NEYMAR PAYS 222MIL EUROS TO FREE HIM FROM BARCELONA AND PAVE WAY FOR PSG MOVE

Neymar is now free to complete his world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain after Barcelona confirmed on Thursday his 222 million euro ($260 million) buyout clause had been received by the Catalan club.

“On Thursday afternoon Neymar Jr’s legal representatives visited in person the club’s offices and made the payment of 222 million euros in the player’s name with regards to the unilateral termination of the contract that united both parties,” Barca said in a statement.

The move had been held up by the Spanish league’s refusal to accept the cheque presented by Neymar’s lawyers at their Madrid headquarters earlier on Thursday.
