Barcelona Confirms Neymar's Movement to PSG

Barcelona have confirmed via a statement released on their website that star forward Neymar wants to leave the club today morning.

The Brazilian informed the Catalan club of his decision today morning after which he was given permission not to attend training. However, Barcelona have maintained that his entire release cause must be deposited in full for him to move.

The statement read, "The player Neymar Jr, accompanied by his father and agent, has informed FC Barcelona this morning of his decision to leave the Club in a meeting held at the Club’s offices.

"Faced with this position, the Club has informed them they refer to the buy-out clause of his existing contract which as of 1 July totals 222 million euros which will have to be deposited in its entirety.

"The player remains under contract at FC Barcelona but with temporary permission to not take part in training sessions."

Neymar is expected to reach Paris and complete his move to PSG within the next day or two. If this goes through, as expected, it will comfortably draft the world record move in which Paul Pogba went to Manhcester United last summer.
