense speculation, confirmed his intention to leave the French capital after talks with PSG's sporting director Leonardo earlier on Monday.

Sky sources understand PSG tried to convince Neymar to change his mind and the Brazil international did not tell his club where he would like to move.

PSG have yet to make a formal comment but Sky Sports News has been told talks continue over a potential return to Barcelona for the 27-year-old.

The Transfer Talk panel discuss the prospect of Neymar returning to the Nou Camp if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain

Barcelona are yet to table a formal offer for Neymar but Sky sources understand the Catalan club understand they will have to include players as part of any prospective deal for the forward.

Philippe Coutinho could potentially be part of an offer for his compatriot but Sky Sports has been told no proposals - neither for a loan move nor a permanent departure - have been put to the former Liverpool midfielder by Barcelona or any other club.

The sale of Neymar this summer would not be a huge loss to Paris Saint-Germain, according to French football expert Jonathan Johnson

However, it is understood Coutinho will not be departing the Nou Camp until Neymar's circumstances in Paris become clearer.
