Speaking about his move to the new club, Neymar told media: "Paris St-Germain's ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings".

He revealed his father, Neymar Santos Sr, had wanted him to stay in Catalonia, but the lure of a new challenge was too strong.

"Paris is magic!" he said in French before calling out the club's motto: "Ici, c'est Paris!"

His worldwide transfer certificate did not meet a midnight deadline, so he will watch the match against Amiens from the stands, the league said.

Neymar is now free to complete his world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain after Barcelona confirmed on Thursday his 222 million euro ($260 million) buyout clause had been received by the Catalan club.

They also expected to sell another 15,000 shirts on Saturday while a 45,000 sell-out crowd would watch the opening game of the season.

No, he didn't stop playing with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andreas Iniesta at Barcelona because he wants to earn £520,000 a week and live in Paris. "It was one of the most hard decisions I have ever taken". I was at a great club at Barcelona, I love Barcelona, I have friends at the club, some fantastic players. For €200 million, I don't think (Neymar) is expensive. He will not be able to play football throughout his life so he needs to make hay while the sun shines.

That means the transfer is a new world record deal, more than double the previous record of 105 million euros paid by Manchester United to Juventus for Paul Pogba a year ago.

"Leo Messi became my partner, and friend on and off the pitch and I was proud to play with him".

"There are not two Neymars in the world". He did not come here for money I can assure you.

Since the Ballon D'or started in 1959, only one player who played football in Ligue 1 or the French league has won the Ballon D'or, and that was Jean Pierre Papin in 1991 who played for Marseilles at the time, he also represented France 54 times.

But he refused to give hostages to fortune when asked if this year would see PSG win the Champions League for the first time. "With UEFA, with Financial Fair Play, we are under the regulation of UEFA, and Financial Fair Play so there's no problem", the president said. "We are going to present it immediately", Tebas said to Mundo Deportivo.
