Neymar skips training ahead of PSG switch

Neymar’s proposed transfer to Paris Saint-Germain is looking more likely after Barcelona gave him permission to skip training.

PSG are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign the Brazilian as his agent Wagner Ribeiro posted a picture of the Eiffel Tower on Twitter.

Barca say that Neymar told teammates on Wednesday "that he had the intention of leaving the club and seeking his future elsewhere, and the coach has given him permission to leave training".

The Parisians will have to meet Neymar’s release clause of €222, with reports claiming that a five-year-deal is ready to be signed.
