Neymar has been given permission to leave Barcelona as he looks set to join Paris St-Germain in a 222m euro (£198m) deal.

The Brazilian, 25, told his team-mates at training on Wednesday that he wanted to leave the Spanish club.

He was then given permission by manager Ernesto Valverde not to train and to “sort out his future”.
