David Beckham sends classy message to Neymar after Brazilian’s move to PSG

The football world is still in shock this morning after Paris Saint-Germain obliterated the world transfer record on Barcelona forward Neymar.

The French outfit have forked out an astonishing £200 million for the 25-year-old, smashing the previous £89 million record deal set by Manchester United’s Paul Pogba less than a year earlier.

Neymar, who has signed a five-year deal and will earn an eye-watering £782,000 a week before tax at the Parc des Princes, said he has joined “one of the most ambitious clubs in Europe”.

The South American added: ”Paris St-Germain’s ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings.

“I feel ready to take the challenge. From today, I will do everything I can to help my new team-mates.”

Neymar’s £198m PSG transfer being blocked by LaLiga as release clause payment is refused.

Neymar’s world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain may have hit a snag with LaLiga blocking the move.

The Brazilian is ready to complete a switch from Barcelona to the French capital and has already undergone a medical and agreed personal terms.

PSG are prepared to pay Neymar’s £198m release clause in full to release him from his contract at the Nou Camp in football’s biggest ever deal.

Neymar’s lawyer, Juan de Dios Crespo, has been putting the final touches to the mega-money move and it was expected the deal would go through on Friday.

However, LaLiga are refusing to accept the eye-watering payment for the Football star.

LaLiga’s attempts to scupper the transfer, protecting Barcelona from losing one of the league’s most valuable assets, are understood to have no legal foundation.

Financial Fair Play falls under UEFA’s governance and there are no grounds for LFP to refuse to accept the deposit.

Instead, Yahoo Sport UK understands Neymar will ask FIFA to confirm the completion of the transfer so he is clear to make his debut for the Paris giants.

Man Utd beat Real Madrid on penalties in Santa Clara after Victor Lindelof error

Manchester United beat Real Madrid on penalties after their pre-season game finished 1-1 in Santa Clara.

Anthony Martial created Jesse Lingard’s first-half opener for United with a brilliant piece of skill on the left.

Casemiro levelled for Real from the penalty spot after United’s new £31m defender Victor Lindelof brought down Theo Hernandez with a rash challenge.

Seven out of 10 penalties were missed in the shootout, with Casemiro’s wild effort ensuring United edged it 2-1.

It was not a great night for Lindelof, who compounded his error during the game with a miss from the spot.

Another negative for United was Ander Herrera lasting only six minutes before going off with a hip injury.

They have now won all four of their matches in the United States and meet Barcelona in their final tour game in Washington on Wednesday.

Wales forward Gareth Bale started for Real in their first pre-season game.

They play Manchester City in Los Angeles on Wednesday before meeting Barcelona in Miami on Saturday.

The Blues could face a striker crisis after Diego Costa, 28, started to say his goodbyes to his Chelsea team-mates, having been told he is not part of Conte’s plans for next season.

The Premier League champions have turned their attention to Swansea striker Fernando Llorente, 32, after missing out on a loan move for the Spaniard in January.
