The Spanish football league has refused to accept a $263m buyout payment from the lawyers of Brazil star Neymar, according to an official source, delaying the record transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

The rejection of the buyout clause has once again created an ambiguity and suspense over the Barcelona footballer's shift to the new team.

Neymar ended weeks of silence by telling Barcelona's executives, players and coach on Wednesday that his intention was to leave the club after four seasons.

A presentation is planned for Friday, and the source said it is possible he could debut in PSG's Ligue 1 opener at home against Amiens on Saturday.

The LFP expresses surprise and doesn't understand La Liga's refusal to simply accept the buy-out clause of the player Neymar.

Spain's football league chief Javier Tebas had on, 30 July, threatened to file a complaint with UEFA for financial fair play breaches against PSG over their pursuit of Neymar.

The payment was made in Neymar's name by the 25-year-old's representatives to terminate his contract and clear the way for him to sign with the Parisian club.

Sources told ESPN FC that Neymar is now expected to arrive in the French capital on Thursday night to put pen to paper on a five-year deal with PSG worth €30m annually after tax.

"Neymar is one of the best players in the world, commercially he is very strong and for sure Paris St Germain thought about it".

However, UEFA insisted the move doesn't automatically break FFP rules as PSG have time to balance their books.

Andres Iniesta previously told the club he believed keeping the former Santos striker was more useful than the €222m his sale would bring in. PSG's accounts show that they have a larger commercial income than Real Madrid and Manchester United, which is to say that the value of their brand is greater than those clubs.

Neymar has played an integral part of Brazil's road to Russian Federation 2018, scoring six goals in seven qualifiers.
