Neymar agrees on transfer deal with PSG, will sign by Tuesday, report says
Neymar has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer as he looks for a new challenge, News reported.
And according to French broadcaster RMC, PSG have now reached an agreement with the Brazil international over personal terms, News added.
Neymar’s father has been in discussions with PSG and is said to have agreed a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 club, which will see him earn almost £27million a season after tax, according to News.
PSG are expected to smash the world transfer record and meet Neymar’s mammoth £199m release clause as the two clubs are yet to agree on a fee, added the News.
According to News, RMC add that PSG could complete the signing of Neymar as soon as Tuesday.
PSG boss Unai Emery is desperate to improve his front line this summer after missing out on the Ligue 1 title to Monaco last season. The likes of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and Monaco hitman Kylian Mbappe have also been linked with moves to PSG, but Neymar is said to be their priority signing, News said.
Neymar added fuel to the speculation yesterday after he stormed out of a training session following a bust-up with new Barcelona signing Nelson Semedo, added News.
