Neymar will sign for Paris Saint-Germain on Monday, according to L'Équipe. The prestigious sports publication assures that Neymar will undergo a medical revision at the weekend after PSG have officially announced the news at some point this week. The operation will see Barça rake in 222 million euros - a world transfer record.
Neymar to complete publicity engagements in China
Neymar is in China taking part in a series of publicity commitments and despite rumours that he could make the most of a stopover in Qatar on the way back to Spain to undergo a medical, it seems that he will be flying directly from Shanghai to Barcelona to finalize his transfer. Meanwhile, his father and representative has decided to refrain from commenting on the operation.
In the French capital, preparations are underway for Neymar's presentation which is expected to be a huge media event. Furthermore, BeIN Sports, whose CEO is PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi published a tweet on the group's official Twitter account that Neymar has made his mind up: "Neymar has decided to leave Barcelona". L'Équipe, who cite a club source, concur that the Brazilian will be moving to PSG.
Understandably, relations between Neymar and his Barça team mates have cooled; he won't train with the rest of the squad tomorrow which suggests that the recent Stateside Clásico against Real Madrid in Miami was likely his last game for the Azulgranas.
