Neymar has been named in Paris-Saint Germain PSG 33-man squad for an upcoming tour of China, despite heavy speculation regarding his future.
The 27-year-old, who has been linked to a move to Barcelona and recently a shock move to Real Madrid, failed to show up to PSG’s pre-season training on July 8, for now he remains a PSG man.
The club threatened to take “appropriate action” against the world’s most expensive player, who said he had stayed in Brazil to attend a charity five-a-side football tournament run by his foundation.
PSG land in Shenzhen, China on Wednesday, and will play friendlies against Inter Milan in Macau on Saturday and Sydney FC in Suzhou on July 30.
Their first competitive match of the season will be against Rennes in Shenzhen on August 3 in the Champions Trophy, the traditional curtain-raiser to the French campaign.
PSG are hoping to become the most successful club in the history of the Trophee des Champions.
