Neymar: ‘I didn’t move to Paris Saint-Germain for the money’

Neymar has said that he has not moved to Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain for the money.

The Brazil international completed his £200m (€222m) move to PSG on Thursday and will earn a reported £780k (€845k) per week.

“What I say to these people is they don’t know anything about my personal life. I was never motivated by money,” Neymar told reporters.

“If I was following the money, I would be somewhere else, with other clubs in other countries. I’m really sad that people still think that way and I’m glad that PSG believe in me.

“I have done nothing bad. I am sad about the fact that the fans think that.

“You are not obligated to remain at a club, if you wish to leave then the player has that right.”

Neymar could make his debut in PSG’s Ligue 1 opener against Amiens on Saturday.
