Barcelona forward Neymar has paid his buyout clause of 222m euros (£200m), the Spanish club say.
Neymar, 25, is set to sign for Paris St-Germain for a world record fee, after telling Barca he wanted to leave on Wednesday.
The Brazil international’s lawyers paid the sum in person at the Nou Camp.
Earlier on Thursday, La Liga rejected an attempt to pay the fee, over concerns PSG are violating Uefa’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
In a statement, Barca said they “will pass on to Uefa the details of the above operation so that they can determine the disciplinary responsibilities that may arise from this case”.
