Barcelona forward Neymar "would be open" to Paris Saint-Germain move, says agent

One of Barcelona's biggest stars has a chance to move away, at least that's what his agent says.

Wagner Ribeiro, representative of Brazilian superstar Neymar, spoke in an interview about the possibility of his client leaving the Catalan club in the near future, and he says the one team who could lure the 24-year-old into moving away is French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.

"If PSG show an interest in Neymar, we can discuss it. He feels good in Barcelona. He's loved over there and he's playing for the best team in the world. It's no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.

"But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG - that's also a dream for every player.

"We'll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract. A contract can also be terminated provided that the release clause is paid. It's huge: 193m euros. But I don't think that would be an insurmountable problem for PSG."

This is not the first time -- or the last -- Neymar has been or will be linked with a move to PSG. And indeed, Paris is a beautiful city, the club needs a big name replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Neymar could probably be the highest paid footballer on the planet, have fun in a non-competitive league while still getting to play Europe's biggest in the Champions League.

There is only one problem: Neymar's father and the rest of his agents might love money more than they care about the player, but the player is not going anywhere.
