Neymar Gives Press Conference After Decision on His Transfer to PSG

Lamar Ellis | 05 August, 2017, 01:04

His departure from Barcelona, though offset by an emotional farewell on Instagram, has created much bad feeling at the Camp Nou. "There are new challenges, and I want to help write the history of the club. PSG deserve trophies and I will have new trophies, this is what motivates me, I want to dream bigger".

"The statement also quoted Neymar as saying: "'I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain'".

PSG may have taken the world record, but English clubs lead the way overall thanks to the eye-watering money generated by the Premier League's television rights deals.

The previous transfer record had been set a year ago when Manchester United paid $116 million to bring Paul Pogba back from Juventus.

"But after that first week, I was relaxed and to play with the best is very easy because every player wants to play with the best in the world to win titles together. I am 69 kilograms (152 pounds)", Neymar said through a translator. 'Here it is the club, the PSG project, all the members of the team.

"Neymar is an idol for the whole world", al-Khelaifi said. "I think 99 percent of the clubs do that but, of course, we can not compete at that level", he said.

Despite the huge transfer fee, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is convinced he has sealed a good deal.

However, Al-Khelaifi said: "We did not buy Neymar because Barcelona wanted Marco".

The French club are thought to be offering the 25-year-old a five-year contract with a basic salary of £26.8m a year - around £515,000 a week.

PSG have already been fined and saw their Champions League squad limited by UEFA for breaches of FFP in 2014. "If you are thinking about it, go have a coffee and don't worry about it", he said.

Neymar has the consolation of being well-compensated by his new team, to the tune of more than half a million dollars a week.

And Neymar, used to playing in the comforting shadow of Messi at Barcelona, now will be his team's unquestioned superstar.

By paying the release clause in his contract, PSG shattered the world transfer record to sign arguably one of the top three best attacking players in the game, alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paris Saint-Germain introduced Neymar, its very expensive new soccer acquisition, on Friday in Paris. We are expecting that.

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

Philippe Chembon, a fan, flaunted a receipt showing he spent 623.50 euros ($740) on four Neymar jerseys.

"This is a very big moment for PSG", Philippe Chembon, the fan in question, told Harris. Neymar's transfer however, will be the biggest move Qatar has made so far, a sign that their attempt to influence proceedings in world football won't come to a halt any time soon. They weren't deterred from hanging around through the night, despite discovering Neymar wouldn't arrive until the morning.
