By David Kappel - Aug 02, 2017 01:06 PM @kappilinho

FC Barcelona have officially confirmed that superstar Neymar has handed in a transfer request and wants to leave the club.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Barca's biggest sales in history.

Earlier on Wednesday, the club confirmed that Neymar had been given permission to skip training, and the Catalan giants have now announced that Neymar has officially asked to leave the club.

The Blaugrana also insisted that any interested side will need to pay his €222 million (R3.49 billion) release clause.

"The player Neymar Jr, accompanied by his father and agent, has informed FC Barcelona this morning of his decision to leave the club in a meeting held at the club's offices. The club refer to the buyout clause of his existing contract, which, as of 1 July, totals 222 million euros," a statement on Barca's official website read.

"Faced with this position, the Club has informed them they refer to the buy-out clause of his existing contract which as of 1 July totals 222 million euros which will have to be deposited in its entirety.

"The player remains under contract at FC Barcelona but with temporary permission to not take part in training sessions."

Tnx God,we as barca fans, we are very excited,bt soon mark my words,he is going to regret his decision,he don't realise that players who are persuading him to leave barca don't want him to achieve what they achieved at barca,they are jealous,players such as dani alves,he knew if neymar will still be @barca,he was going to achieve more than him,nw at psg,he will win only the league there,nomore uefa champions league my boy,go well to that lower league

He is having that rights to play a team of his choice, he joined Barcelona on his will, so he is also free to leave. THAT IS A BUSINESS, A BIG BUCKS FOR THE TEAM.
