In what amounts to a vicious, third-degree burn, video footage recorded by the Brazilian journalist João Henrique Marques suggests all trace of Neymar has been removed from the Paris Saint-Germain club shop, although the Brazilian’s more deluded fans could conceivably argue the player is simply so popular that everything bearing his name and image has sold out and staff can’t keep up with demand.

The striker’s next destination remains unclear, but the maelstrom of speculation surrounding his future continues to swirl. With both Real Madrid and Barcelona duking it out for his services, le10sport in France says PSG would quite like to get the Catalan club’s striker Ousmane Dembélé in part exchange. Meanwhile in England the Sun reports that Real Madrid will stop hitching their skirts at the Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba if they’re successful in signing the Brazilian and will offer PSG their pick of James Rodríguez, Isco, Raphaël Varane or Marcelo as a sweetener in any deal to bring him to the Bernabéu.
