Barcelona ac­cept €222m from PSG for Ney­mar

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Barcelona have ac­cepted the pay­ment of Ney­mar’s 222 mil­lion re­lease clause from Paris Sain­tGer­main.

The club re­leased an of­fi­cial state­ment yes­ter­day that read: “On Thurs­day af­ter­noon Ney­mar Jr’s le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives vis­ited in per­son the club’s of­fices and made the pay­ment of 222m in the player’s name with re­gards to the uni­lat­eral ter­mi­na­tion of the con­tract that united both par­ties.

“As such, the club will pass on to UEFA the de­tails of the above op­er­a­tion so that they de­ter­mine the dis­ci­plinary re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that may arise from this case.”

Ear­lier on Thurs­day, La Liga re­jected an at­tempt to pay the re­lease clause at their of­fices in Madrid, lead­ing to France’s Ligue de Foot­ball Pro­fes­sion­nel to call on the Span­ish body to “abide by the rules of FIFA and its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties”.

Ney­mar’s move to PSG now looks set to be com­pleted im­mi­nently, with the Ligue 1 side re­port­edly ready to unveil the Brazil­ian on Friday. can
