Neymar Sr says that he is "angry" at Paris Saint-Germain for threatening to fine his son as they knew the forward would be absent for the start of pre-season.

Neymar's father has insisted that Paris Saint-Germain were made fully aware that the superstar forward would be late reporting for pre-season training.

PSG issued a statement on Monday condemning the player for failing to show for the first session and vowed to fine him.

The 27-year-old, who is returning to full fitness after sitting out this summer's Copa America through injury, is expected to remain in Brazil until the end of the week to fulfil his commercial duties.

In another twist to the transfer saga that has seen Neymar linked with a return to Barcelona, PSG sporting director Leonardo reiterated yesterday that the Brazilian can leave if a club offers the right amount.

According to Neymar Sr, however, the Parisians knew that their star player would be absent for the start of pre-season.

"We had commercial and institutional actions [to carry out]," he told Fox Sports Brazil. "The Neymar institution has been doing these actions for five years and we've always needed to do them each year.

"PSG, in the presence of president Nasser [Al-Khelaifi], even participated in these actions. I don't understand the reason for the randomness. We're angry, but PSG knew about this situation."

Neymar has scored 44 goals in Ligue 1 since making the move from Barcelona nearly two years ago.
