Paris St-Germain are set to spend an eye-watering £198m for Barcelona’s Brazilian star Neymar…but have they been beaten to his signature?
The French side must pay that figure in order to meet the 25-year-old’s release clause. However, the deal has stalled due to La Liga rejecting an attempt from lawyers to pay his buyout clause, so step forward North Ferriby United!
Ferriby suffered relegation from the National League last season and with average crowds just over 600, this could be the signing to get them going again.
The National League North club announced on Twitter this afternoon that they had signed the flashy forward, but season ticket prices had risen as a result!
Ferriby hilariously tweeted:
We are delighted to announce that we’ve pipped @PSG_inside to the post!
