Paris Saint-Germain are ready to launch a deal worth in excess of £200m to sign Neymar from Barcelona, according to a report.

The French giants are said to be desperate to bring the global superstar on board next summer and are prepared to break the current transfer record. reports that PSG had one bid knocked back during the most recent window but will now make an improved offer, increasing the amount offered to both Barcelona and Neymar in the hope of pushing through a world-record move.

It is claimed that the Brazil international’s contract will be on a par with Lionel Messi’s, worth around £22.5m a year until 2021, with a range of different clauses included to further boost his pay packet.

PSG already have fellow Brazilians Marquinhos, Lucas Moura and Thiago Silva on their books, which could work in their favour when returning with a vastly improved offer.
