Brazilian international, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior has been unveiled by his new club Paris Saint-Germain following his record breaking £198m move from Bacelona.
At a press conference held in France this Friday, the 25 years old forward said that his move was due to the fact that he is looking for a new challenge.
“The club has a very similar ambition to mine and I want a bigger challenge. My heart made this decision that is why I am in front you today to help this team. Being a star did not impact my decision, it is down to me wanting to find a new challenge. I am looking for something new. This is what PSG want and I deserve it”. He said.
He also said that it was hard to make this decision but he had to move on since that is what football is about.
“I leave a lot of very good friends behind, but that’s football. You make new friends wherever you go and that’s the main thing”.
