Barcelona have agreed to sell Neymar Jr. to Paris Saint-Germain, sources with knowledge of the situation told Barça Blaugranes. The French club will pay the full €222 million release clause to complete the deal, and the official announcements from both clubs are expected for this week.

Neymar is currently in China for promotional events involving Barcelona and Nike, and on the way back from China he will land in Qatar for medicals and contract signing with PSG. The Brazilian will earn a bigger salary with the Paris club and will receive an immense signing bonus.

The first report claiming Neymar had accepted an offer to join PSG came out two weeks ago, and for the past fortnight we’ve had many developments to this story, but never an official word from Neymar himself confirming or denying the rumors. We learned that he told his teammates about his decision to leave last weekend, and last Saturday’s El Clásico in Miami was indeed Neymar’s final match as a Blaugrana.
