La Liga refuse to accept PSG payment for Barcelona striker Neymar


Barcelona striker Neymar

Neymar’s world-record transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain has hit a snag after La Liga refused to accept the release clause for the striker.

Sky Sports News understands Neymar has agreed a five-year deal with the French club and is due in Paris on Thursday or Friday to finalise a record £198m move.

Could Neymar’s move to PSG be the making of him? Here’s why it’s such an important moment in his career.

PSG lawyers arrived at La Liga HQ in Madrid on Thursday morning in an attempt to put the finishing touches on a deal for the 25-year-old Brazil international.

 But a La Liga statement on Thursday read: “We can confirm that the player’s lawyers came to the La Liga offices this morning to deposit the clause and that it has been rejected. That’s all the information we are giving out at this moment.”
The total value of the deal is worth nearly £450m (€500m), which includes wages, bonuses and a buyout clause of £198m (€222m). Neymar has been offered a basic salary of £26.8m-a-year (€30m) after tax, around £515,000-a-week.
