PSG sporting director Leonardo says there has been "no concrete offer" for Neymar amid interest from Barcelona.
Speaking following PSG's 1-1 pre-season friendly draw against FC Nuremburg on Saturday, Leonardo said nothing had changed in Neymar's situation over the last ten days.
- 'Messi driving Barcelona's Neymar pursuit'
- 'Barca's Neymar proposal is car boot'
- Barca offer £90m plus players for Neymar
Leonardo said: "There is nothing different, nothing at all. There are no concrete offers for Neymar. He has a contract with us and is our player.
"I repeat, there is no concrete offer. It's been the same situation for ten days."
Also speaking after the game PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel, added: "It's a matter between the club and Neymar.
"He's training with the team for the first time tomorrow, so far he's only trained individually, and he's going to China."
Sky in Germany reported on Thursday that Barcelona had offered PSG £90m plus two players for former player Neymar from a list who could be included in any deal.
That list, Sky Germany said, consisted of Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, Malcom and Samuel Umtiti.
Sky Sports News has been told Neymar wants to leave PSG after talks with Leonardo and this was confirmed on July 16 by Tuchel.
PSG have tried to convince Neymar to change his mind and stay in France, but it is also understood that PSG would want players plus money as part of any deal for the Brazilian forward.
Previously Leonardo had said Neymar could leave the French side if there is an offer that "suits all parties", adding that it is "clear to everyone" what the Brazil star's desire is and admitted there had been "superficial" contact with Barcelona.
Leonardo also revealed that Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye was "one of the possibilities" to add to PSG's squad but also added that the club was only "looking quietly" for new players.
