NEYMAR Offered £650,000-a-week To LEAVE Barcelona and Join PSG...

Brazilian sensation Neymar was offered £650,000-a-week to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer, his agent claims.

Wagner Ribeiro has revealed that the 24-year-old was offered a world record wage packet from the French Champions in a bid to lure him away from Barcelona early in the transfer window.

Neymar, who has also previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, signed a new five-year deal at the Nuo Camp at the start of July, quashing all talk of a Barcelona exit.

It is alleged that PSG, owned by Qatari billionaires, were wiling to pay €190m (£160m) to secure Neymar's signature.

Ribeiro says that Neymar was offered an annual salary of €40m (£33.8m) after tax, is a huge weekly sum of £650,000.

Ribeiro told ESPN Brasil: "Neymar was very close to a move to PSG. He would have earned €40m a year, free.
"He was also close to amove to Manchester United. But he renewed his contract for less money with Barcelona, because he wanted to stay in Barcelona."

Neymar's new deal at Barcelona expires in 2021 but he had a €200million release clause inserted into the deal.
That will rise to €222million in the second year of the deal and €250million for the final three years.
