While Barcelona could be set to have to pay out on Neymar Sr's loyalty bonus, it is a considerably lower fee than he had originally demanded, a reported €40m. From my perspective, we have Neymar in our team, we count on him and we have to see. We will understand [his decision] in any case. According to ESPN, the Qatari-owned club are said to be so confident of landing Neymar, they are already drawing up plans on how they will unveil him.

Suarez said: "Neymar will give his explanations". "It's true, something did happen, but that's sometimes what happens in training", Barca midfielder Andres Iniesta said. Thanks to video surfacing of the incident, we can see that Neymar was squaring up with Barcelona's newest transfer, ready to throw more than insults. "Our relationship won't change. I want Neymar Jr to stay".

Valverde was also pressed once again on the future of Neymar.

"We'll do so because [PSG's actions] violate the rules of UEFA's Financial Fair Play and the competition rules of the European Union", he told the newspaper.

Man Utd 'close' to completing third summer signing
Manchester United is a huge club, huge responsibility, Premier League is the same. He didn't travel with Chelsea to China for their pre-season tour.

And on Friday night Brazil defender Thiago Silva dropped a hint about potential progress in the French club's pursuit of Neymar, suggesting more information might emerge "soon".

"I think that Liverpool fans should really enjoy him over the next 12 months as if a big money offer does come in at the end of next season and if the player wants to play for Barcelona then there is not really much LFC can do. His playing style suits us and he can only improve with us". But the superstar striker refused to talk about the speculation and just posed for photographs with fans a day after the training spat at Miami's Barry University training complex.

Neymar played in Saturday's 3-2 win over Real Madrid as Barca claimed the International Champions Cup and Valverde remains hopeful of keeping the 25-year-old.
