Neymar is the World's Most Expensive Player in Transfer Move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain
By SENATUS Magazine | 5 August 2017

Paris Saint-Germain have unveiled the signing of Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record €222 million fee after activating the Brazil international's buyout clause. The Brazilian football star, 25, has been the subject of intense speculation all summer and has finally put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal.

Late doubts about the move had been raised earlier on Thursday when La Liga refused to accept the €222m payment from PSG to trigger the clause, forcing Neymar's legal team to travel to Barcelona to make the payment directly to the club.

Barcelona then confirmed that Neymar's contract had been terminated, and a few hours later, the French club announced the most expensive transfer ever -- more than doubling Manchester United's €105m capture of Paul Pogba from Juventus last year.
