Brazilian superstar Neymar has pledged to spark a trophy glut at Paris Saint Germain after agreeing a five-year deal on a world record 222 million euro ($264 million) transfer from Barcelona.
The 25-year-old will earn a mind-boggling 30 million euros ($35.5 million) a year in Paris but insists he will prove value for money for the ambitious but under-performing Qatari-owned French side.
“I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain,” said Neymar.
“Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious. And the biggest challenge, what most motivated me to join my new teammates is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.
“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.
“From today, I will do everything I can to help my new teammates, to open up new horizons for my club and to bring happiness to its millions of supporters around the world.”
PSG said that Neymar will be unveiled at a press conference at the club’s Parc des Princes at 1130GMT on Friday.
