Barcelona Official Says No Club Would Pay €222million For Neymar


Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernandez considers it implausible that any club would pay Neymar’s €222million release clause.The Brazil star signed a new five-year contract last June that includes a buy-out clause, which has risen from €200m to €222m and will reach €250m in 12 months’ time.

Neymar was linked with a move away from Camp Nou before his new deal effectively ended speculation over a possible transfer to either Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain.

However, a report in Sport yesterday claimed the 25-year-old is unsettled in Catalonia and would consider leaving in the transfer window.Robert, though, does not expect any side to be audacious enough to attempt an offer.
