Brazil star Neymar will not head to Doha for a medical before completing a £196 million transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, but is instead likely to arrive in the French capital today, according to reports in France, writes dailymail.co.uk.

Le Parisien reported yesterday that ‘everything suggests’ Neymar will return to France from China, where he is visiting for promotional events, instead of heading to the middle east where PSG’s owners, Qatar Sports Investments, are based.

He could complete his world record transfer to the French side by the end of the week.

The 25-year-old is expected to pen a six-year deal with the French club worth more than £500,000-a-week.

Senior figures in the Barcelona side such as Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta have publicly and privately attempted to persuade Neymar his future is best-served in Spain.
