But newspaper AS claim PSG are plotting a different way to the Brazil ace - and that Neymar is open to talks.

PARIS SAINT-GERMIAN are willing to pay Neymar's £195MILLION release clause, according to reports.

Returning to training on Friday, at the Ciutat Esportiva, were Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar, Andres Iniesta and a few more Barca players.

The contract Neymar signed in October 2016 runs through June 2021 and initially included a €200 million release clause, which has since risen to €222 million and will climb to €250 million next season.

The Brazilian and his representatives plan to cash in on Barcelona's interest in Marco Verratti, to broker a move for the former Santos player to the Parc des Princes. He signed a contract at Barca only previous year and is one of the highest-paid footballers on the planet.

Neymar has developed into one of the best forwards in Europe during his time with Barcelona but Sport believe he is becoming uncomfortable at playing second fiddle to Messi, with his advisors telling him to seek a move elsewhere in order to become a club's main man.

"That's not going to happen", he said when asked if he could imagine Barca without Neymar.

"He is fantastic and is happy with the club and we are delighted with him".

'It's not our intention to lose players, certainly not good players.

"At this club it is important to win and play well and we have the players to achieve that - our matches must be a spectacle".

Barca missed out on La Liga to Real Madrid last season and have been knocked out at the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League two years running.

FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique on Thursday affirmed that the club will never change its style of play and go for boring football even if results may not go their way.
