PSG released a statement on Monday regarding Neymar’s unannounced absence from camp, as a move away from Paris seems to be on the menu.

Neymar has been linked with a return to Barcelona and the world record transfer-raiser looks like he’s ready to engineer a move following a terrible year which included plenty of injuries and an allegation of sexual assault.

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

Yeah, that’s threat level red, friends.

There are few teams on Earth that can afford Neymar, who is also 27 and has struggled to stay healthy for club and country.

And any suitor would need swap pieces, too, especially if it’s a club like Real Madrid or Barca who’ve already spent healthy sums this summer.

Again, rousing the rabble, I still think there’s a Pogba-for-Neymar swap possibility…
