PSG signs Neymar for 5-years
Paris Saint-Germain have officially completed the signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar from Barcelona and in the process more than doubled the previous world transfer record after triggering the 25-year-old’s enormous €222m release clause.
This is the first time in history that a French club has broken the record, with Spanish, Italian and English clubs responsible for all but three world record deals since the very first £100 transfer was completed 124 years ago in 1893. Neymar signed a lucrative 5-year contract with PSG after leaving Barcelona’s pre-season programme earlier this week.
On finishing of the exchange, Neymar said ‘I am to a great degree glad to join Paris Saint-Germain. Since I touched base in Europe, the club has dependably been a standout amongst the most aggressive and generally aspiring.
