Record-breaking Neymar jets into Paris for PSG presentation

Record-breaking Neymar jets into Paris for PSG presentation”

"Thanks for this new challenge - I'm really happy to come to Paris, to PSG, which is a great club in a wonderful city", Neymar told his press conference. "Since I arrived in Europe, the club has been one of the most competitive and ambitious". That is why France is the number one exporting country in football.

"There are specific questions that have been asked of Qatar, notably about the financing of terrorism".

"Neymar came here for motivation, a project that he believed in", he said.

According to Sky Sports, Neymar signed a five-year deal at PSG will earn around £515,000-a-week ($681,139 per week) after tax.

The transfer has been embroiled in controversy on most part with Spanish La Liga threatening to file complaint against PSG over the transfer and the possible abuse of the financial fair play (FFP) rules. "If you are thinking about it", he said, "go have a coffee and don't worry about it". "We have been very transparent".

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has bid a fond farewell to Neymar, calling him his "little brother".

The Brazil global told PSG's official website: "I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain". That will last forever. "I hope to do it at another time".

PSG have made no secret of their desire to win the Champions League, but Neymar said they would also have to work hard in Ligue 1, having lost their domestic crown to Monaco last season.

Along with selling tens of thousands of Neymar Jr. jerseys, the Brazilian's arrival will help club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi in his efforts to promote the slick image of a fashionable club that is determined to succeed on the world stage. Even then the process could not be completed, because when Neymar's legal team attempted to pay his way out of FC Barcelona, La Liga rejected the payment. I wish you good luck in this new stage of your life. However, Neymar denied such claims and said his reason to join Barcelona was to play alongside the Argentine.

Neymar adds, however, that he needs "new challenges" in his career.

For many years, Paris Saint-Germain was synonymous with huge under-achievement on the field, overt racism in the stands and fan violence outside the stadium.

"I am ready to get started from tomorrow", he said.

PSG are the odds-on favourites at 1/7 with the online bookmaker to land the Ligue 1 title and Champions League success for the French giants is on offer at 9/1.

Barcelona says that it is "very displeased" with Neymar and will not pay its former player the 26 million euros ($30.9 million) stipulated as a bonus in his last contract.

Neymar signed for Barcelona from the Brazilian club Santos in 2013 for a reported fee of 57 million euros.

However, Al-Khelaifi said: "We did not buy Neymar because Barcelona wanted Marco". Neymar's father and agent accompanied him in the meeting.
