Barcelona accept Neymar's 222 million euros buyout
Neymar is closing in on a historic move to the French Ligue 1 after La Liga accepted the 222 million euros release clause
Neymar's move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain took a dramatic twist Thursday after Spain's La Liga refused to accept the world record $263 million fee offered by the French club.
"On Thursday afternoon Neymar Jr's legal representatives visited in person the Club's offices and made the payment of 222 million euros 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 can determine the disciplinary responsibilities that may arise from this case," a statement released by Barcelona reads.
