Neymar Agrees Sensational Five-Year Deal With Paris Saint-Germain

Initially it was first thought to one of the usual dodgy transfer stories, but Neymar to PSG is genuinely actually happening.

Things have really gathered pace in recent days and now Sky Sports are saying that the Brazilian has agreed a five-year contract in a move that is worth £450 million with wages and transfer fee taken into account. Neymar will earn a whopping £515,000-a-week after tax when his sensational move is made official.

The transfer is believed to be worth a world record €222 million (£198 million). He's now the most expensive player in football, beating Paul Pogba's £89 million transfer to Manchester United.

Lionel Messi, a now former teammate of Neymar at Barcelona, took to Instagram to post a tribute to the Brazilian.

The message on Instagram reads (when translated: "It was a huge pleasure to have shared all these years with my friend Neymar I wish you all good luck in this new stage of your life."

The 25-year-old was subject to intense transfer speculation after expressing his desire to leave the Camp Nou, with the French giants prepared to trigger his massive release clause.

His transfer away from Barcelona heightened following the training ground bust-up with new signing Nelson Semedo. Neymar stormed out of a session in Miami after clashing with the young Portuguese defender.

After rising to prominence in his native Brazil with Santos, he attracted plenty of attention with Barcelona eventually securing his services in 2013 as the player put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal.

Neymar has enjoyed a prolific spell in Spain winning the lot and scoring a bagful of goals. He's won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys, not to mention lifting the Champions League in the 2014/15 season.

Following his heroics in Spain, Neymar now sets his sights on conquering France's Ligue 1.

PSG endured a disappointing campaign, last season. AS Monaco pipped them to the domestic league title. With the huge transfers this window, manager Unai Emery will not only target the league title but also the Champions League.

Emery's charges were on the wrong end of the greatest Champions League comeback. Despite taking a four-goal lead into the second half, Barcelona pulled off a sensational performance to beat their counterparts 6-1 on the night which included a starring role from Neymar.
