Barcelona have confirmed they have received a €222m payment from Neymar’s representatives as his world-record move to PSG nears completion.
The club released an official statement on Thursday which read: “This afternoon, legal representatives of Neymar presented themselves at the club offices and have completed, in the name of the player, the payment of €222m as compensation for the unilateral termination of the contract that bound both parties.
“At the same time, the club will pass the details of the operation to UEFA in order that they can address the disciplinary responsibilities that may arise from this case.”
This comes after LaLiga confirmed that they rejected the release clause payment earlier in the day. However, despite the adamant stand of LaLiga, this transfer is expected to go through and Barcelona’s communication indicates that Neymar is all set to become the world’s most costliest player.
