SANT JOAN DESPI, Spain (AP) — Neymar has arrived at Barcelona’s training grounds amid widespread rumors that the Brazil striker could make a record-breaking move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar drove into Barcelona’s training center in Sant Joan Despi on the outskirts of the city on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. local time, a half-hour before a scheduled practice session.
He returned to Spain from publicity events in China late Tuesday.
PSG is reported to be ready to pay Neymar’s release clause of 222 million euros ($262 million). That would dwarf the 105 million euros (then $116 million) that Manchester United paid a year ago for France midfielder Paul Pogba.
A Barcelona club official has told The Associated Press that the club has “doubts concerning the future” of Neymar.
Wilson reported from Barcelona.
