La Liga have rejected the world record £198m fee for Barcelona forward, Neymar Jr, from his lawyers, as the Spanish football governing body cites violation of Uefa’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
Neymar’s world record move to PSG became imminent yesterday when Barcelona authorized him to miss training and also confirmed that the forward wants to leave the Camp Nou.
La Liga officials told the BBC: “We can confirm that the lawyers of the player have come to La Liga to deposit the clause and that it has been rejected.”

According to Spanish laws, a player buys himself out of his contract, which is done by depositing the buyout clause fee to the La Liga.
The Spanish football power house believes that PSG, a club bankrolled by Qatari sheikh, has violated FFP rules, which states that “European clubs cannot outspend what they earn by more than 30m euros.”
