NEYMAR’S world-record £198million switch to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona could be finalised by Monday or Tuesday, reports say.
The Brazil frontman attended a Nike event in Miami but was not put up in front of the pre-Clasico press conferences.
And 101greatgoals.com suggest Neymar’s team expect the deal to be completed withing the next four days.
The 25-year-old must surely be keen for the saga to end as a bust-up with new Barca team-mate Nelson Semedo on Friday hinted at rising tensions.
Sky Sports showed a video of the bizarre flare-up, where the pair grapple and square up to each other.
Neymar ended the exchange with what was perhaps a symbolic gesture of his upcoming exit – tearing his bib off and hurling it down.
Yet earlier on Barca’s US tour Neymar showed why he is challenging team-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo for the status of world’s greatest player.
And in what most people think will be his final appearance for the Spanish giants he hit the only goal in a friendly victory over Manchester United.
