According to Report from Spain that the Brazilian said goodbye to teammates and club confirm that the forward is leaving.
The young Brazilian striker Neymar Jr is said to be leaving Barcelona, the Catalan club confirmed on Wednesday, as a radio report said he was moving to French team Paris Saint-Germain.
He arrived at the team’s training ground on Wednesday to tell teammates he was moving to Paris, Catalan radio RAC1 reported. The Brazilian striker left the training area minutes later, it added, after being given permission by the club to not take part in the session.
Having develop into one of the world finest players and finished third in the 2015 Ballon d’Or vote, Neymar signed a new Barcelona contract to 2021 in October in which his buy-out clause was raised to €222 million (Dh966.6m)
Barcelona tweeted shortly after the radio report that Neymar, who has been with the Spanish club since June 2013, did not train on Wednesday with the permission of the coach.
In another twitter posting restricted to the sports press, the club said he was leaving but gave no further details. That tweet was confirmed to Reuters by a spokeswomen.
A PSG spokesman declined to comment.
The former Santos player has a contract with Barca until 2021, but PSG, deposed by Monaco as French champions last term, appear prepared to activate his release clause.
That would make Neymar the most expensive signing in history, more than doubling the record fee Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba last summer.
In his three seasons in Catalunya, Neymar has helped Barca win LaLiga twice, the Champions League once, three Copa del Reysand the FIFA Club World Cup.
Neymar signed for Barcelona from Brazilian side Santos for €57.1 million, although it was later revealed the cost was closer to €100 million.
