Meunier and PSG tease fans as Neymar move closes in

Thomas Meunier and Paris Saint-Germain have playfully teased fans on social media ahead of the expected world-record arrival of Brazil superstar Neymar from Barcelona.

After Barca confirmed Neymar had informed the club of his desire to leave and missed training on Wednesday to sort out his future, PSG right-back Meunier took to Twitter.

PSG responded to Meunier with a simple, but telling, winking emoji.

Barca issued a statement confirming the Brazilian's release clause of €222m must be paid in full if he is to be allowed to leave, seemingly ruling out the possibility of a player being included in the transfer.
