Neymar has been included in the Brazil squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia.
Brazil are nine points clear at the top of the standings with four matches to go.
Commenting on Neymar’s move, Tite said: “He is looking for a new challenge, a new club and career plan.
“The essence is to enjoy football. Two items are fundamental: the supporters and the player.
“Allow him to be happy in his club, to adapt and develop to his best.”
Neymar is joined in the front line by Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino and Taison, while Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho is also included.
