Widespread reports in Spain on Thursday morning confirm that PSG have arrived at the La Liga offices to deposit the 222 million euro release clause to sign Neymar from Barcelona.
It has been known throughout the Neymar transfer saga that PSG did not need to go directly to Barcelona in order to sign the Brazilian superstar.
Rules regarding release clauses in La Liga specify that they must be paid to the league itself, rather than the club.
Incredibly, in a move that has stunned world football, La Liga have refused to accept the PSG payment.
Juan de Dios Crespo, a sports lawyer from the firm Ruiz-Huerta & Crespo, was in charge of depositing the 222 million euro release clause fee.
