Neymar event off amid transfer talk: China organisers

NEYMAR EVENT OFF AMID TRANSFER TALK: CHINA ORGANISERS
A promotional event in China featuring Neymar was cancelled because he and his advisers are "busy with transfer issues", organisers said, amid frenzied speculation about a record-breaking move.

The Brazilian star forward, who is reportedly mulling a massive 222-million-euro ($260 million) move to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona, was due to meet fans at a luxury Shanghai hotel on Monday.

China's biggest online travel company Ctrip said on its official microblog Weibo account that the meet-and-greet was off. "Neymar and (his) team are busy with transfer issues so he cannot guarantee he will be at the scheduled event on July 31 in Shanghai," Ctrip said.

The player, currently in the US with Barca on a pre-season tour, has remained tight-lipped about a possible transfer.
