Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed he is “very confident” of completing the sensational capture of Neymar from Barcelona.
Yahoo Sport France reported Al-Khelaifi as telling other PSG executives: “Negotiations for Neymar are going well. I’m very confident.”
The Brazilian has a £197 million buyout clause in his contract with the Catalan giants.
If Neymar’s contract is bought out, something that does not need Barca’s approval, PSG would only need to agree terms with the player to secure his signature.
However, La Liga president Javier Tebas has strong doubts over the Ligue 1 club’s ability to bring him in and remain in line with UEFA’s financial fair play rules.
