Mknewslink.com has learnt that the Brazil international Neymar JNR is set to travel to the French capital to complete his €222 million move after bidding farewell to his Barca team-mates
Barcelona have confirmed that Neymar has been given permission to miss training as his move to Paris Saint-Germain closes in.
The Brazil international arrived at the Blaugrana’s training ground today on Wednesday, only to leave a short while later as he bids farewell to his team-mates.
The club confirmed the development with a short message on Twitter that read: “Neymar Jr. has been given permission not to attend training.”
Neymar will now travel to the French capital to complete his world-record €222 million move to the Ligue 1 outfit.
He is set to earn €30m a year in wages as the club’s marquee name while his father, Neymar Sr., is set for a €40m windfall as part of the deal.
The deal is expected to be finalised by the end of the week, with PSG kicking off their Ligue 1 campaign on Saturday against Amiens.
Barca, meanwhile, are preparing to face Chapecoense in the Joan Gamper Trophy before a double-header against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup ahead of the new Liga season.
