Sports Messi Sends Emotional Farewell Message to Neymar

Neymar began his journey to European riches as a poor young Brazilian boy travelling around with his football-playing father

But by the afternoon, workers took down a promotional poster of the Barcelona players to replace it with an identical one. without the image of Neymar.

The Brazilian striker arrived at Barca's training ground on Wednesday to tell team-mates he planned to quit the Spanish giants, with Catalan radio station RAC1 reporting he informed them he was moving to Paris.

He turned up for training at 9am local time (0700GMT) today, but left less than an hour later.

The payment of the buyout clause would dwarf the previous world record transfer of 105 million euros (then $116 million) that Manchester United paid for France midfielder Paul Pogba a year ago. The Neymar deal will more than double that record.

For a while it seemed that the deal might stall over concerns about Financial Fair Play. Most transfer fees are paid in installments.

It is comprehended the aggregate estimation of the five-year bargain is worth nearly £450m (€500m) - including compensation, rewards and a buyout condition of £198m (€222m).

Messi, who is also part of Barcelona's "MSN" strikeforce alongside Neymar and Luis Suarez, paid tribute to his colleague by posting a photo montage of the pair on his official Instagram account.

The cover of this edition of the game has a number of Barcelona stars on it, and front and centre-more prominent even than Lionel Messi-is Neymar.

Since his acquisition, Barcelona has won the Champions League, two La Liga titles and three Copa del Rey trophies.

Dow tops 22000 as Apple rallies; euro strengthens
The euro, coming off its best month since March 2016, reached a new 2 1/2-year high against the ailing dollar. Automaker Ford (F.N) fell 2.41% and General Motors (GM.N) lost 3.39% after they reported lower monthly sales.

La Liga has indicated it would be reluctant to sign off a move for Neymar to PSG. As Qatar stands embroiled in conflict with its Arab neighbors, the nation's sporting endeavors are a play for soft power on the world stage.

Having secured the World Cup in 2022, Doha sees PSG as one of the ways through which the state can achieve its ambitions.

If this agreement goes through, Neymar is on the verge to become the world costliest player.

And former Manchester City boss Mancini, who has enjoyed a busy summer in the transfer market, claims that PSG narrowly beat Zenit to signing Neymar. Neymar is in his prime.

Neymar has also mixed his flair for fancy goals with bouts of immaturity on the field, often needlessly taunting defenders and trying to upstage them with his dribbling skills.

The move will, of course, have a monumental affect on the landscape of European soccer.

"We will not accept this money from a club like PSG", Tebas told Madrid sports daily AS on Wednesday.

Uefa did not immediately reply to a Reuters inquiry on the matter.
