Wenger Condemns Neymar World Record Transfer

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly condemned Neymar's £198 million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.
The French boss, whose Arsenal team face Chelsea in Community Shield season opening game on Sunday at Wembley, said the deal showed what could happen when countries own clubs, as he claimed: “It is beyond calculation and beyond rationality.
"For me, it is the consequence of the ownerships and that has completely changed the whole landscape of football in the last 15 years," Wenger said

"Once a country owns a club, everything is possible. It becomes very difficult to respect the financial fair play because you can have different ways or different interests for a country to have such a big player to represent a country. It can't justify the investments and looks unusual for the game.

"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. The number today involves a lot of passion, pride, public interest and you cannot rationalise that any more."
Neymar, 25, is reportedly keen to play in PSG’s opening Ligue 1 game against Amiens tomorrow. And the Brazilian superstar will earn an eye-watering £537,000 a week at PSG.
