Neymar's decision to leave FC Barcelona was reportedly motivated by his ambition to win the individual accolade, which he felt he couldn't do playing along side Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian forward admits the Ballon d'Or award is an aim for him, but he feels winning the Champions League with PSG is more important.

"The Ballon d'Or is a dream. This is obviously an objective for me," Neymar told PSG's official club magazine.

"But it's not a trophy that [has to be at the front of my mind]. We must first think in terms of the team and the whole team wants to achieve its Champions League ambition.

"Thank God, I've already won one. I know this sensation and I want to know again this thrill with PSG.

"Only when the collective trophies are won will it be time, then, to think of the individual rewards."
