Record-breaking Neymar jets into Paris for PSG presentation

   FLASH Neymar regularly posts his lavish lifestyle on Instagram

PSG may have taken the world record, but English clubs lead the way overall thanks to the eye-watering money generated by the Premier League's television rights deals.

Neymar said he wanted fresh challenges and thus chose to jump ship.

Instead, it was all about making PSG an elite European soccer team.

Neymar leaves Barcelona after three years at the Camp Nou, having scored 105 goals and assisted another 80 strikes in 186 appearances for the club.

P.S.G.'s chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, dismissed concerns Friday.

The transfer has been embroiled in controversy on most part with Spanish La Liga threatening to file complaint against PSG over the transfer and the possible abuse of the financial fair play (FFP) rules.

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 fact I am the most expensive player is not a burden".

The 25-year-old's €222million switch was completed on Thursday and on Friday he was presented to the world's media at the Parc des Princes.

PSG have a sizeable contingent of Neymar's compatriots and, though he said he did speak to them, he claims their presence held no sway over his final call to make the move.

The new USA sanctions could also impact European Union efforts to further diversify the energy sector, particularly in the Baltic.

"It was a tense time, thinking about what I should do in my life". "I don't think he is expensive because I think (the transfer) will pay more than we paid".

Neymar also heaped praise on Lionel Messi, who he regards as the best footballer he will see in his lifetime.

"Barcelona and Catalonia will always be in my heart but I need new challenges". "If you are thinking about it", he said, "go have a coffee and don't worry about it". No, I felt well in Barcelona.

He said: 'For me Neymar is the best player in the world, so we wanted to have the best player in the world.

"We think Neymar will help us to dream bigger and win everything", 20-year-old fan Samy El Amrani Jorey said outside the hotel at 1:30 a.m., adopting the club's motto.

One of the criticisms of Barca's evolution in recent seasons since Pep Guardiola's departure as coach in 2012 has been that graduates from the club's once famed La Masia academy have not been given a chance as the club turned to star signings such as Suarez and Neymar.

Legend has it that the night Neymar decided was when Barcelona achieved the greatest comeback against his new club PSG. Neymar's transfer however, will be the biggest move Qatar has made so far, a sign that their attempt to influence proceedings in world football won't come to a halt any time soon.

Paris Saint-Germain lost an incredible Champions' League match to Barcelona in March.

"What I think about is my happiness and to be together with my family, I want them to be happy".
