PSG played a crucial game on Saturday at Strasbourg when they faced the possibility of winning or delaying their coronation as Ligue 1 champions. They did enough, drawing that matchup 1-1 and lifting the 11th title in the history of Paris Saint-Germain. Sadly, Neymar wasn't there to watch it unfold.

The Brazilian striker, who's been out of action since February due to an injury, decided to make skip the trip to Strasbourg and instead fly to Monaco to attend the F1 Grand Prix staged there on Sunday, one day after the title-clinching game.

It seems the "travel issues" mentioned by Christophe Galtier didn't bother Neymar too much. The manager of PSG said on Friday that players with moving problems, meaning injured players with potential physical issues that might affect their recoveries, were allowed to skip the trip for the game at Strasbourg.

That includes Neymar, of course, but how can he explain not being able to "move" to root for PSG live on location at Strasbourg... while attending a motorsports event and roaming the place less than 24 hours after that?

While his teammates were celebrating their title victory in Strasbourg, Neymar headed to the Principality to indulge in some Formula 1 action and surely have a great time judging by the pictures and videos captured and shared from Monaco.

Neymar was spotted in the posh city along with his partner Bruna Biancardi, who was also present in the event. Guess what? Neymar even made a pit stop and hung out with the Red Bull F1 Team mechanics, but not his actual PSG teammates a day earlier.

Speaking of other PSG players, it's worth mentioning that Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marco Verratti, who played in the match against Strasbourg, also made an appearance at the Formula 1 event.

With his future in the French capital all but clear, Neymar's definitely not helping his case to stay put in Paris. However, the first thing that must happen for a potential move away from PSG to become a reality is to have suitors for the South American somewhere from Europe.

After some fans in Paris targeted Neymar earlier this month and popped up in front of his home, and with a contract running until 2027, there might be a conflict between what the player/fans want, and what other clubs around Europe are willing to pony up to extract him from the capital and what PSG consider is a fair offer for their superstar player.

At the end of the day, though, both PSG (on Saturday) and Neymar (on Sunday) had a good time at Strasbourg and Monaco so it can be said that everybody won the weekend.

We'll see if PSG applies further measures on this unsanctioned, unauthorized trip to the Principality, though, as they already did when Lionel Messi flew on his own to Saudi Arabia causing a one-week ban from all activities.
