    This was the moment Neymar came back to the mike and said his final words, "Paris St-Germain, ooh yeah."

    That is one way of embracing the fans.

    He loves it.

    Tbh, I don't think that £200m price tag is going to bother him.

  9. Get Involved


    Stew Brown‏: Who are Neymar and PSG kidding? It's all about the money. Where will it end?

    Dan Charles‏: Why doesn't Neymar give the money away if he's not motivated by money?

    Best line in the presser was from PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who said: "We will be very transparent with Financial Fair Play, I have a strong team with me. If you are thinking about it, go have a coffee and don't worry about it."

    Get him booked for Live at the Apollo.

    "One last word," he says. "Paris St-Germain. Ooh yeh."

    Hold on, hold on.

  14. Post update

    Talking over, time to put your boots on and do your talking on the pitch lad.

    No pressure.

  15. Post update

    Did you leave to move out of Messi's shadow?

    Neymar: "No, quite on the contrary.

    "One of my motivations to play for Barcelona was to play alongside Lionel Messi, he was my role model.

    "There was no pressure at all there, only during the first week at Barcelona where I was nervous to train with my role models.

    "But after that first week, I was relaxed and to play with the best is very easy because every player wants to play with the best in the world to win titles together.

    "I want to thank Messi because he welcomed me so well and I learned so much from him in our four years together.

    "But now I'm here at PSG and I want to help my team-mate in the best way and win titles."

  16. Post update

    How do you view French football and its level?

    Neymar: "I heard people criticise Ligue 1 and I have spoken to players about it. There are no easy games here. It is a big challenge for us to win the league again. We have great potential to be the greatest club in the world."

    Football cliche right there.

  17. Post update

    Will Paris become the city of Neymar? Will you be as iconic as the Eiffel Tower?

    Neymar: "I kind of anxious to write this history.

    "I have to first get to know my team-mates and get to know the city.

    "Paris doesn't need Neymar to be the most wonderful city in the world.

    "Of course I'm really happy about the welcome, it's my new home and I want to build a new dream and achieve a new challenge with my team-mates and my family.

    "I'm very happy to be another Brazilian to play for a great club in a great country."

  18. Post update

    What would success look like at PSG? What would you be satisfied with?

    Neymar: "I want to write history at PSG, this is the only reason. There are new challenges and I want to help write history. Our biggest challenge is the Champions League, but want all the trophies."

    Nasser Al-Khelaifi: "Before Neymar the value of the club was $1bn, now it is $1.5bn."

  19. Post update

    Is there a Messi-equivalent at PSG who you wanted to sign in order to play with?

    Neymar: "When I signed for Barcelona, one of the main reasons was to play alongside Lionel Messi.

    "Here in Paris, it's the club itself and the PSG project and all of the players.

    "It's not one specific player. It's players like Javier Pastore - who gave me his number 10 shirt.

    "I would like to thank him, I was surprised by that and hopefully I can repay him."

  20. Post update

    Is the ambition to win the Champions League this season?

    PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi: "You are trying to put pressure on us and Neymar, we love it.

    "Our ambition is to win the Champions League, that is always there. We want to win the maximum trophies we can. It is our dream and we will fight for it. The players need to enjoy it.

    "We paid the buyout clause, not Neymar."
