Neymar has decided he won't leave Paris Saint-Germain until maybe after the upcoming FIFA World Cup. The forward is believed to be under massive pressure to leave the club this summer.

No suitors have been found for the Brazilian, mainly because of his astronomical wages. His wages aside, it is said that Neymar has no interest whatsoever in leaving the club this summer.

He recently received a boost when PSG's new boss Christophe Galtier confirmed that Neymar was a huge part of his plan. The former Lille and Nice boss has indicated that he will come up with a formula to use all of his star forwards.

The genesis of Neymar's problems at the French giants is believed to have started when he fell out with the club's President, Nasser Al-Khellaifi. The club wants to reduce its huge wage bill. PSG currently has the top three best-paid players in the world after renewing Mbappe's contract earlier in the summer.

Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe disagree over Neymar's future at PSG

Previously, Sports Brief had reported that new reports had indicated that Paris Saint-Germain's stars Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe have clashed over the imminent future of Neymar.

PSG are said to have put Neymar on its transfer list as the club seeks to balance its books. The Brazilian has fallen out of favour with the club's chiefs. Messi and Mbappe have been drawn into the saga. The former wishes to have his former teammate at Barcelona continue at Paris, while Mbappe has no issue with Neymar leaving.

Mbappe recently signed a whopping contract at PSG that is believed to have given him the right to have a say in the club's major decisions. Messi still remains an important figure, given the mammoth success he has achieved over time.
