Various sources have linked Neymar with a return to Barcelona, with a recent report from the Mail stating he was set for showdown talks with PSG over his situation as he looked for a dream return to the Nou Camp.

Tuchel has now commented on the situation, confirming that the player wants to leave and that he let him know this in a conversation earlier in the summer, before the recent Copa America tournament.

The German tactician said the transfer situation was now down to the player and the club, suggesting all parties will work together to find a solution.
