Today is a day all Paris Saint-Germain supporters will remember for the rest of their lives. Neymar, arguably the third best player in the world, signed a 5-year contract with PSG after the club payed his €222 million release clause from FC Barcelona. It was a rumor that had more twists and turns than most supporters could stomach but eventually Paris’ ambition won the 25-year-old over.
Paris Saint-Germain’s ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings. I played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge.–Neymar, ESPNFC
