Neymar snubs PSG to hang out with Tom Holland and play late-night poker at Monaco GP
With an overhaul of operations at Parc des Princes expected in the summer, headlined by the likely departure of Lionel Messi, the Brazil international is another who could find himself heading for the exit.
Fans have already protested against his behaviour by gathering and chanting outside his house – an action that has been widely condemned.
The dissatisfaction with Neymar’s attitude, though, will only have heightened following the Brazilian attacker being pictured playing poker in Monaco as opposed to celebrating with his teammates following their 1-1 draw against Strasbourg, which clinched the Ligue 1 title.

Neymar was spotted partying at the Red Bull Energy Station on Saturday prior to Sunday’s Monaco GP. BILD saw the 31-year-old playing poker until the early hours of Sunday, with the German publication reporting that he did not leave until 2am.
His image was also posted on the social media channels of the Red Bull team, with Neymar seen alongside Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, who previously asked PSG’s Kylian Mbappe to sign for Tottenham, in the pitlane along with engineers.

Monaco turns into a hive of celebrity activity on the weekend Formula 1 rolls into town and is the place to be seen – as Neymar, whose partner Bruna Biancardi lives in the principality, clearly decided on Saturday.
This call, though, will be looked upon with a dim view at PSG. The club’s other injured players, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Achraf Hakimi, all travelled with the team to celebrate their latest title.
Under contract until 2025, PSG face a problem in offloading Neymar this summer due to his high wages, although Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with a move – while Arsenal has been cited as a destination he would “love”.
