Neymar: Paris St-Germain must pay £198m ‘in full’ to sign Barcelona forward
Barcelona have told Paris St-Germain they must pay a world record 222m euro (£198m) fee “in full” before Neymar can join them.
The Brazil international arrived at training on Wednesday with his father and representative, and told the Spanish club he wanted to leave.
He was then given permission by Barca manager Ernesto Valverde not to train and to “sort out his future”.
PSG are understood to be ready to pay the 25 year old release clause.
The latest development comes two days after it emerged Barca were ready to push for a Financiial Fair Play investigation if PSG signed Neymar.
That came after La Liga president Javier Tebas threatened, in an interview with Mundo Deportive, a legal response against the former Ligue 1 champions if European football’s governing body failed to take action.
He also said PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had been made aware of the Spanish league’s intentions.
Team-mate Lionel Messi has paid tribute to the 25-year-old. He wrote in an Instagram post: “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.”
Neymar responded to the post saying: “Thank you brother.. I will miss you uncle!”
