Official: Neymar signs 5 years at PSG!

LEAGUE 1 – It’s done! The PSG has formalized Thursday the biggest transfer of history by recruiting Neymar to FC Barcelona for 222 million euros. The Brazilian signed a five-year contract with the Paris club. It is both a megastar and a non-standard player that Paris has just offered.

It is an earthquake. The strongest ever recorded on the planet Mercato. On Thursday, August 3, 2017, the PSG struck a monumental blow announcing the signature of Neymar, who has committed for five years with the club of the capital. Paris has literally exploded the record of the most expensive transfer in history by settling the 222 million euros corresponding to the release clause of the Brazilian megastar at FC Barcelona. That is more than double the amount invested by Manchester United to offer Paul Pogba last summer (105 million euros). Neymar will be presented to the press Friday at a conference organized at 1:30 pm at the Parc des Princes and then to the public Saturday from 3:45 pm, still in the Park.

Money that gives vertigo and legitimately creases a lot of teeth in relation to financial fair play. The assembly that allowed the PSG to carry out this transfer is not very clear at the moment. This included Qatar’s decisive role in signing a 300 million Euro contract to Neymar to become its ambassador for the 2022 World Cup. This would have enabled the player to pay Its clause. But this has not been confirmed so far.

A non-standard player

Regardless of the way, the PSG has offered itself a non-standard player. Arriving at Barcelona in 2013 for 88.2 million euros, the Brazilian signed 105 goals and 80 assists in the trio that he formed with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the Catalan attack. Neymar is also the spearhead of the Seleçao, for which he scored 52 goals in 77 selections. All this at only 25 years. While Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are still somewhat eclipsed, Neymar is already the star of the present and that of the future.

The PSG is well placed to know. The Brazilian has regularly hurt the club of the capital in the Champions League. In particular, he was the great craftsman of Barça’s feat against the club of the capital in the eighth final of the last edition (6-1). A humiliation that had left an indelible trace in the Parisian ranks and spoiled, for the most part, his end of the season. But this did not prevent the Parisian leaders to convince their executioners to join the capital.

And the Ligue 1. The PSG has not only shaken up the transfer market, which is expected to catch fire again after this transaction, and the European football game by offering itself as one of the best players in the world. The club of the capital has also focused the spotlight on a French championship more sexy than ever. Yes, Paris put Neymar in France. He has not yet won the Champions League, but he has achieved this feat. And it’s already monstrous.
