New PSG boss Christophe Galtier has admitted he is keen to keep Neymar at the club this summer but insisted the final decision is not in his hands alone.

Galtier replaced sacked Mauricio Pochettino in the hot seat this summer and was quick to lay the law on his squad, saying those not included in his plans would be sold.

However, superstar Neymar is likely to feature heavily again next season – although the tricky striker will play his football depends on the hierarchy.

“Yes, I was clear. After that, I repeat, there are many things in this area that I cannot control,” Galtier told L’Equipe when asked about the issue.

The 55-year-old has also outlined his plans to shrink his ranks, with the Ligue 1 champions’ first-team made up in part of a host of injured players.

Galtier added: “We have 26 or 27 players apart from the goalkeepers, that’s huge.

“There are players for whom the places are reduced. We spoke to them. It wasn’t an easy exercise.

“They are players we have to respect. We start this season with 21 field players and a few youngsters.

“The big clubs that perform at a very high level are the ones that manage to integrate the best young people into an experienced and quality workforce.”

One star who could leave in this window is defender Presnel Kimpembe.

Galtier is also now interested in reducing the size of his roster, with several outcasts on the way out

Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel are said to be interested in the centre-back as they seek reinforcements following the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.

But Galtier has said he and his player “laughed” at the speculation.

“I have read everything that has been said about Kimpembe. We even laughed about it together. I like him – he’s a great centre-back but I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Galtier said.
