Reports claim PSG are ready to trigger Neymar’s £195million buyout clause.

If rumours are to be believed then Barcelona starman Neymar may move to french outfit Paris Saint-Germain in the next few weeks. The source of the rumour is a Brazilian journalist, Marcelo Bechler of huge Brazilian sports news outfit Esporte Interativo. He claims the french side is ready to pay the €222million(£195million) fee to Barcelona for the signature of Neymar.

Following a report in Sport, Neymar feels his development at Barcelona is being hampered by the presence of Lionel Messi and can’t challenge for a spot in Balon D’ Or as he is not Barcelona’s main man. But in PSG he can be their main man.

The Brazilian will earn £25million a year if he moves to Paris and will link up with fellow international teammates, which includes Dani Alves, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura.

Premier League outfits Manchester City and Manchester United are also interested in the 25-year-old but the transfer fee seems to be a problem for them.

Neymar’s contract with Barcelona expires in 2021 and he has had quite a good time with the Blaugrana’s, he won every major title with them, including LaLiga, UEFA Champions League, Copa Del Rey, Spanish Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. In total Neymar has 105 Goals and 80 assists for Barcelona in 186 appearances since joining them in 2013-14 season.
