Neymar is angry!

This was followed just a few hours later by a report from the usually reliable Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio: PSG are ready to pay Neymar’s release clause at Barcelona.

Neymar is happy at Barcelona and has no intention to agitate for a move. The former Santos star is contracted until 2021, with a release clause worth 222 million euros.
The representatives of Neymar and the player himself are outraged about the rumours that began on Monday in Sport.
Neymar is happy in Barcelona and enjoys living in the city. He has no intention of leaving the La Liga giants and has not come to any agreement with PSG.

The Neymar rumours were intended to destabilise Barcelona and the player, which was a “vendetta” tactic from the Ligue 1 side.
Meanwhile, as you might expect, Barcelona have also told Cope they have no intention of selling Neymar…
