Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have accepted FC Barcelona's proposal of including a player as part-exchange in a deal for Neymar but, according to "L'Equipe", they want two players and at least €100m in cash.
Neymar has been heavily linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid, though reports imply that PSG seems to be more in favor of Barcelona.
Speaking to RMC Sport, Leonardo insists little progress has been made on agreeing to his return to the Camp Nou.
"It's wrong. He is not removed from the group", the former Brazil worldwide said. He is following a personalised fitness programme.
"He is a player of Paris Saint-Germain, there is still three years of his contract in Paris, we must not forget", Leonardo added. We have to analyse everything, we need to make sure everything is sorted before he can play again.
The Brazil global, who missed the Copa America due to injury, was absent for last week's Ligue 1 opener against Nimes, during which some supporters protested against the forward.
"He's made mistakes", Leonardo acknowledged.
The same specialists are said to have been suspicious that the reported ankle sprain that ruled Neymar out of this summer's Copa America was actually a cover story to hide another fracture of the same toe. Over time, I have got to know him.

"I'm outside all these matters and focusing on coaching the team, I have enough to think about ahead of the game without thinking about players from other teams", Valverde told reporters on Thursday.
On Sunday, there were very tough reactions at the Parc des Princes against him and a lot of anger from the fans... "And on the pitch, he's an wonderful player".
There are discussions for his future as you know today but there is nothing advanced.
