Barcelona says Neymar's 222 million euro ($262 million) release clause must be paid in full if the Brazil striker wants to leave.

Barcelona says Neymar and his father met with club officials Wednesday to say he wanted to leave, with a move to Paris Saint-Germain seemingly imminent.

The club says that it "referred them to the release clause in his current contract, which as of July 1 is 222 million euros, which must be paid in full."

If PSG pays the clause, it would shatter the previous world record transfer of 105 million euros (then $116 million) that Manchester United paid for France midfielder Paul Pogba last year.
