Neymar agrees to join PSG for £450 million deal 

Brazilian superstar, Neymar has agreed five-year contract at Paris Saint-Germain. According to Sky sources, the deal which is worth nearly £450m include wages and bonuses.

Neymar is expected to complete the deal with Paris Saint-Germain and is due in Paris within the next two days to finalise the most expensive transfer in world football history.

The 25-year-old decided to leave Barcelona following talks on holiday near Rio de Janeiro in early July, before he joined the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

He is expected to arrive in the French capital by Friday to complete his move.

It is understood the total value of the deal is worth nearly £450m (€500m), which includes wages, bonuses and a buyout clause of £198m (€222m).

The forward has been offered a basic salary of £26.8m-a-year (€30m) after tax, around £515,000-a-week.

Barcelona confirmed the buyout clause will have to be “deposited in its entirety”.

A source in Spain close to Neymar told Sky Sports News that: “Since he decided to leave, Neymar has had to deal with huge pressure to stay at Barcelona. His teammates wanted him to stay but his decision was made.”

The source added that Neymar had been ,”close” to joining Manchester United in last summer’s transfer market but chose PSG after a further season at Barcelona.

Neymar is expected to join five Brazilian international teammates at PSG, including Dani Alves and Thiago Silva.
