It's Official! Barca's Neymar Completes World-Record Move To PSG

Neymar has finally completed his world-record £198m transfer to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in a deal the French side say 'emphasises more than ever the club's aims to rise to the top of world football.'
After weeks of intense speculation regarding the move, the 25-year-old has signed a five-year contract worth £500,000 a week and is in line to make his debut on Saturday at home to Amiens in Ligue 1.

He will wear the No 10 shirt, as revealed by Dugout

Neymar, who will be officially unveiled at 1.30pm French time on Friday at a press conference, said:
"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 team-mates is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.

"Paris Saint-Germain's ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings. 

"I 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 team-mates, to open up new horizons for my club and to bring happiness to its millions of supporters around the world."
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "It is with immense joy and pride that we welcome Neymar Jr to Paris Saint-Germain. Neymar Jr is today one of the very best players in world football.

"His winning mentality, the strength of character and sense of leadership have made him into a great player. He will bring a very positive energy to this club. In six years, we have built a very ambitious project that has already taken us to the highest level of national and European football. Today, with the arrival of Neymar Jr, I am convinced that we will come even closer, with the support of our faithful fans, to realizing our greatest dreams."
Neymar leaves Barcelona having scored 105 goals in 186 appearances during his four years at the club, helping them to eight trophies including two league titles and the 2015 Champions League

 The move also breaks up the deadly MSN strike partnership of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar, which plundered a staggering 364 goals during their three seasons together.
