[SPORTS]: Neymar Jr. has accepted PSG's world-record transfer fee of roughly $257 million to leave FC Barcelona.

A report in Brazil on Tuesday added to uncertainty over Neymar's future at Barcelona, after Esporte Interativo claimed he has accepted an offer from Paris Saint-Germain and will move for a world-record transfer fee of €222 million.
This comes after reports in Spain said on Monday that PSG were ready to pay the huge buyout clause to land Neymar, following a report in Sport that he feels his development at Barcelona is being stifled by Lionel Messi.
Sport wrote that Neymar, who is under contract at Barca until 2021, feels unsettled having won every major club honour with the Blaugrana and would now like to move on in order to become the main star and challenge for the Ballon d'Or, something he feels is not possible playing alongside Messi.

However, before the Brazilian report on Tuesday, Barcelona vice president Jordi Mestre said he was "200 percent" convinced that Neymar would not move on, echoing what a Barcelona spokesman said a day earlier.
Mestre said: "I've read information in the French press that PSG themselves have categorically denied it, a club with whom we are maintaining absolutely normal relations. Nothing has changed in that aspect."
French newspaper L'Equipe cited a PSG source as saying that the French club were not interested in dealing with Neymar again after talks a year ago ended on a sour note.
The Spain reports said Neymar would be in line to earn €30m a year in Paris after linking up with international teammates Dani Alves, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura. Manchester United and Manchester City also are credited with interest, although it is claimed the size of the transfer fee could present a problem, even for them.
