Neymar accepts PSG’s €222m offer, set for Barca exit

Barcelona forward, Neymar, has accepted an offer from French side, Paris Saint-Germain and will move for a world-record transfer fee of €222 million.

Brazil news outlet, Esporte Interativo has added to uncertainty over the player’s future at Barcelona with the report of his imminent move away from Camp Nou.

Marca had reported on Monday that PSG were ready to pay the huge figure to land Neymar, following a report in Sport that he feels his development at Barcelona is being stifled by Lionel Messi.

The Brazil international would be in line to earn €30m a year in Paris and would link up with international teammates, including Dani Alves, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura.

The Manchester giants, City and United are also interest in signing the super forward, although it is claimed the size of the transfer fee could present a problem, even for them.

Sport reported yesterday that Neymar, who is under contract at Barca until 2021, feels unsettled having won every major club honour with the Blaugrana.

According to the outlet, Neymar would like to move on in order to become the main star and challenge for the Ballon d’Or, something he feels is not possible playing alongside Messi.
