Neymar's record transfer to PSG complete

Arsene Wenger believes Neymar doesn't 'justify the investment' and the £198 deal was for Qatari 'passion and pride'

A group of lawyers representing Neymar visited La Liga in Madrid on Thursday to try to settle the transfer and pay the 222 million-euro ($263 million) break fee.

"Since I arrived in Europe the club has always been one of the most competitive and ambitious", Neymar is quoted in a statement on the club's website.

"Any separation causes annoyance, especially when it is one not wished for by the club due to a unilateral decision on the part of the player", Vives told a press conference at the Camp Nou. And the biggest challenge, what most motivated me to join my new teammates, is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.

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

"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", read Al-Khelaifi's quotes further.

Non-league North Ferriby United claim to be that club - but said there will be one slight caveat in season ticket costs...

Former Barcelona star footballer Neymar signed a world record contract for 222m euros with Paris St-Germain, media reports said.

After missing out on the league title to AS Monaco last season, PSG have responded in a major way by securing the signature of one of the best players in the world right now.

Neymar has also been given permission to not participate in training after making a brief appearance at Barca's training ground on Wednesday.

"His profound culture of victory, his great strength of character and his sense of leadership make him a very great player".

The transfer fee paid by PSG is more than double the previous £90m record set by Paul Pogba's move from Juventus to Manchester United last summer. "That's all the information we are giving out at this moment".

Barca said they would pass on details of the operation to European soccer's governing body UEFA "so that they can determine the disciplinary responsibilities that may arise from this case".
