The French giants, which is looking to replace Swede International and Manchester United target, Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is now a free agent after his contract ran out at the end of the season, wants the 24-year-old Brazilian by all means.
According to The Sun UK, “The whopping sum has activated the release clause in Neymar’s contract.”
And with very large boots to try to fill, the money-bags Parisien side are willing to spare no expense in ensuring they remain the most successful team in France.
The tabloid reports that earlier this summer, Neymar’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro confirmed that his client would be willing to discuss terms with PSG.
Ribeiro said: “If PSG show an interest in Neymar, we can discuss it.
“A contract can also be terminated provided that the release clause is paid.
“It’s huge. €193m (£153m). But I don’t think that would be an insurmountable problem for them.”
Ribeiro also added that the lure of living in the French capital would certainly be appealing to Neymar.
He added: “He feels good in Barcelona, he’s loved over there, and he’s playing for the best team in the world.
“It’s no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.
“But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG – that’s also a dream for every player.”
Neymar’s contract at the Nou Camp club only runs until June 2018 – meaning the Catalan giants may aim to cash in on the superstar while they can.
The Brazilian star netted 24 goals in 34 appearances for Barcelona in 2015-16.
Recently, Neymar’s contract was leaked onto the internet, with it revealing the star man earns a mere £77,000-a-week.
Meanwhile, team-mate Lionel Messi earns roughly £250,000-a-week AFTER tax.
Neymar stands to earn a lot more if he makes the move to Paris.
