Neymar involved in training ground bust-up

Neymar has been involved in a training ground bust-up with a team-mate Nelson Semedo as rumours about his future at Barcelona continue to swirl.

The Brazil star has been linked with a world record €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain, with reports circulating that his chances of leaving Barcelona this summer are 90 per cent.

He is currently on tour with Barcelona in the United States and scored the only goal in their 1-0 win over Manchester United in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.

Barcelona have since moved on to Miami, where the incident involving Neymar took place in the run-up to their clash with Real Madrid on Saturday.

He is seen running towards new signing Semedo and the pair appear to kick one another before Javier Mascherano and Sergio Busquets step in and separate the pair.

Training was halted because of the incident and Neymar is then seen taking off his training bib before storming off the pitch, kicking a ball as he leaves.

It has been widely reported Neymar wants to leave Barcelona as he has become increasingly frustrated at “playing second fiddle” to Lionel Messi.

“Only a miracle will keep him, he really has made up his mind to leave,” a source in Spain close to Neymar told the media earlier in the week.

“At the age of 25, he thinks it’s his time to win the Ballon d’Or,” the source added. “He believes he can be the best player in the world at another big club.”
