It looks as though Neymar will become a Paris Saint-Germain player next week, and his teammates know it. According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, the Brazilian superstar has informed his closest friends in the Barcelona squad that he has decided to leave the club this summer and will join PSG as soon as the French club agrees to pay his €222 million release clause.
Knowing what we know about Barça, Neymar’s closest teammates are Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, Gerard Piqué, Andrés Iniesta. Those four are without a doubt the biggest leaders of the dressing room, and if they know about Neymar’s decision, then they’ll inform the rest of the team and everyone is aware of it by now.
Always according to the report, Neymar is yet to inform the Barça board about his decision, but he will meet with president Josep Maria Bartomeu after the United States tour to tell him he is moving to Paris once the release clause is activated.
It really seems like this Saturday’s El Clásico is Neymar’s last game for Barcelona. His teammates know it, and the board will know it soon.
