Neymar: Brazilian media say Barça winger has accepted PSG offer

Neymar has accepted an offer from PSG, according to the Brazilian publication Esporte Interactivo.

PSG to meet Neymar's release clause

Marcelo Bechler, a journalist at Esporte, has stated that the player will move to Paris in the coming weeks. He wrote on Twitter: "Neymar accepts PSG's proposal. The French club will pay the €200m". 

Neymar's release clause is €222m. PSG would need to meet that figure in order to sign the player. As a result, if the move goes through, the Brazilian would become the most expensive player in history by a considerable margin. 

Barcelona were remaining calm

An atmosphere of calmness and confidence was emanating from within the club itself. On Tuesday, the same day that Esporte broke the story, Jordi Mestre, Barça's sporting vice-president, declared himself "200% sure" that Neymar would stay. 

Mestre's assurance came one day after club spokesman Josep Vives played down rumours of Neymar's departure. The 25-year-old arrived from Santos in 2013.
