Neymar's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has confirmed that his client will join Paris Saint-Germain by "the end of the week", according to journalist Gerard Romero.

The Brazilian forward's representative claimed that PSG will pay his €222m release clause and he will be unveiled at a presentation by the end of this week.

He said: "PSG will pay the release clause and Neymar will be presented in Paris by the end of this week."

Neymar briefly arrived at training for Barcelona on Tuesday to say his goodbyes to his current teammates.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have confirmed in a club statement that the 25-year-old has expressed his desire to leave for PSG.

"The player Neymar Jr, accompanied by his father and agent, has informed FC Barcelona this morning of his decision to leave the club in a meeting held at the club’s offices," the statement read.

"Faced with this position, the club has informed them they refer to the buy-out clause of his existing contract which as of 1 July totals 222 million euros which will have to be deposited in its entirety.

"Furthermore, in reply to the claim for the contract extension bonus, the club has once again made it clear that the amount remains deposited with a notary until the case is resolved.

"The player remains under contract at FC Barcelona but with temporary permission to not take part in training sessions."

Neymar and Ribeiro will now travel to Paris in the coming days to finalise the world record transfer to the French capital.
