Neymar Jr says that he wants to leave FC Barcelona, the Catalan club confirmed on Wednesday (August 2), as a radio report said the Brazilian striker – whose buy-out transfer value is 222 million euros ($263 million) – was moving to French team Paris Saint-Germain.

He arrived at Barcelona’s training ground on Wednesday to tell team mates he was moving to Paris, Catalan radio RAC1 reported. The Brazilian striker left the training area minutes later, it said.

Neymar signed a new Barcelona contract to 2021 in October in which his buy-out clause was raised to more than double the biggest transfer fee in soccer history.
