Neymar Jnr to Paris Saint-Germain is happening.
One of the most talked about and outlandish claims of the summer is officially going down; after Neymar told his Barcelona teammates that he wated to leave earlier today.
In a statement to the ESPN FC, an FC Barcelona spokesperson released the following statement:
“Firstly, the player came to training today as expected; secondly, he spoke to his teammates to say goodbye because his intention is to leave the club; and thirdly due to the situation the manager has given him permission not to train.”

With that out the way – expect an official signing announcement within hours from Paris.
Neymar’s release clause is reportedly set at $333 million AUD, a clause which somehow PSG can meet whilst still abiding by the rules of Finanacial Fair Play…
And yes – we originally said that the whole thing was a load of BS, but as things happen. Welcome to the world of Football. We stuffed up.
More to come…
