Barcelona haven’t wasted time erasing Neymar’s presence on the walls of the Nou Camp.

Within hours of news surrounding his £198million move to Paris Saint-Germain being reported, staff at Barcelona’s ground started removing a team poster that had him in the image.

One employee was spotted tearing a large poster off the side of the Nou Camp as the club started to prepare for life without the Brazilian.

Neymar will sign a five-year deal worth £596,000-a-week after tax with a £45m signing-on fee, as revealed by Sportsmail two weeks ago.

The total value of the transfer to PSG is expected to reach a staggering £398m.

Neymar made a 40-minute appearance at Barcelona’s training ground on Wednesday where he met club directors before saying farewell to his team-mates.

Barcelona also issued a statement confirming the Brazilian had requested to leave the club in order to see through his move to France.

According to Neymar’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, the fee will be paid by PSG in the next 48 hours.

He could be unveiled as the French club’s new signing as early as Friday – a day before their first game of the new Ligue 1 season against Amiens SC.
