PSG know Santos star Neymar is joining Barcelona.Sport says PSG chief Leonardo made a serious play for Neymar in August, working with super agent Wagner Ribeiro in an attempt to open talks with Santos for the winger.

But Santos president Luiz Alvaro de Oliveira made it clear to Leonardo that Neymar would only leave the club for Barca - and no-one else.

Sources in Brazil say Barca already have a pre-contract agreement in place with Neymar and also a set fee struck with Santos.

Should they sell to another club, Barca would be due a €40 million penalty clause.
