Twitter can’t believe Neymar is actually off to PSG this summer

He’s going

Eventually there was going to be a £100 million player, and it seems that Barcelona star Neymar is set to become that and then some.

When news initially broke of a move to Paris Saint Germain, most people took it with a pinch of salt, but given Neymar has now told friends he’s off, and several credible sites have reported on that, it seems said deal is set to take place.

This is a world where Kyle Walker costs tens of millions of pounds, so the likes of Neymar was never going to come cheap, but 222 million euros is an eye-watering amount.

Neymar apparently wants to leave in order to get out of the shadow Lionel Messi has cast, and while he likes the player personally and professionally, he wants to win the Ballon d’Or, and knows that won’t happen while the duo play their club football together.

That, plus unrest between his father and Barcelona mean a move is a-go, with Chelsea and Manchester United priced out by PSG’s massive offer to pay his release clause.

Twitter couldn’t deal with it, and people had a range of reactions.
