Neymar had decieded he wanted to move to France before pre-season started. His father had everything agreed with Qatar Sports Investments. The contracts were already created and will be signed in the coming days.

Neymar wants to recreate his relationship with Coutinho for Brazil at PSG. Neymar has been putting pressure on the midfielder to join him. The pair, from the 92 generation, have known each other since 14 years old in the youth categories of Brazil. And last season they were paired again on the pitch when Tite picked the Liverpool man. 

The attempt to sign Coutinho from Liverpool is another battle between Barcelona and PSG. The Blaugrana are in a better position to get him at the moment, with the club working on the deal for months, as SPORT has been reporting.
