French football league has asked La Liga to accept the 222 million euro ($260 million) cheque for Neymar’s move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.
Spain’s football league had earlier rejected the buyout, turning away representatives of the 25-year-old forward.
In reaction to the development, the French league said in a statement, “The LFP is surprised and does not understand the refusal of La Liga to simply accept the payment of the release clause of the player-Neymar.
“The LFP asks the Liga to abide by the Fifa rules and its responsibilities.
“The LFP supports Paris Saint-Germain and wishes Neymar to join the Ligue 1 championship.
“The legal services of the LFP are in support and at the disposal of Paris Saint-Germain so that the Neymar contract is approved as soon as possible.”
