Neymar denies money was motivation for record deal

Transfer News Neymar

Qatar Sports Investments became the majority shareholder of PSG in 2011.

Asked if France should be anxious about Qatar trying to make diplomatic gains out of the deal, he said: "We don't need to be suspicious of one country or another. France is favorable to dialogue".

When asked if he is bothered by Barcelona club denouncing the deal PSG made with Neymar, he said: "not at all, everything we've done, was transparent".

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

"Honestly, it's very positive for us and for him".

He also defended Neymar against suggestions he had moved for financial reasons.

Pique, who is five years older than Neymar, accompanied a photo of him embracing the Brazilian in the changing room posted on Instagram with his goodbye message.

"I wish you lots of luck in this new stage in your life".

His statement read, "I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain". That will last forever.

"He did not come here for the money". I hope it's a minority of fans. Thank you again for coming here.

In his four seasons there, Neymar scored 105 goals as Barcelona won the Champions League, Club World Cup, two Spanish league titles and Copa del Rey three times.

"I always want to play, so I am ready to do so tomorrow".

"Apart from that, we are not in a period any more where you think, in some places 'If I invest that, I will get that back.' We are beyond that". This is what PSG want, and they deserve it. But the signing of Neymar brings it to a new level of expectation.

It was the most hard decision of my life to leave Barcelona, but I felt like it was the right moment to leave. "I'm really sad that people still think that way and I'm glad that PSG believe in me", he said on Friday after being presented as a PSG player at Parc des Princes.

"PSG and Neymar have the option to go to Federation Internationale de Football Association with the request that Federation Internationale de Football Association give them a provisional transfer", Javier Ferrero, a specialist in sports law for the Senn Ferrero firm, told AFP.

But the French club's Qatari owners are nothing if not ambitious and were determined to make Neymar their marquee name as part of their drive to finally capture the competition.

"Neymar Jr is today one of the very best players in world football".

Yesterday, Paris Saint-Germain officially completed the signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar from Barcelona and in the process more than doubled the previous world transfer record after triggering the 25-year-old's enormous €222m release clause.

The second time was far more acrimonious when Luis Figo left Barcelona to join Real Madrid and kickstart the Galactico era which involved some of the ugliest El Clasicos which involved a pig's head as well.

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

Major sponsors have flocked to his door for his good looks, happy-go-lucky nature and huge social media following with Nike, Gillette, Panasonic and Volkswagen among Neymar's big-name brands.

The shirts cost 155 euros ($184).

Neymar's move would mean he would earn almost 30 million euros net per year at PSG, but he said he followed his heart while making the decision to play for PSG.
