Neymar: Why I Joined PSG

Neymar: Why I Joined Paris Saint-Germain

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 04, 2017 08:59 AM @KeeganKruger

Brazil superstar Neymar has broken his silence and revealed why he decided to leave FC Barcelona for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG Complete World Record Deal For Neymar

The 25-year-old completed his move to the French side on Thursday evening, after his €222 million (R3.4 billion) release clause was accepted by his former club.

Neymar, who has signed a five-year deal with PSG, said he joined the club for its ambitious project and because he wants to help them win European titles.

"I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain," Neymar said, as quoted by The Guardian.

"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 teammates, is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.

"PSG's ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings. I have played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge.

"From today, I will do everything I can to help my new teammates, to open up new horizons for my club and to bring happiness to its millions of supporters around the world."

Official: Barca Confirm Neymar's Release Clause Has Been Paid

The Brazil international will be unveiled by the club on Friday, while there have even been reports that he might have his own parade in Paris.

Neymar will do well in France,i'm just worried about the level of the competition domestically as Ligue 1 is not at the same level as La Liga.It's in the UCL were things are going to be interesting.

You didn't have to explain ntwana..I hear people say football is business these days and you did just right.. You've done well in Brazil, Spain,, now do it in France for two years..move to England for three years,,Italy and Germany,, wrap it up in China... Don't be afraid of the unknown if you left barca like someone I know..who's scared to be exposed once he joins another team with less quality...all hail king neymar Jr..my second Best after cr7

@fanist he will. If Mario shined in Frans then Neymer will break records. Age is on his side. After that he will come n spend two seasons in Madrid
