Arsene Wenger: Neymar PSG transfer is beyond rationality

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger described Neymars prospective record-breaking transfer to Paris Saint-Germain as beyond rationality. The Brazilian forward is on the verge of a move to the Parisian side from Barcelona for a fee of 222 million euro. Wenger said it is difficult to respect Financial Fair Play regulations when a state owns a football club and views a player like Neymar as good investment for their country. The Arsenal manager also said his side cannot compete at the same financial level as PSG and that a player is worth whatever a buying club can afford to spend. Neymars move appeared to hit a roadblock on Thursday as La Liga rejected the payment of his Barcelona release clause, though it was not immediately clear whether it would put the brakes on the transfer.
