PSG ready to pay €190m for Neymar – agent

Paris Saint-Germain were willing to spend €190million to land Neymar in the transfer window, according to one of the Barcelona star’s representatives.


Wagner Ribeiro claims the French champions had also put together a deal which would have seen Neymar earn approximately €767,000 (£650,000) a week.

PSG deny both claims but Ribeiro insists Barca rejected the offer and instead persuaded Neymar to sign a new five-year contract.

“He was very close to joining PSG. There he would have earned €40m a year, free [after tax]. PSG were ready to pay the buy-out clause of €190m,” Ribeiro told ESPN Brasil.

“Neymar was also close to a move to Manchester United. But he renewed his contract for less money with Barcelona, because he wanted to stay in Barcelona.”

A PSG source denied Ribeiro’s claim in L’Equipe, however, telling the French daily: “It’s totally false.

“With employer contributions on top, that salary would have cost more than €60m a year. It’s obscene. Neymar used us to strengthen his hand with Barcelona.”

Neymar joined Barca from Santos in 2013 in a controversial deal and has gone on to win two La Liga titles, the Copa del Rey twice and the Champions League in 2015.

The 24-year-old’s contract in Catalonia, which runs through to 2021, has a €200m buyout clause after the first year, rising to €222m the following year and €250m by 2019.
