TOP STORY: PSG ready to pay €222m for Neymar

Marca reckons Paris Saint-Germain are ready to pay a world-record transfer fee of €222 million to sign Neymar, following a report in Sport that he feels his development at Barcelona is being stifled by Lionel Messi.

The Brazil international would be in line to earn €30m a year in Paris and would link up with international teammates, including Dani Alves, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura. Manchester United and Manchester City also are credited with interest, although it is claimed the size of the transfer fee could present a problem, even for them.

Sport writes that Neymar, who is under contract at Barca until 2021, feels unsettled having won every major club honour with the Blaugrana and would now like to move on in order to become the main star and challenge for the Ballon d'Or, something he feels is not possible playing alongside Messi.
