Neymar Completes Staggering �200 Million Move To PSG

wp 1501877394003Neymar has completed his world-record €222m (�198m)

transfer from Barcelona to Paris St Germain.

The Brazilian forward, 25, has met the media at a packed news conference in Paris after the deal was completed.

Asked by Sky Sports what he would say to people who believe the move is motivated by money and a reported €29.6m (�26.8m) annual salary, Neymar insisted it was more about ambition.

He said: �What I can say to these people is that they know nothing about personal life.

�I was never motivated by money. It was never my first motivation. What I think about is happiness, I want me and my family to be happy. I must follow my heart and not considering the money. If I was following money, I might be in different team in a different country.

�I’m sad people would think that way…It’s not because I wasn’t the star at Barcelona or the big star, I felt well in

Barcelona .

�I want something bigger, a bigger challenge and my heart chose this decision…It’s for the new challenge and trophies and this is what PSG want and they deserve it. This is why I came here. That’s what motivates me. I want to dream bigger,” he added.

The move was completed earlier when Barcelona confirmed they had accepted payment for Neymar ’s €222m (�200m) buyout clause.

The deal had been blocked on Thursday, when the Spanish league refused to accept the clause, but Neymar has now signed a five-year contract at the Parc des Princes, where the club begin their Ligue 1 campaign against Amiens on Saturday.

His departure from Barcelona , though offset by an emotional farewell on Instagram, has created much bad feeling at the Camp Nou.

Spokesman Josep Vives said the club board is �displeased with the decision and displeased by the manners” of

Neymar and is refusing to pay a €26m (�23.5m) bonus due as part of his last contract.
