Paris St-Germain have signed Neymar for a world record fee of an astonishing 222m euros (£200m) from Barcelona.

The mind-blowing deal for the 25-year-old Brazilian smashes the previous record set when Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United from Juventus for £89m last year.

Neymar will earn a reported £782,000 before tax in the French capital.

He has signed a five-year contract and said: “I am extremely happy to join PSG. Since I arrived in Europe, they have always been one of the most competitive and ambitious.

“The biggest challenge, what most motivated me to join my new teammates is to help PSG to conquer the titles that their fans want.

“PSG’s ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings.

“From today, I will do everything I can to help my new teammates & to open up new horizons for my club.”
