Neymar Unveiled By PSG After Record Deal
Neymar, the world’s most expensive footballer, said money was never the motivating factor in his record 222 million-euro (200 million pounds) transfer from Barcelona to Paris St Germain.
The Brazilian forward told a news conference on his arrival in the French capital that he was motivated by desire for a new challenge and said he wanted to make his debut on Saturday.
Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who introduced the player as “an idol for the whole world”, backed up Neymar’s assertion that he could have gone elsewhere for more money.
The 25-year-old is committed to PSG until June 2022, the club said in a statement.
Media reports have said he could earn around 550,000 euros per week.
