The 5 Month Old SnapChat Post About PSG That Might Come Back To Haunt Neymar

Neymar’s world record transfer to PSG is currently being held up by La Liga but will the Brazilians social media activity cause him problems should the deal go through?

We all remember the last 16 of the Champions League last season when Barcelona were embarrassed in a 4-0 defeat to PSG only for the Catalans to turn it around in the second leg in sensational fashion.

After the initial 4-0 defeat PSG player Adrien Rabiot, took to Instagram to make fun of Barcelona’s performance and Neymar’s response after Barca’s comeback might come back to haunt him.

After the second leg miracle that Barcelona pulled off, with Neymar producing two late goals, the Brazilian jumped on Social Media to respond to Rabiot’s photo and have the last laugh.

The world-record transfer of Neymar from Barcelona to Paris St Germain has hit a snag after LaLiga refused to accept the release clause for the striker.

Barcelona said they would only allow the 25-year-old to make the staggering switch if his buy-out clause of €222m was met and paid in full.

But in an unexpected twist, lawyers for the player were turned away on Thursday morning when they arrived at the offices of LaLiga to pay the money required.

“We can confirm that the player’s lawyers came to the LaLiga offices this morning to deposit the clause and that it has been rejected. That’s all the information we are giving out at this moment,” a statement from LaLiga read.

It now remains to be seen what the next step in this most astronomical of transfers will be, with a league body intervening almost unheard of.

Despite needing to post the record amount in full, PSG are reportedly unfazed by such a demand after Neymar indicated his willingness to depart the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

Reports in France had suggested a five-year contract to bring Neymar to Ligue 1 could be finalised this week, and French newspaper Le Parisien claimed the 25-year-old is set to earn 30 million euros (£27million) net per year, or close to 600,000 euros (£540,000) each week after tax.
