Barcelona superstar Neymar walked out of the team’s training session on Friday after having a bust-up with new signing Nelson Semedo.
In an exclusive video captured by Sportsmail, the Brazilian was seen getting involved in a heated training ground altercation with Semedo, who signed for the Catalan club earlier this month.
According to Daily Mail, Neymar scored during a training match in Miami, before being tangled up in a challenge with Semedo, that led to the pair squaring up to each other. Neymar appeared very furious, and there were some heated arguments before Javier Mascherano intervened to separate the two men.
Semedo returned back to the training instantly, but Neymar remained infuriated by his new Portuguese teammate, and had to be physically held back by Sergio Busquets.
After the incident, the 25-year-old didn’t take part in the training any further, Instead, he threw his training bib in disgust and then kicked two footballs off the pitch in anger, before he was walked back to the training ground by the Barcelona coaching staff.
The footage emerged just hours before Barcelona played their final friendly of the tour against Real Madrid. Also, the clash happened just a day after reports emerged suggesting Neymar had agreed a bumper contract with PSG and the French club were ready to match his £196m release clause to finalise the deal by next week
PSG have been chasing the former Santos prodigy for many months, and there is no doubt that his walk out in the training session now looks to have made the world-record move even more likelier.
