Paris Saint Germain has been banned from selling Neymar by the Emir of Qatar.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has told PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that the Brazilian forward must not leave the club, despite continued interest from Real Madrid. Los Blancos are allegedly eyeing a move for Neymar, who Real see as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, although future bids for the 26-year-old could now be ruled out.
Neymar, who moved from Barcelona to the French capital last summer in a £198m deal, has scored 19 goals in 20 Ligue 1 starts for Unai Emery's side.

These fears over Neymar's future at Paris Saint-Germain have led to club owner Nasser Al Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique, to go to Brazil this week to speak with the player according to French media reports.
According to Telefoot, the trip is to see at first hand Neymar's physical condition and then also to find out if he really intends to see out his contract that runs until 2022.
The winger has been ruled out ahead of PSG's Champions League defeat against Madrid with an ankle injury, however, with no date set for his return to action.
