Paris, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th Aug, 2019 ) :Neymar was left out of Paris Saint-Germain's third consecutive Ligue 1 match on Sunday as his employers await a resolution to the Brazilian's protracted transfer saga.
But the club's Qatari owners and sporting director Leonardo have sidelined him as the uncertainty over his future continues to dominate their early season landscape.
In the squad list published ahead of the 1900 GMT kick-off Neymar was marked down as "absent".
Tuchel when quizzed about his wantaway forward on Saturday told reporters: "He can play (against Toulouse) if the situation between him and the club is clear.... Today it's not clear, perhaps tomorrow it will be".
Pressed, the German added Neymar was "ready to play" but the final decision rested with the club's sporting director.
"Perhaps you have to speak to Leonardo," he suggested. "Neymar's had a good week (training) with all the squad, a week with a lot of work and intensity."The European transfer window closes on September 2. Whether Neymar figures in PSG's fourth league outing next Friday at Metz could be up to the negotiators.
