Barcelona’s Neymar on verge of £198m Paris Saint-Germain move
Barcelona forward Neymar looks set to complete a £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days.
The transfer was first reported over two weeks ago which appears to have culminated in Neymar leaving Barcelona’s training ground today after saying goodbye to the squad.
Barcelona has threatened to report Paris Saint-Germain for breaching Financial Fair Play rules if the deal is completed but the Ligue 1 runners-up are ready to meet the £198m release clause for the Brazilian international.
Lionel Messi has paid tribute to his teammate in a post on Instagram.
“It was a great pleasure to have shared all these years with you my friend Neymar. I wish you good luck in this new stage of your life. See you tomorrow,” he said.
Neymar has scored 103 goals since joining Barcelona in 2013 for £48.6m from Brazilian club Santos.
