Neymar Jr, one of the most talented footballers in the world, is set to become the world’s most expensive player as his 198 million pounds deal with PSG is about to become a reality.
In fact, Barcelona said the Brazilian informed players “that he had the intention of leaving the club and seeking his future elsewhere, and the coach has given him permission to leave training.”
PSG, backed by their wealthy Qatari owners are prepared to meet Neymar’s release clause of €222 (£198m).
Even reports show he has already agreed to personal terms ahead of a move which will more than double the world record transfer fee that United paid for Paul Pogba last year (£89m).
A five-year contract for Neymar has been available for several days and just needs to be signed.
The Brazilian has scored 105 goals for Barcelona, helping them to two league titles, three Copas del Rey and a Champions League crown.
