Neymar set to seal PSG move after telling Barcelona team-mates he wants to go

167Neymar is set to complete his move to Paris Saint-Germain after Barcelona confirmed that the forward had told his team-mates he plans to leave.

The Catalan club said the Brazilian informed his team-mates on Wednesday “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 are ready to meet Neymar’s release clause of $350m NZD (£198m), making him the world’s most expensive player. The fee would dwarf the $167m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba last summer. A five-year contract for Neymar has been ready for several days and just needs to be signed.

Barcelona said Neymar left the training ground 30 minutes after arriving on Wednesday.
