Paris Saint-Germain's winning streak at the start of the Ligue 1 season was extended to 10 games in the rested Neymar's absence as the reigning champions scored three late goals in a 5-0 win over Amiens.

As reported by El Larguero of Cadena SER, FC Barcelona believe that the player has an agreement signed with the Parisian club that would allow him to leave next summer for 220 million euros. "It is a question that can not be answered because no one has even mentioned it", the vice president told SER Catalunya.

Cardoner said such has not been mentioned by anyone in Barcelona board.

"No one on the current Barca board has talked about a return for Neymar, so it's really a hypothetical question as it's not being looked at".
