Barcelona Has Asked UEFA To Look Into Neymar's Issue

Barcelona Has Asked UEFA To Look Into Neymar's Issue

Following the warm welcome, it was time for Neymar to meet the media, and he expressed just how happy he was to be at his new home.

PSG announced the Brazilian striker had signed a five-year contract with the French club for a fee of €222 million ($263 million).

Brazilian legend Ronaldinho says that he did not advise Neymar to join Paris Saint Germain, but instead told the player to follow his heart.

PSG have also confirmed that the forward will take the number ten shirt hitherto worn by Javier Pastore, leaving Angel Di Maria free to continue wearing his favoured number eleven. However, Neymar denied such claims and said his reason to join Barcelona was to play alongside the Argentine.

Only a couple of hours after landing at Le Bourget airport, Neymar took the stage before journalists alongside club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to say that his decision to leave Barcelona had been "one of the most hard decisions I ever took".

'The club has a very similar ambition to mine, I want a bigger challenge.

Neymar's imminent mega-transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain is "beyond calculation and rationality", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Thursday.

"It's not because I wasn't the star at Barcelona or the big star, I felt well in Barcelona".

The Ligue 1 side has captured the Brazil global from Barcelona for a world-record reported transfer fee of £200 million.

"We will work with Uefa and meet Financial Fair Play", Al-Khelaifi added.

At the same time though, he stressed that he was keen to get down to work on his new challenge in the French capital.

The 25-year-old will be officially presented to Paris Saint-Germain's fans at Estadio Parc des Princes on Saturday.

However, the report said Neymar's representatives paid the buyout money to the Barcelona football club instead.

"Today he's the most expensive player ever, but in two or three years will he be?"

And PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said Neymar shared the club's hunger for titles and trophies rather than financial rewards. His winning mentality, strength of character and sense of leadership have made him into a great player.
