FILE - In this March 28, 2017 file photo, Brazil's Neymar celebrates scoring his side's 2nd goal against Paraguay during a 2018 World Cup qualifying soccer match at the Arena Corinthians Stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Neymar has told Barcelona that he plans to leave the club, with a blockbuster move to Paris Saint-Germain seemingly imminent. Barcelona responded shortly after his announcement Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017 with a statement saying the Brazil striker's 222 million euro ($262 million) release clause must be paid in full, a scenario which until recently seemed beyond the reach of any rival.
