Neymar tells Barcelona team-mates of his intention to join PSG

Brazilian superstar Neymar has informed several of his Barcelona team-mates of his intention to join PSG, according to Le Parisien.

To such an extent in fact, that several Barca players are resigned to the fact that Neymar will be joining PSG this summer.

Certain Barcelona representatives are also convinced of Neymar’s imminent departure and appear to already be in reactionary mode, which could explain a concrete £72m bid that has been made for Liverpool attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

PSG’s dream appears, in an incredible turn of events, to possibly becoming a reality, so long as they can stump up the €222m release clause money.

GFFN has uncovered that Yves Leroy, the individual partially responsible for this Le Parisien scoop, is the Lyon based correspondent who had an excellent relationship with Samuel Umtiti before the French international moved to Barcelona.

This link, possibly making Samuel Umtiti or someone close to him the source of the information, would explain why a French paper had inside information on chatter in the Barcelona dressing room.

Neymar to PSG, from a fantasy to a possibility, but nothing more than that at this stage.
