Neymar To Quit Barca and Join PSG in World Record £190Million Move
Brazil superstar Neymar is reportedly on the verge of a sensational £190million world record transfer to join Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.
Neymar, 25, has reportedly accepted an offer from longtime suitors PSG, and will finalise the deal in the coming weeks, Sun writes.
The former Brazil captain came close to joining the French powerhouse last summer, and will now move up north from Catalonia in a move that’s likely to cause seismic shocks at the Camp Nou.

Persistence was the name of the game for PSG in their pursuit of Neymar, and it appears Unai Emery has finally got the marquee player he needs to firmly establish the club as elites of European football.
Neymar put in a terrific shift last season for the Catalans and wrapped the campaign by scoring in the final of the Copa del Rey for the third year on the trot.
His most memorable performance came in the Champions League last 16 clash against PSG, incidentally, in which he inspired Barca to a 6-1 victory after trailing 4-0 from the first leg.
Neymar has spent four seasons at Barca after his switch from Santos in 2013, forming a devastating attacking trio alongside fellow South Americans Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
But he’s always been the subject of a move away from the Camp Nou as the club struggles to match the trio’s mammoth wage bill.
Should the move be confirmed, he is likely to start on the left of an attacking trident featuring another pair of South Americans – Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria.
