MADRID, August 3: Spain's La Liga on Thursday rejected payment of a record-breaking release clause that would allow Neymar to leave Barcelona for Paris St Germain, a source from the national football league said.
A group of lawyers representing Brazilian Neymar visited La Liga in Madrid on Thursday to try to settle the transfer and pay the 222 million-euro (199.86 million pounds) break fee.
It was not immediately clear whether La Liga's refusal to accept payment would put the brakes on the transfer.
