Neymar: I did the opposite of what my father wanted


American show SportsCenter tweeted a graphic of 10 of the NBA's leading players - including LeBron James and Steph Curry - saying "this 10-man NBA roster costs 100m US dollars less than Neymar".

"Being the most expensive player in the world is not a burden".

Neymar opened a new extravagant chapter in soccer history Friday as the game's costliest player by fending off questions about his financial motivations as deftly as he repels opponents on the pitch.

They captioned it with: "We are delighted to announce that we've pipped PSG to the post". But Neymar said he is "always hungry for football, and I think I can play".

The fee paid for Neymar means he is the world most expensive footballer surpassing the record held by Paul Pogba when Manchester United used £89m to acquire his services last season.

This could jeopardize Qatar's World Cup plan, as well as threaten the country's long-term economic development.

"It was one of the toughest decisions of my life", he told a press conference at PSG's Parc des Princes headquarters. But Neymar's representative Wagner Ribeiro had said Wednesday that PSG was willing to pay the fee. "At least double", boasted Al-Khelaifi.

What Neymar and his club want is to factor in the Champions League.

"I'm shocked by the question". Neymar has a tattoo of his sister Rafaella Beckran's face on his arm, while in turn she has Neymar's eyes on hers.

Sanchez-Bote: Once the player deposits the agreed sum to free himself, he can then sign for any other club, whether Spanish or foreign. "I don't have a burden on me". You cannot calculate what it brings in anymore. "I think 99 percent of the clubs do that but, of course, we cannot compete at that level", he said. We are working very transparently with Uefa.

Qatar will hold the World Cup in 2022.

La Gazzetta also report Barcelona have also shown interest in PSG's Angel Di Maria and Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho. Its good relations with Iran and embrace of radical causes such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood have infuriated the conservative monarchies of the Gulf (Saudi Arabia and the UAE) and Egypt, leading to the recent rupture of diplomatic ties and the closure of borders. He went on to play himself.

The Saudi-led bloc later publicly released a 13-point list of demands as a condition for the end of the sanctions. "It is an amazing transfer".

He has never been shy about cashing in on his stardom and endorses more than a dozen products, including a bank, a car manufacturer and perfume and this year he was placed third on Forbes magazine's list of the highest-paid footballers behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. "I weigh 69kg, and I'll remain at 69kg".

Neymar, has said he didn't leave Barcelona because he wasn't happy, but he instead joined PSG because of the Ambition the club has. "Now, if people do not respect what we say, I will not respect what they write". I played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge.
