As rumours of a Barcelona’s Brazillian forward, Neymar’s potential move to Ligue 1 swirl, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have announced press conferences for Tuesday night.
The La-Liga giants and the Ligue 1 outfit both announced simultaneous press conferences, sparking speculations that PSG, who have been lining up a world record deal for the Brazillian, have triggered the 25-year-old £196m release clause (€222m).
While PSG’s briefing is due to commence at 11 pm French time, Barcelona’s will start half an hour later.
Yesterday, reports from Europe claimed Neymar had agreed terms with Paris Saint-Germain over a six-year contract and would earn a mouth-watering £500,000 per week.
Neymar’s father was said to have recently met with PSG sporting director Antero Henrique and board member Sophie Jordan to finalise the transfer according to Carlos Carpio of Marca.
Carpio suggested the deal will go through when PSG “deposit the €222m of [Neymar’s] termination clause, which it appears will be done via the personal sponsorship of Qatar.”
