“If I was following money, I might be in different team in a different country” – Neymar

‘I’ve done nothing bad. I’m sad that Barcelona fans think that. You’re not obligated to stay – if you want to leave, that’s it” – Neymar

“I’m 69 kilos, I don’t have a burden on my back. I’m happy, it is not a burden.” – Neymar

    I think it’s pretty awesome to be honest, I’d love to see PSG with 6 Brasilians play in the UCL this time around, With Neymar they wouldn’t lose a 4-0 agg. This season will be a good one for all the big leagues.

  2. Will Hung says:

    I have heard talk about part of his reasoning (wonga aside) for moving away from Barcelona was to help land the world player of the year award away from Messi’s shadow. I can’t see it being any easier at PSG in my view, history has shown its generally players from established cartel of European clubs. Going to take a special effort to break that chain…

    I believe him. If he was in it solely for money, he’d have signed with Zenit or Guangzhou Evergrande

  4. Bruno says:


    He’s leaving Spain to get away from the tax investigations.
    Do you know brazilian government has confiscated some $100m from Neymar? Helicopters, planes, apartments… he owes more than $100m in taxes here in Brazil. His whole career is marked by laundered money. His father is a criminal.
