PSG sign Barcelona’s Neymar

The biggest deal of the summer and the history of world football has been completed.

FC Barcelona’s Neymar Jr has joined Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain for a world record fee of  €222m which was his buy-out clause.

The deal is a game changer in the transfer game doubling the previous world record which was brought by Manchester United’s €105m purchase of Paul Pogba.

Neymar commented: “I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain,” said Neymar. “Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious.

“And the biggest challenge, what most motivated me to join my new team-mates is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.

“Paris Saint-Germain’s ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings. I played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge.”

It is understood that Neymar’s salary will be a whooping £515,000 a week.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said:

“It is with immense joy and pride that we welcome Neymar Jr to Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar Jr is today one of the very best players in world football.

“His winning mentality, strength of character and sense of leadership have made him into a great player. He will bring a very positive energy to this club.

“In six years, we have built a very ambitious project that has already taken us to the highest level of national and European football.

“Today, with the arrival of Neymar, I am convinced that we will come even closer, with the support of our faithful fans, to realising our greatest dreams.”
